The Evil Clergyman (1987) Hitting DVD This October

“H.P. LOVECRAFT’s THE EVIL CLERGYMAN”
TO WORLD PREMIERE AT FLASHBACK WEEKEND
CHICAGO HORROR CONVENTION
AUGUST 10-12, 2012
MUVICO THEATERS, ROSEMONT, IL

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) “TRANCERSsequel, 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.

Also, coming to DVD on October 9th, 2012! Available on http://www.fullmoondirect.com!"

It certainly sounds like a lost gem with a great cast. I guess this was a tailend production right before Empire closed down.

Instead of just releasing this segment on DVD etc. they should just focus finishing up the entire Pulse Pounders package.

I especially want to see the unseen short Trancers sequel. Love me some original Trancers.

Barbara Crampton made a comment on Facebook that Band couldn't save the other two segments. Apparently, they were in really bad shape and this one was the only one that could be restored.

This was her exact comment: "..the other two parts of the trilogy were not in good enough shape to edit together..Not sure how Band will release it..available from his website soon I'm sure."

Judging from the picture in the first post, I'd say she at least has brief nudity in the film...unless that's from one of the segments they couldn't restore.

You're not following me, on the segments thing. The other two segments are the DUNGEON MASTER and TRANCERS sequels that made up PULSE POUNDERS. Those two could not be saved, each one ran 30 minutes.

I'm tempted to go to the screening, but I went to Flashback Weekend last year and found it underwhelming. But this year Carpenter's there along with The Thing and Linda Blair with The Exorcist... If what I wanted to see wasn't spread out over two days I'd be even more tempted.

So is it safe to assume that it's only 30 minutes long?

Yes, CLERGYMAN is only 30 minutes. Which means the DVD should be cheap and affordable.
