Kehr’s Weekly Recap: Phantasm (1979)

A spotty little horror movie (1979), effective here and there through some appealing eccentricities. Don Coscarelli (Bubba Ho-Tep) served as writer, director, cinematographer, and editor, showing a fair amount of raw ability and suggesting, at times, a disciplined Brian De Palma. The film was produced entirely in Oregon, and its regional peculiarities add some outside interest. 87 min.
