Phantasm vs Re-Animator!?! Yes, please!

Now that we've had a fifth Phantasm, who would be up for a crossover with the Re-Animator franchise? Perhaps Dr. Herbert West was one of the doctor's at Reggie's hospital! Or even worse, a colleague of the Tall Man? The Re-Animator has already crossed over with Evil Dead's Ash in a groovy comic mini-series, so why not PhantasmProp maker and sphere master Mark Phillips of Nightmares Unlimited has put together a terrific new prop display that teases the very concept. I especially love all the little details like the mini-spacegate poles andmausoleum marble background. Excellent work, Mark!

Interestingly, the hypodermic-needle equipped silver sphere is strikingly similar to the nightmare vision that first led Don Coscarelli to incorporate the creation into Phantasm.
