Empire International Pictures

Empire International Pictures

Empire Pictures was a small scale theatrical distribution company that was formed in 1983 by Charles Band.

The company produced a number of low-budget horror and fantasy features including "Trancers" and "The Dungeonmaster". It is perhaps best known for "Re-Animator" and "Ghoulies" which were major box office hits for the company in 1985.

Other Empire Pictures included "From Beyond", "Dolls", "Troll", "Crawlspace" and "Robot Jox". Empire Pictures began to collapse in 1989 due to financial problems.

The studio was originally situated in Rome, Italy. After Empire folded, Charles Band then formed another company, Full Moon Entertainment, which also specializes in horror/fantasy genre films.

Empire Pictures is not to be confused with the American film distribution company Empire Pictures, which was established in 2000 and focuses on releasing art-house and foreign films.
