Phantasm V: Ravager Review:
Connecting the PHANTASM Universe + Origin of the Tall Man:
I love this series…
There needs to be more…because there is so much more left to explain.
Ravager simply pulls the story forward…It doesn’t really tie up many loose ends.
It felt like it was supposed to be [at least some version of] the fifth installment…But it doesn’t feel like it was intended to be the end.
One of the biggest problems with this series, is that it never honestly broke through…and making sequels was a constant fight [after the second one]…
…I think, Don simply gave up the fight…and put out there what he had left…calling it “the end”.
…It sort of can be…but it’s not a satisfying end…not for this series.
That being said…Ravager is not a movie to miss, if you’re a fan of the series.
