The Tall Man... with balls of steel

    A retrospective of the "Phanstasm" films, which kind of flew under the radar in the era of "Halloween," "Friday the 13th" and "Nightmare on Elm Street."

    The Tall Man -- and, yes, his balls of steel -- got to me as a kid, though.

    Those movies were stupid. And most of the horror films he cites were crap.

    Oh, I know, but as a kid, that tall dude scared the crap out of me.

    You're right, when the best thing about it is a floating steel ball (pretty good effects for the times), it doesn't say anything at all for the story.

    I was kind of creepy, but I could never figure out those stupid balls.

    Thought this was going to be about the new and improved Big Tex at the Texas State Fair.

    I love the 'Phantasm' movies, and I'm not ashamed to admit it.
