Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"I don't know whether you could accurately call Phantasm II "good" or not, but as a gore-filled piece of '80s horror with a premise unlike any other in the genre, it's completely enjoyable."
‑ Mike McGranaghan, Film Racket
"Second in the horrorific series, not for everyone's cup of plasma."
‑ Steve Crum,

‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"i really didn't get the point"
‑ Stefan Birgir Stefansson,
"Another fun entry in the Phantasm series."
‑ Fred Topel,
"Phantasm II has a nice sense of fun to it which makes it the perfect viewing material for this time of year."
‑ Steve "Uncle Creepy" Barton, Dread Central
"There's little to enjoy about this second outing save for Scrimm's deliciously menacing specter of death."
‑ Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
