In the world of ‘horror movie hair’, sometimes it’s not about how much you have on top……but how you work the other areas to compensate for those lacking locks that should be on top. Enter into this post…..REGGIE! From the 1979 Don Coscarelli classic, Phantasm. And if you have been living under a rock the last 38 years, here’s a peek at Reggie’s glorious hair in action:
Aww yeah! Get it, Reggie’s hair…..GET IT! Now, Reggie’s receding hairline might not be as prominent in this pic as his ice cream vendor getup is……but you can definitely see how the hair that he does have is basically having sweet sex with the air blowing to and fro in this scene.

On this week’s Sunday Bloody Sunday, it’s time to enter the lovely world of Don Coscarelli’s Phantasm. More specifically, Phantasm III: Lord Of The Dead, an above-average sequel that if anything is as enjoyable as it is ridiculous. Case in point: A wannabe thug gets his throat slit when a kid throws a frisbee at him after he breaks into the kid’s house with his wardrobe-challenged crew. Don’t believe me? Then feast your eyes on the clip below and prepare to see your first death by frisbee.
Time to loosen up the belt buckle after eating 15 pounds of turkey and stuffing with heavy gravy and give thanks for a few things. And what am I thankful for? Well I’m glad you asked! Because here are my five things that I am thankful for this year. Continue reading →
