Though electronically re-channeled for Stereo, "Phantasm" has a very well done sound mix on this LD release. Suprisingly, MVC used seperate musfx and dialog tracks, electronically enhancing only the music and effects while keeping the dialog centered. Thus, the disc sounds like real stereo and even decodes nicely into surround sound. Even the fidelity of the music is extraordinary with none of the 'hollowness' that other rechanneled titles from MVC are known for. Known MVC versions include U.S. and Japanese pressings on 1-disc/2-sides. The Japanese disc is found in an American jacket with "Made in Japan" sticker. There also exists a Japanese printed jacket that has 'MAGNETIC VIDEO' on the cover, instead of the 'MVC' logo. On copies examined, Side 2 exhibits a noisier/grainer image than what is found on Side 1.
