Winter 1988 issue. Second issue (of four published in total 1988-1990) of glossy cinema horror/sf small-press magazine.
''digest-size saddle-stapled cinema semiprozine. Four issues, 1988 to 1990. A worthy attempt at a more scholarly film publication on horror and sf than generally seen in the US, Phantasma perhaps inevitably attracted too small an audience to survive. Features included a study of the Frankenstein Monster in film, a tribute to Boris Karloff tribute, and a survey of Hammer Films. The final issue featured an in-depth look at the career of Ray Harryhausen, together with his mentor Willis H O'Brien'' (Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).
