To date, there have been six female leads in the Phantasm franchise. The first, was the wonderful “Lady In Lavender,” Kathy (Kat) Lester (Phantasm). Just as memorable are Samantha (Sam) Phillips and Paula Irvine (Phantasm II), Cindy Ambuehl and Gloria Lynn Henry (Phantasm III: Lord of the Dead) and – the latest – Heidi Leigh (Phantasm IV: Infinity).
Kristen Deem played a role in getting this shoot together. Kristen is one of the Women of Phantasm who work behind the scenes – their names flying by in the end credits- and, basically, who never get the public attention they deserve for all that they mean to the production family. So, here’s a little tribute to them.
