McNeill has been lurking behind the scenes of Phantasm since 2007, the year in which he launched the popular Phantasm Archive website. In 2008 he personally organized Michael Baldwin’s return to the convention scene for several cast reunions. McNeill has also designed official websites for Phantasm veterans including co-star Bill Thornbury and talented SPFX creator Mark Shostrom. In 2012 McNeill helped coordinate supplemental features for Scream Factory’s Phantasm II collector’s edition Blu-Ray release and served as an early consultant for The Ball Is Back documentary. Phantasm Exhumed is the culmination of half a decade of research.
