This Phantasm sphere Christmas ornament is not a dream… BOOOOOOY!


Phantasm is one of the great influential cult horror movies. Released in 1979, the film unfolds like a strange teenage nerd dream–a little bit B-movie, a little bit Something Wicked This Way Comes. In some ways, 2016 was the year of Phantasm. We lost the franchise’s iconic co-star Angus Scrimm in January, there was a 4K restoration of the original film, and the series concluded with Phantasm: Ravager.

Ending the year on a high note: there are now Christmas ornaments in the shape of The Tall Man’s badass silver spheres.

That’s right, Mondo collaborated with Phantasm creator Don Coscarelli to create these awesome death spheres of yuletide glee. Well… sort of. Unfortunately these Christmas ornaments won’t get to you in time for this Christmas. It says on the Mondo website that the estimated shipping date is January 2017. Maybe they have to be examined by shrunken QA workers on Mars first?

Check out a festive image of the ornament in the gallery. Learn more about these Phantasm Christmas ornaments here, BOOOOOY!
