1970s horror is pretty stupid. I should have realised this but, you know, it’s good to give things a go. Apparently Phantasm is a classic of 70s horror, inspiring many films and directors, including George Lucas. It is set in a small US town where brothers Mike and Tommy occasionally talk to each other. Mike attends the funeral of a friend who was killed by a bare breasted blonde in high heels in a cemetery and at the funeral home, Tommy sees strange things.
There are flying silver spheres that drill holes in brains and spurt red paint, severed fingers that ooze yellow paint and lots of very wooden acting. I couldn’t stick it out for long and ditched the film about half way in.
