Puppet Master is a 1989 American horror film written by Charles Band and Kenneth J. Hall, and directed by David Schmoeller. It is the first film in the Puppet Master franchise and stars Paul Le Mat, Irene Miracle, Matt Roe and Kathryn O'Reilly as psychics who are plotted against by a former colleague, using puppets animated by an Egyptian spell. Originally intended for theatrical release in summer 1989, before being released on home video the following September, Puppet Master was ultimately pushed to a direct-to-video release on October 12, 1989, as Charles Band felt he was likely to make more money this way than he would in the theatrical market. The film was very popular in the video market and since developed a large cult following that has led to the production of ten sequels.

Pulse Pounders is a 1988 anthology film directed by Charles Band. The film is composed of three 30 minute films, two of which are sequels to The Dungeonmaster and Trancers. The third is an adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft's The Evil Clergyman. Pulse Pounders was originally shot during 1987 and 1988 with the intention of being released, but was shelved due to the collapse of Empire Pictures. A workprint of Pulse Pounders was discovered in 2011 and was digitally restored. The Evil Clergyman segment received its world premiere at a showing at the Chicago Flashback Weekend. The movie received mostly positive reviews. HorrorNews.net stated that the movie was a "must-watch for any Re-Animator fan" but that it "doesn’t quite live up to Re-Animator". The Evil Clergyman was later released as a DVD by Full Moon Pictures in October 2012. The Trancers segment received its world premiere with the launch of Full Moon Streaming with the title Trancers: City of Lost Angels on September 6, 2013. It will later be released on DVD in November 2013.
