Two college dropouts must save the world from the effects of a very freaky street drug which sends users traveling across time and to other dimensions. When the users return, some of them are no longer human. Suddenly a silent, otherworldly invasion is underway, and mankind needs a hero. What it gets instead is John and David who can barely hold down jobs. Can they stop the horror and save humanity? No. No, they can’t. PHANTASM director Don Coscarelli’s underrated gem blends horror, sci-fi, time-travel, and stoner comedies to create a uniquely unnerving film.
Cast: Chase Williamson, Rob Mayes, Paul Giamatti
