In anticipation of Phantasm V: Ravager, I am visiting some of the locations used in the series.   For each film, click on the link:
      Phantasm  (originally published September 2013)
      Phantasm II
      Phantasm III: Lord Of The Dead

First up is the Pearson house.  (UPDATE March 2015: Sorry to hear that this location is no more!)
