John Zaffis and the late Ed Warren.

R.I.P. ghost hunter Ed Warren

Ed Warren, who along with his wife pursued the unusual career of ghost hunter and whose cases included what would become the basis for "The Amityville Horror," died Wednesday at his home in Monroe, Conn. He was 79.

In the last five years, poor health had kept him housebound. In March 2001, he got up during the night to let the cat in and collapsed on the floor. Paramedics restarted his heart, but he was in a coma for 11 weeks and never regained his speech.

Warren grew up in Bridgeport, Conn., in a house he thought was haunted. He firmly believed in ghosts, demons and other unworldly creatures — and in helping people deal with unwanted visitations. He would answer the phone at all hours to counsel panicked homeowners from across the country who couldn't find anyone else to advise them when they said their furniture started flying.

"Most people snicker," Tony Spera, the Warrens' son-in-law, told the Hartford Courant this week. "But if it happens to you and you know it is real, it is frightening."

Warren, who called himself a religious demonologist, is also survived by his wife, Lorraine; a daughter, Judy Spera; two grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren. During their 61-year marriage and partnership, the Warrens investigated more than 10,000 suspected hauntings in the U.S., Japan, Australia and Europe.

Although the Warrens didn't ask for compensation for their ghost busting, they made a living on the college lecture circuit talking about the supernatural and paranormal activity. The subject of their most famous investigation — and most requested lecture — was the reported psychic disturbances at a house in Amityville, N.Y., where a family was brutally murdered in 1974.

The story became the basis for Jay Anson's 1977 book "The Amityville Horror" as well as the 1979 film of the same name. The Warrens were consultants for the 1982 film "Amityville II: The Possession." Steven Novella, a Yale neurologist involved with the New England Skeptical Society, disputed the Warrens' claims about haunted events that followed the real murders at the Long Island house.

"The people who lived in the house, and their lawyer, all admitted that it was an elaborate hoax, but to this day Ed Warren believes it was a legitimate haunting," Novella said in 1999. That same year Warren said, "If anyone can prove it was a hoax, I will give them $3,000. No one has been able to disprove the story."

BLIND BEAST VS. KILLER DWARF and SCREWED hits the market, courtesy of Panik House!

Blind Beast vs Killer Dwarf (2001, Japan)

"Teruo Ishii is a fantastic director, a great director! I love Teruo Ishii." - Quentin Tarantino


When prolific Japanese Cult Director Teruo Ishii passed away in 2005, BLIND BEAST VS. KILER DWARF became his epitaph. This film stands as the culmination of his life’s work and includes the bizarre and shocking excesses that one can come to expect from the director of FEMALE YAKUZA TALE: naked Japanese girls and lots of blood! Throw into the mix the deranged, depraved and deformed and you’re starting to get the picture. Borne of a lifelong obsession with the writings of Edogawa Rampo, Teruo Ishii ‘s swan song is a veritable circus of the insane.

PANIK HOUSE is proud to present BLIND BEAST VS. KILLER DWARF in the director’s final, approved edition – sparing none of its macabre sex or over-the-top violence!

Screwed (1998, Japan)

“Asano is something of a director’s fantasy; he can look tough and threatening or sensitive and delicate in equal measure.” - Initerview

What do you get when you bring together the King of Cult Movie Directors, the King of Underground Comic Books and the King of Independent Cinema? You get SCREWED! Long considered the primary force in the cinema of transgression, Director Teruo Ishii serves up a fever dream of psychedelic sexuality and hyperbolic insanity that could only come from the mind of Japanese Manga God Yoshiharu Tsuge. Tadanobu Asano (Ichi The Killer) stars in this sexy, bizarre, and hypnotic adaptation of Neji-shiki (Wind-Up Type) that helped establish his position in the firmament of Asian and global cinema.

PANIK HOUSE is proud to present SCREWED in a newly restored edition of the unedited director’s cut. You have been warned!

Oh, and do we really need to tell you that both DVDs are jam-packed with extras? It's Panik House, dammit! Click the covers and links to see the specs.

Salvation comes to your TV!

Nope, I'm not talking about them damn televangelists. In fact, I'm sure they wouldn't even approve the newly created SALVATIONTV.COM, a new Internet Broadband Channel full of some of the finest examples of Euro sleaze horror ever, made including Jean Rollin's classic Requiem for a Vampire, Sacred Flesh, Nude for Satan and the amazing Italian Satanic epic Black Magic Rites. All accompanied by newly created programming featuring members of the Satanic Sluts, vampyric lesbian blood orgies, nympho, devil worshipping nuns, gas-masked eroticism, Nazi psycho-death-sex-cruelty-loving she-bitches... in our usual mixture of family fare and high morals!

Broadcasting 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and updated every month, SALVATIONTV.COM is full to overflowing with blood, blasphemy and breasts... along with the occasional feature on beard grooming techniques among the Taliban.

At just £10 per month (or your currency equivalent) it's cheaper than crack or coke, more fun than self harming, more hygienic than rimming your local priest and less messy than group sex! In fact it's only slightly less pleasurable than consuming vast amounts of cookies dipped in chocolate spread while watching famine documentaries and masturbating... To subscribe simply focus all of your remaining brain cells on getting your fingers to type SALVATIONTV.COM into the address bar above and wait for a visual and audio onslaught!!


Bloody kisses and inappropriate fondling,

Big news for you Dust Devil fans out there.

Wendy leaves her husband, taking off into the voids of Africa. She picks up a hitchhiker, a traveling serial killer who snaps photos of his victims before killing them. Wendy does not realize the danger she is in until a police detective arrives to warn her that her "companion" is something much worse than just a killer-he is a shape-shifting demon who steals his victims' souls.

"I have just seen the new Hi Def 16×9 transfer of Dust Devil: The Final Cut and it is simply stunning. Not a mark or scratch anywhere. The film has such an amazing depth of field that the new sparkling colors image quality create an almost a 3-D like impression. Even the colorist at the lab could not believe the transfer.

The DVD set is going to be limited to one pressing only, 10,000 pieces and then it is gone. Period, no more.

The final disc set will include the following:

Disc One:

neo-Nazi movement.

Richard Stanley Production diaries on the Making of The Secret Glory

The entire package is a ridiculously low retail price of $29.95 and streets
September 26, 2006.

So there you go... If you pride yourself as a true Dust Devil fan - and what Hardware fan out there is not? - it's obvious that this Dust Devil: The Final Cut will be the edition to buy.

Now it's just a matter of holding your breath until September...

He drills and kills through sex charged teens, a lost rock band, and pretty much anyone else in his way. His puppet masters have a bigger plan for him, his mission is to end the human race. DRILLER is inspired by Italian splatter films, 1980s slasher, and 1950s creature feature sci-fi freakout.

DRILLER is a Sci-fi Horror feature film written & directed by Jason Kartalian, starring Horror vixen Tanya Dempsey, and featuring breathtaking creature effects by Joe Castro.

This independently made film has both urban and rural settings. It boasts some highly impressive CGI effects, large scale interior alien spaceship sequences and all sorts of creepy aliens and monsters. The feature film has also inspired the creation of a graphic novel.
