Screenshot Saturday: Phantasm II: 2017 Well Go USA vs Well Go USA 2019 Blu-rays

Three years ago, Well Go USA released a massive Phantasm box set that had everything a Phantasm fan could want. That is except for a remastered Phantasm II. In 2019, Well Go USA released the Phantasm Sphere Collection and this one includes a brand new beautiful remaster of Phantasm II. On this edition of Screenshot Saturday, we look at the both Phantasm IIs and take in the remaster.
