    I was at Fry's today looking for some good horror movies to buy and picked up Phantasm: Special Edition and Phantasm IV: Oblivion.*
    I love this series and watching these two again got me wondering when the heck the other two films will be released.
    I know the second installment was put out by Universal. Do they still hold the rights? Who owns Part 3? Anybody know?
    * BTW: Fry's is selling both of these for $9.99 right now. In case you're interested...

    Funny you mention these....
    I just got my Region 2 Phantasm box set with 1 - 3 in it.
    #4 arrived also seperately.
    Another reason to buy that region free player.

    Yeah, but those are pan-and-scan. No offense, but I'd rather just hold on to my tapes until Universal wises up and puts the sequels out.

    I wish Universal would stop being so lazy and release Phantasm II & III. I've also ordered the region 2 boxset. They should be arriving this week. I may be superstitious, but in the past, for any region 2 DVDs I've picked up, the studios annouce a region 1 release shortly afterwards. (Suspiria, Doctor Who and The Prisoner DVDs)
    How truly bad is the quality? People have said that compression artifacts exist. Better than the VHS? The list of extras certainly sound great.

    What is the latest with Phantasm II coming out? I love parts 1 and 2 and I have been waiting for part 2 a LONG time now.....

    Also, even though part 1 is not anamorphic, it looks DAMN good. For $10 new, you cannot go wrong.
