Established by producer and director Charles Band in 1983, Empire Pictures quickly became notorious for the horror-comedy classics made during its brief but legendary lifespan. With wild special effects, outrageous humour and over-the-top horror action Ghoulies, Troll and TerrorVision were three of Empire Pictures finest works, and each movie featured an unforgettable score by Charles’ award-winning composer brother Richard Band.Now, these scores have been carefully remastered and are presented for the very first time on half-speed mastered, Limited Edition 180g coloured vinyl in stunning packaging with liner notes from composer and master of the horror and science-fiction soundtrack Richard Brand.
