Phantasm (1979, dir. Don Coscarelli)

A funeral home turns out to be a portal to another dimension. Hugely enjoyable horror/fantasy with elements of Argento and its own distinctive dream logic. Defiantly odd, and with moments of genuine weirdness, plus effective scares.

    1. I saw part 2 at the movies back in the mid-80s (Having not seen part 1 at that point). It was a bit confusing! Not seen the latter sequels, but I’m up for a box set marathon.
