BUYSOUNDTRAX Records presents the soundtrack for BEASTMASTER 2: THROUGH THE PORTAL OF TIME, featuring music composed and conducted by Robert Folk (TOY SOLDIERS, POLICE ACADEMY, THERE BE DRAGONS) for the 1991 fantasy film produced and directed by Sylvio Tabet and starring Marc Singer (V, THE BEASTMASTER, DALLAS), the lovely Kari Wuhrer (SLIDERS, EIGHT LEGGED FREAKS, KING OF THE ANTS), Sarah Douglas (SUPERMAN II, CONAN THE DESTROYER, RETURN OF SWAMP THING), Robert Z’Dar (MANIAC COP series, TANGO & CASH) and Wings Hauser (THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS, VICE SQUAD, SIEGE OF FIREBASE GLORIA) in the role of Arklon.

The character of Dar, valiant warrior who can telepathically communicate with animals, was introduced in Don Coscarelli’s 1982 fantasy film, THE BEASTMASTER. Very loosely based on concepts in Andre Norton’s 1959 science fiction novel of the same name, Coscarelli’s film transposed Norton’s extra-planetary adventure novel to a barbaric sword-and-sorcery world not far removed from that of CONAN THE BARBARIAN, which had preceded BEASTMASTER into production and was released some months earlier in the same year, launching a new but short-lived trend of heroic fantasy movies. While the film did not enjoy huge success at the box office, it did develop quite a strong cult following, thanks to frequent screenings on cable television and this prompted the filming of a sequel nearly a decade later, helmed this time by Sylvio Tabet, who served as executive producer on the original film. Filmmaker Jim Wynorski and his frequent collaborator R. J. Robertson came up with the story and drafted the first screenplay, which was then revised by Tabet along with Ken Hauser and Doug Miles. The story had little connection to the events of the first film and the tone is definitely much lighter.

BEASTMASTER 2: THROUGH THE PORTAL OF TIME finds Dar (Singer) confronted by his half-brother Arklon (Hauser) and a sorceress named Lyranna (Sarah Douglas) who have opened a dimensional portal to present day Los Angeles. When the portal opens on our side, it accidentally captures trendy L.A. girl Jackie Trent (Kari Wuhrer), propelling her into Arklon’s world. Befriended by Dar, the Beastmaster brings her back through the portal to Beverly Hills, in pursuit of Arklon and Lyranna before they can obtain a neutron bomb, with which Arklon plans to return and rule their own world.

Previously released on compact disc in 1991 and out of print for many years, BUYSOUNDTRAX Records brings BEASTMASTER 2: THROUGH THE PORTAL OF TIME back to compact disc with remastered sound by Digital Outland. The booklet includes new liner notes by author Randall Larson, including new insights from composer Robert Folk on this exciting large scale orchestral score.
