This is off-topic to the post...sort of. I moved into the house I'm in now 20 years ago this year. It was a basket case. Having been a rental for the previous 25 years the house needed virtually everything. Starting with a new roof which leaked so badly that I remember having to let the rain water pour out of the main bedroom (yes OUT)by opening the sliding glass door. The only remnant of the previous occupant was this crazy Phantasm poster pinned on what is now the laundry room wall. The way the house was laid out you could see it from the totally opposite end...which happens to be the main bathroom. I left it up for a long time. Not sure why...maybe a cosmic reminder of the consequences of buying a house with the two little fateful words attached....'as is'. I guess this was a mixed omen. Since then the house has seen many pumpkins grown here, one of which set a record for weight in the southern hemisphere for 2007 and has witnessed some fairly large Halloween parties with the appropriate memories attached (including a couple of visits from the local pd). Who knew what could come of a house with the only witness from its past being a poster of Phantasm. Thanks for the memories Rot.
absolutely awesome story/memory.
Perfect little movie..love everything about it. Cool twist too with the whole Alien angle, that always felt so strange & wonderful to me. Genius!!& Autumnleaf THAT IS a Fabulous story!!.<3sometimes Fact really is so much stranger & better than Fiction, just like this story.
Ha! Glad you enjoyed it. Didn't mention the pillow we found in the crawl-through under the kitchen floor. I guess that is another story.
