Phantasm R2 Box Set in October

Anchor Bay UK have announced the long-awaited release of what is arguably the most highly anticipated horror DVD title of the year, their five-disc Phantasm Box Set which arrives on 31st October 2005.

Available in two amazing, beautifully packaged Special Collector's Editions – the Phantasm Digipak and the Limited Edition Phantasm Sphere – the set includes all four films from writer-director Don Coscarelli's revered and much-loved horror saga together for the first time, fully remastered under the supervision of Coscarelli himself: Phantasm Phantasm II, Phantasm III: Lord of the Dead and Phantasm IV: Oblivion. Both editions also come complete with a fifth Bonus Disc packed with exclusive brand new interviews, featurettes and special features, all produced with the co-operation of Don Coscarelli, plus many of the cast members and creative personnel involved in the making of the Phantasm films.

Destined to become a must-have collector's item for every horror fan, the Phantasm Sphere (£34.99 RRP) features the five discs housed in a shiny, silver facsimile of the razor-pronged killer orbs seen in the films. Limited to 20,000 units only, the sphere itself comes in a silver "Easter egg"-style carton and will be exclusive to this UK Region 2 release.

The Phantasm Digipak (£29.99 RRP) comes in a silver-effect mirrorboard box fronted by an eye-dazzling lenticular image of the Phantasm series' arch-villain, the Tall Man (Angus Scrimm) holding one of the deadly spheres.

The four films - Phantasm Phantasm II, Phantasm III: Lord of the Dead and Phantasm IV: Oblivion - will also be available the same day as individual single-disc DVD editions priced at £16.99 for Phantasm, and £14.99 each for its sequels.
