Charles Band announces the release of The Evil Clergyman…


The Holy Grail of Lovecraftian Cinema, the Empire Pictures short film The Evil Clergyman, is finally seeing the light of day according to cult filmmaker Charles Band, and he's released footage of the film to prove it! Produced and directed by Band as part of his Pulse Pounders anthology in 1988, the film is a who's who of Lovecraft film veterans including writer Dennis Paoli (Re-Animator, Dagon), the Re-Animator trio of Jeffrey Combs, Barbara Crampton and David Gale (who plays Brown Jenkin, borrowed from Lovecraft's Dreams in the Witch House), and genre favorite David Warner (The Unnamable, Cast a Deadly Spell). I've asked Charles many times over the years about the film, and he's always said that he would love to release it, but was unable to because of legal issues, but it looks like he's finally found a way to make it happen...

The film will make its debut on FullMoonHorror.com, which launches at 7:00 pm on October 21st, but you can get your first taste of The Evil Clergyman in the clip below! A specific screening date has yet to be announced, but watch this space for details...
