- After the mild box-office results of Phantasm II (1988), Universal Studios chose not to personally pursue a sequel but did offer to distribute it should Don Coscarelli and associates make it themselves. With no casting restrictions this time, Coscarelli offered the role of Mike to his original performer, A. Michael Baldwin, who returned to the role after almost 16 years.
Production started in late 1992 and wrapped in mid 1993. The distribution of the project was then put on hold by Universal for almost a year. After a very limited theatrical release in 1994, the movie went straight to video in 1995.
Apart from reprising his role as The Tall Man, Angus Scrimm also plays the part of the doctor who opens Mike's eye to check his pupil with a mini-torch in the opening sequence. The nurse next to him is played by Kathy Lester, who portrayed the "Lady in Lavender" in Phantasm (1979).
A. Michael Baldwin's wife, Jennifer Bross, has a cameo appearance near the beginning as the nurse behind a desk who greets Reggie while listening to a Walkman.
The flying hearse was performed by stuntman Bob Ivy. Using a seven foot tall "pipe ramp," he managed to get the massive hearse airborne and it traveled over one hundred and sixty feet through the air. Ivy later played the "Demon Trooper" in Phantasm IV: Oblivion (1998) and the title role in Bubba Ho-tep (2002).
