Phantasm: Ravager (2016), the fifth film in the nearly-40-year arc of the Phantasm series, ends with a bittersweet reunion.
Brothers Mike and Jody and their best friend Reggie, the protagonists from the original 1979 film, sit inside the trademark black Plymouth Barracuda.
They had been separated over the course of their endless battle against the otherworldly Tall Man and his minions. Now, as they sit in the muscle car, they exchange wordless looks.

When it comes to horror movies, give me a good remake over a good sequel any day.
Horror films are self-contained magic acts, and sequels strip away all the mystery that drew you to the original movie in the first place by inevitably adding backstory and blowing a small magic act out of proportion. A remake, by its nature, has the potential to take a brilliant idea and resurrect it for new audiences to discover.
