WELL GO USA ANNOUNCES
EXTENSIVE ALL-NEW BONUS MATERIALS INCLUDED IN
THE PHANTASM COLLECTION

Six-Disc Box Set Bursting with New Bonus Features,
Plus 120-page Retrospective Book & Reversible Poster



PLANO, TEXAS. (March 9, 2017) – Well Go USA Entertainment announced today the all-new bonus materials included in the upcoming THE PHANTASM COLLECTION, scheduled to release in a limited edition, six-disc Blu-ray™ box set on April 11. In addition to the previously released archival material included in the box set, Phantasm creator Don Coscarelli has produced hours of never-before-seen material, featuring new interviews with cast and filmmakers, as well as rare archival materials.

“Well Go USA has done an outstanding job in curating the ultimate Phantasm collection. This terrific new release rivals the best Blu-ray box sets ever in its size and depth,” said Don Coscarelli. “I am so excited to share these never-before-seen features with our devoted fans, who will now be able to witness just how the Phantasm films were created in this stunning high-definition presentation.”

“This box set is the answer to every Phantasm fan’s prayers,” said Doris Pfardrescher, President & CEO,
Well Go USA Entertainment. “The filmmakers have gone above and beyond in order to create the most immersive Phantasm experience possible in one comprehensive box set.”

One of the world’s most popular franchises in the history of horror, the Phantasm film series has terrified fans for generations and this new box set features all five frightening films in the series – PHANTASM: REMASTERED (1979), PHANTASM II (1988), PHANTASM III: LORD OF THE DEAD (1994), PHANTASM IV: OBLIVION (1998) and the most recent installment PHANTASM: RAVAGER (2016). Packaging on all five films in the collection will feature reversible sleeve art, with one side highlighting the original packaging and the reverse showing new artwork uniform exclusive to the collection. In addition, the discs themselves will be BD50, which allow for less compression and a higher quality audio, as well as more space for the extensive bonus materials.

Also included with the collection is Phantasm Compendium, a 120-page book featuring exclusive interviews and rare, behind-the-scenes photos chronicling the history and impact of the franchise, plus a 21” x 27” reversible poster featuring the iconic original theatrical artwork.
