Here's a photo you might've seen before - I posted it on the Archives back when Universal announced Phantasm II's release on DVD. Well, here it is in massive resolution! Enjoy! (and see if you can tell they're all sitting atop the Tall Man's hearse!)
Here are the folks I recognize... Angus Scrimm bottom row, co-producer Roberto Quezada to his right, Reggie Bannister on far left, cinematographer Daryn Okada sitting to his left, on the far right we have James LeGros with shades on, Mark Shostrom behind him and to the right, Don Coscarelli behind Mark and Robert Kurtzman beside Don. Sitting on top of the hearse you can find Paula Irvine and below on the hood, Melanie Kay
Kris, who all can you point out? Pretty sure Wayne Beauchamp and the Duffin brothers are in here somewheres. Is that Del Valle standing next to Reggie?
Very cool photo! Phantasm 2 was the first experience with Phantasm wwwaaaayyy back in '88 !! I remember going back to school the next day and telling two of my best friends how blown away i was by this movie! It showed just how much it made an impact on me, in a lot of my art work after that, strange orbs just started appearing randomly in my sketches. Hhhmmm...how odd?! Is this all just a dream......
Three years later and I finally am able to respond to Dustin's request for identifying the crew members in this photo! Found my old Phantasm albums, with my crew photo inside. I'd written names across most of the people wayyyyy back in 1988. Here is that album page.
Some of these folks went on to make names for themselves in the film industry. For example, Shane (in black hoodie giving the thumbs up) who became DP on the latest "Terminator" sequel (the poor soul Christian Bale went off on).
secret007: What I read was Lionsgate confirms SAW: Legacy will be released October 27, 2017. Filming begins September 12, 2016. James Wan is executive producer. Directors are Michael Spierig and Peter Spierig. The story will take place 7 years later.

secret007: Sorry about the last message being off-topic. I just came from a SAW forum and my mind was still there. I forgot momentarily I had logged onto Phantasm. I can't wait to see Phantasm: Ravager.

postmortem: Hello, everyone. Looks like the reason I couldn't log in for so long was that I was trying to use Safari with no luck. Firefox works, though. Thanks, Dustin, for the tip! :-D
