LISTEN UP - Phantasm Ravager Score Hits the Net!

Now this is marvelous news. Phans have been begging for several years now (Okay, it's only been me. I've been begging) for Don Coscarelli to release the full score for Phantasm Ravager. While Don seems no closer to doing that, we are extremely fortunate that composer Chris Stone has uploaded the full unreleased score to his official website!

You can listen to all ten tracks here. It's around fifty-five minutes in total. And yes, the final track ends with the kick-ass "Reggie Rap" from the film's end credits. Ravager may have divided phans with its bold story choices, but you must concede that it had a stellar soundtrack.

New Phantasm Pin Honors the Fortuneteller

Phans may recall a groovy Fortuneteller pin we posted about on this very blog three years back. That pin is now officially sold out, but fret not - there's a new collector's pin honoring the classic Phantasm character. The latest release from The Sally Hardesty Collection depicts the memorable sign outside the Fortuneteller's home of a hand on a tarot card.

Reasonably priced at $10 each, this 1.25" pin and its variant are limited to a scant 25 copies each. While you're pin shopping, I'd encourage you check out the Sally Hardesty Collection's other horror pins - they're fantastic!

Impressive Etch-a-Sketch Art of the Tall Man!

From the Instagram page of Mike James aka PirateKiller1985, dig this terrific new artwork of the Tall Man and a silver sphere! All I can say is.... WOW! Mike not only sketched incredible detail on the Tall Man himself, but even on the mausoleum behind him as well. And how appropriate that he also sketched a silver sphere on a miniature Etch-A-Sketch. This is just too nice to shake clean. If you'd like to see more of Mike's impressive Etch-a-Sketch creations, visit his IG page.

It looks like Mike was recreating an iconic image from the set of 1988's Phantasm II. I've included the original shot at the bottom of this post for comparison purposes. Again, way to go, Mike! You've won the internet for today, hands down.

Dig This Incredible Phantasm Prop Display

As any collector knows, there is a unique art to displaying your items, especially when you're dealing with screen-used props. And for one lucky Phantasm phan, sculptor and prop restorer Tom Spina has assisted in artfully displaying two extremely rare items from the franchise! Dig the photos below of the incredible display put together by Tom and his team at Tom Spina Designs.

TSD restored the latex dwarf mask, mounted both it and the silver sphere, created a Red Planet backdrop/base, and added a miniature spacegate! You can read more about the project and see additional photos at Tom Spina's official website. The end result is stunning. I can almost hear the hum of the gate and feel the heat from the crimson world.

Is anyone else feeling the envy here or is it just me? Thanks to Scott Pensa for the head's up on this!
