Starring Jeffrey Combs, Barbara Crampton, David Warner, and David Gale. In 1987 Charles Band directed PULSESPOUNDERS, an anthology film comprised of three 30 minute sequels to the biggest hits of Empire Pictures: "H.P. LOVECRAFT's THE EVIL CLERGYMAN", a "TRANCERS" sequel, and a sequel to "THE DUNGEONMASTER". PULSEPOUNDERS was shot and edited in 1988 before circumstances prevented it from being released. In addition the original 35mm negative for the 3 episodes has never been found. For the last 25 years, fans have been excited to see any footage from this lost treasure.
In 2011 a "PULSEPOUNDERS" work print on VHS 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. LOVECRAFT's THE EVIL CLERGYMAN" re-unites horror's hottest duo: Jeffrey Combs and Barbara Crampton! "THE EVIL CLERGYMAN" also stars horror legends David Warner and David Gale (Dr. Hill from "RE-ANIMATOR"). The historic cinematic premiere was attended by director Charles Band, stars Jeffrey Combs and Barbara Crampton, and composer Richard Band in Chicago at Flashback Weekend. Screenings have also been arranged for the H.P. Lovecraft festivals in both Los Angeles and Portland.
