Vintage Phantasm Interview

Man, I love me some Phantasm. I think a big part of my love for weird movies comes as a direct result of having my 10-year-old brain blown by Phantasm back in the 80s. At the end of that movie I didn't know what the hell I'd just seen but I knew I loved it and to this day I have a pretty high, possibly Phantasm-induced tolerance for movies that don't make a bit of narrative sense but are thick on the style and atmosphere.

I also love YouTube for blessing us all with stuff like this, a 1979 video of director Don Coscarelli and Grammy winner Angus Scrimm being interviewed for a local Miami tv program by a colleague of Ron Burgundy.
