(2005) Notorious for their ferocious live performances spanning over two decades, the Dwarves have rocked and offended audiences the world over.

(1978) (86Ms) Directed by Norman J. Warren. Starring: John Nolan, Carolyn Courage, James Aubrey, Sarah Keller.
Film producer James Garrick (Nolan) is holding the premier of his latest horror epic for his friends and colleagues in a pleasant little country estate just outside of London. Unfortunately what promises to be a night of fun and entertainment takes a dark turn. You see, Garrick has based his movie on an old, oft-told legend of a witch that was burnt at the stake in this very part of the country. Unfortunately it’s not a legend, but really happened and now the evil spirit of that witch is marking her return by possessing the movie’s young actress, Carol Tucker and wreaking her revenge on the ancestor of those who burned her – James Garrick (and his friends)!
((1977) That this DVD could have resurfaced all these years later and in reasonably good enough condition so as to be restored in all its beer-soaked, brazen glory is miraculous. We can thank Rod Swenson, the original director back then, and amongst those nostalgic contributors to this package placing a new perspective overall. Not only will Live at CBGB’s 1977 appeal to longtime Punk fans, this will unearth a whole new generation of followers that want to know “what the real deal was about.” Features 10 live songs and a post show interview. Dir. Ron Swenson. (45 Mins)
