Band was no doubt aware of this when he mounted an ambitious little project entitled PULSE POUNDERS in 1987. The concept behind this anthology was to provide half hour mini-sequels to a couple of popular Empire productions – THE DUNGEONMASTER (1984) and TRANCERS (1985) – and fill the third slot with another Lovecraft adaptation. With Gordon tied up filming ROBOT JOX (1989), Band took directorial control but planned a full RE-ANIMATOR reunion as he brought back Jeffrey Combs, Barbara Crampton, and David Gale for an adaptation of Lovecraft’s short story “The Evil Clergyman.” Also back was screenwriter Dennis Paoli, who put the kink in the earlier adaptations and continued that path here.

He tells her that the rat-man is Jonathan’s animal familiar and that “he only wants your soul.” Ladies, you thought your old boyfriend destroying your credit rating was bad? Brady then has her second encounter with Jonathan and he proves how well hung he is…and not in the way you think, pervs! He admits he committed suicide and then does the act again, hanging himself in center of the room from a ceiling beam. He’s still alive though and asks her to kiss him. When she says she can’t reach him, he slyly says, “Kiss me like you used to.” Damn, brother be smooth. This gives us an implied hanging blowjob that you know Lovecraft always wanted in his work. The clergyman reappears to stop her, but she bashes his head in and then proceeds to hang herself. Her death complete, Jonathan begs his familiar to have her body and it is granted. The short ends with Miss Brady walking out of the room with Jonathan’s soul now nestled safely inside. Damn, he is totally a freak.
