Directors and the Monstars they inspired

The Tall Man

First appearance: Phantasm (1979)

A troubled orphan witnesses something strange at the funeral of his older brother's best friend. Further investigation reveals a terrifying secret: the owner of the funeral home is a monster from another dimension (or something.) With the help of his older brother and their best friend, local ice cream vendor Reggie, the boy attempts to destroy this fiend from another plane.

Or is it all just the nightmare of a recently orphaned young man? Three more sequels indicate it's not just a dream or is it!?

I love Phantasm. All four of them.
