The Equalizer 2 director

Denzel Washington is starring in the first sequel of his career with The Equalizer 2. Washington was doing just great without a franchise, but he found a potentially good one in Sony’s remake of the 1980s CBS television show. Months before The Equalizer came out, the studio got the ball rolling on a follow-up film, tapping the original film’s screenwriter Richard Wenk to pen the sequel. Initially, it wasn’t known if director Antoine Fuqua (The Magnificent Seven) would come back to the director’s chair, but Fuqua is indeed returning for The Equalizer 2.

phantasm ravager trailer

Don Coscarelli‘s Phantasm is one of my favorite horror movies, a dreamy, surreal, intentionally obtuse and beautifully frustrating gem that has developed a passionate cult following over the decades since its 1979 release. The first three sequels (which arrived in 1988, 1994, and 1998) are a more of a mixed bag, ranging wildly in quality even as they maintain the original’s lunatic ambition and imagination. I may not love the sequels as I love the original, but man, I’m sure glad they’re around.

That brings us to Phantasm: Ravager, the fifth and final film in the series that is set to make its world premiere at Fantastic Fest this weekend. The film’s trailer has arrived to celebrate its impending screening and…well, let’s just say that this looks like one for the fans.
