In 1987 Charles Band directed "PULSESPONDERS", an anthology film comprised of short film sequels to the biggest hits of Empire Pictures; H.P. LOVECRAFT's "THE EVIL CLERGYMAN", the first (and unseen) "TRANCERS sequel, and a sequel to "THE DUNGEONMASTER" . "PULSEPOUNDERS" was shot and edited in 1988 before circumstances prevented it from being released. "PULSEPOUNDERS" was thought to be a lost film. For the last 25 years, fans have clamored to see it.
Recently, a "PULSEPOUNDERS" work print was discovered. Charles Band and a team of digital experts have been working for the last year digitally restoring it. Richard Band, the composer of classic film scores such as "RE-ANIMATOR" and "PUPPER MASTER" has composed an original lavish 1980's style score for it! The first of the "lost" "PULSEPOUNDERS" episodes to be restored, "H.P.'s Lovecraft’s THE EVIL CLERGYMAN" re-united horrors hottest duo; Jeffrey Combs and Barbara Crampton! "THE EVIL CLERGYMAN" also stars horror legends David Warner and David Gale (Dr. Hill from "RE-ANIMATOR").
Attending this historic cinematic event will be director Charles Band, stars Jeffrey Combs and Barbara Crampton, and composer Richard Band.
