iCollector Lists Phantasm II Prop as Elm Street Prop

It would seem that prop dealer iCollector got some bad intel somewhere. Remember that creepy scene in Phantasm II where the Tall Man creature emerges from Liz' back? Well, they're selling that grotesque prop - except that they've marked it as a Freddy chest burster prop from Nightmare on Elm Street II: Freddy's Revenge. How do we know this prop is erroneously listed? Because makeup effects legend Mark Shostrom handled effects for both films and is telling us so! Plus, you know, we've got functioning eyeballs and have actually seen Phantasm II.

Here's the funny part - this isn't the first time this prop has been misrepresented as something from Elm Street. Mark Shostrom first sold the prop in 1989 and it later wound up inside a Planet Hollywood in Dallas, Texas. The prop-eatery had it listed as the snake creature from Nightmare on Elm Street III: Dream Warriors, which is also kind of crazy considering how big that Freddy-snake creature was in the film.

As always, be careful out there when you're buying Phantasm props. There are a lot of obvious fakes on the market and, it would seem, some legitimate props mislabeled as being from other films. Thanks to Mark for the tip!
