Mary Ellen Shaw

  1. Jennifer Bross, Phantasm IV: Oblivion, 1997.      As true Phans know, the old woman in the rocking chair  outside The Tall  Man’s house and next to Mike-the-hero on the hearse (still woith me?),  is the fortune teller from the first film – played by Shaw in 1978.  Here, she was embodied  by a still unidentified  lady and voiced by Bross, wife of the heroic Mike: A Michael Baldwin (as opposed to The Michael Baldwin?). Director Don Coscarelli  remains one of the few franchise creators to admit that IV was made – shock! horror! –  “just to make money out of the series.”
