This half-hour short, starring Jeffrey Combs, Barbara Crampton, David Gale, and David Warner was to be part of the horror anthology Pulse Pounders, which never saw the light of day.

Doctor William Dyer may be the smartest theoretical physicist alive, but he has just blown it. After a routine CERN experiment goes horribly wrong, Dyer has to get to the emergency data access facility he has installed in an abandoned building nearby.
A race against time to avoid unthinkable Armageddon turns into something else - a struggle with himself and his own guilt. Only now, he not alone.
Something older than time itself that has been waiting through the aeons for the chance to return.
And now, the door is open.
The Music of Jo Hyeja is a cross-cultural adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft's 'The Music of Erich Zann': a young student living in a ghetto on the edge of Seoul named Miju, encounters a mysterious upstairs neighbor, an elderly zither-player named Jo Hyeja whose bizarre musical performances fill the air each night.
A mysterious window in Mrs. Jo's lightless upper room beckons menacingly, calling Miju to the attic. Will she survive her brush with the ancient, macabre terrors summoned by a song that shatters the laws of music, sanity, and the very universe itself?
The skeleton of a rat-monkey comes to life in a room full of cursed objects in this Gothic tale with a sci-fi twist. This is the 5th film in the award winning 'Chimerascope' series by MTV and SY FY channel station ID veteran, Aurelio Voltaire. Narrated by electro-Goth, New Wave icon, Gary Numan.
The Captured Bird is a darkly poetic fable that begins with a little girl drawing figures of people with chalk on the cement of a playground. She takes notice of an unusual crack in the pavement that is seeping a mysterious black fluid, which she follows to an ominous mansion. Inside, she encounters several bizarre phenomena, including walls that bleed black and tentacles that emerge from the ceiling to touch her. She then witnesses the birth of five terrifying supernatural beings that threaten the existence of her world.
