Phantasm IV: Oblivion

Trivia: Originally, writer Roger Avary wrote a script entitled "Phantasm 1999AD," which would have been a post-apocalyptic adventure that chronicled the epic final battle between Mike and Reggie, and the Tall Man. Creator Don Coscarelli loved the concept, but wasn't able to secure the funding for it, so this film was made to bridge the gap between films. The project as envisioned never saw the light of day, but a few select elements from it were eventually recycled into the fifth film.


Trivia: All the flashbacks to the past are actually made up of deleted scenes from the original film.


Continuity mistake: When Mike and Jodi are walking through the "deserted" town, supposedly everyone in town has been killed by The Tall Man, when the Tall Man walks down the middle of the street you can see an old lady pushing an empty shopping cart, and a car driving around a corner in the distance.
