Phantasm (1979)

Director: Don Coscarelli

Stars: A. Michael Baldwin, Bill Thornbury, Reggie Bannister, Angus Scrimm

Jody lost his parents, so Jody looks after his little brother Mike.  Jody gets followed by Mike everywhere he goes, even  on dates.  Jody is having sex with a slutty woman in a graveyard, well she is not really a woman and he is drunk.  Mike comes running through the graveyard screaming cause he saw some little people.  He really is watching his brother have sex.  Ok!  Jody's friend Reggie enters the picture with his bad ponytail, looking 20 years older and driving an ice cream truck.  They two men like to break out their guitars and play bad  easy listening music.

The mortuary at the graveyard is run by "The Tall Man".  That is what the character is called.  The Tall Man steals the bodies that have been buried in the graveyard and sends the bodies to another planet or dominion or something.  The bodies that are stolen are brought back to life and shrunk down to help steal more bodies.  The Tall Man controls these fling silver balls that kill people in great ways, to me the best parts of the movie.  There is a terrible puppet like demon fly creature thing that attacks them. Watch if you want.
