Horror movie fans received an unexpected bumper crop in 1979, with the perfect Lovecraftian ickiness of Alien. Maybe just as important, though, was the release of Phantasm, a fumbling, seemingly hand-made shot of cinematic moonshine that somehow managed to hit a dream logic sweet spot. Given a spiffy new 4k remaster to coincide with the latest (and purportedly final) sequel, it retains its power to make you stay the hell away from your closet after dark.
