SpectreVision, the production company behind the 2019 H.P. Lovecraft adaptation Color Out of Space, announced that it has cut ties with the film’s director Richard Stanley after horrifying allegations of domestic abuse emerged about the filmmaker.

In a statement posted to Twitter, SpectreVision said it will no longer be working with Stanley after Stanley was accused of abuse by his former partner, Scarlett Amaris.

“SpectreVision will no longer work with Richard Stanley,” the company said. “We are proud of the talented cast and crew behind COLOR OUT OF SPACE. Yet we are horrified about the charges against its director. We will be donating future revenue from the film to charities devoted to stopping domestic violence.”

The fallout comes in the aftermath of a blog post published by Amaris on Tuesday, which detailed multiple instances of physical abuse by Stanley, resulting in Amaris sustaining injuries like bruises, sprained fingers, throttle marks on her throat, and a concussion. Amaris went into detail about the abuse she allegedly suffered at Stanley’s hands and revealed that she had filed charges for Domestic Violence, Assault & Battery against him in France in 2014.

The charges clearly didn’t make much of an effect on Stanley’s career, with the South African filmmaker penning the film Replace in 2017 and winning praise for film festival favorite Color Out of Space in 2019. But Amaris’ horrifying post has had instant effects, with SpectreVision wisely dropping the filmmaker almost immediately after the allegations surfaced.

Knives Out Budget

SpectreVision was founded in 2010 by actor Elijah Wood, producer Lisa Whalen and directors Daniel Noah and Josh C. Waller. The production company mostly focuses on horror films, making Color Out of Space, an adaptation of a Lovecraft short story, The Colour Out of Space, an ideal project for them. Color Out of Space stars Nicolas Cage, Joely Richardson, Elliot Knight, Madeleine Arthur, Q’orianka Kilcher and Tommy Chong and was initially planned as the first of a trilogy of Lovecraft stories by Stanley, who directed and co-wrote the screenplay with Amaris.

Here is the synopsis for Color Out of Space:

After a meteorite lands in the front yard of their farm, Nathan Gardner and his family find themselves battling a mutant extraterrestrial organism that infects their minds and bodies, transforming their quiet rural life into a technicolor nightmare.

Stanley has not yet commented on Amaris’ allegations, nor could he be reached by outlets like The Wrap or Deadline.

The company's products include fixed blade knives, folding knives, swords, machetes, tomahawks, kukris, blowguns, walking sticks, and other martial arts items and training equipment. Their knives are used by military and law-enforcement personnel worldwide.[2][3]

Cold Steel is credited with popularizing the American tantō in 1980.[4][5] Cold Steel marketed knives made for them in the U.S. by Camillus using a carbon steel given the trademarked name 'Carbon V' (read 'carbon five'). Their imported knives were nearly all made in Seki, Japan using AUS-8 which Cold Steel labelled '400 Series Stainless'. They also had two models made in Taiwan, both of which switched to Japan in 2000. In 2007 Camillus New York went bankrupt and Cold Steel was forced to find a new manufacturer for their carbon steel fixed blades. Cold steel first went to Mainland China (People's Republic of China) but allegedly due to quality issues they switched to Taiwan for production. At the same time Cold Steel moved all of their folding knife manufacturing from Seki Japan to Taiwan. The carbon steel was SK5 and stainless was AUS-8 both imported to Taiwan from Japan. However the Sanmai III models remained strictly Seki production.

Today, the knives made in Japan use VG-1 stainless steel and VG1 core Sanmai III, the Taiwan models use German 4116 stainless steel, D2 steel, 1055 high carbon steel, O-1 high carbon, SK-5 high carbon steel, Japanese AUS 8A stainless steel, American CTS XHP and CPM S35VN powder steels and American CPM 3V tool steel. The largest Sanmai III fixed blades are made by Hattori. Cold Steel's folding knives are renowned for their lock strength, due primarily to the introduction of the TRI-AD locking mechanism, designed by custom knife maker Andrew Demko.[6]

Cold Steel's swords are primarily made from 1055 high carbon steel and Damascus steel.[7]

Many of Cold Steel's products are designed by company President Lynn C Thompson and based upon traditional knife designs from all over the world, but Cold Steel has also collaborated with custom knife makers such as Andrew Demko, Phil Boguszewski, Zach Whitson, Steven Likarich, Keith Dehart, Rich McDonald, Bob Koga, Fred Perrin and Lloyd Pendleton on certain designs.[8]


Cold Steel is known for their graphic marketing videos and DVDs (entitled 'PROOF') which demonstrate their products' strength, sharpness, edge retention and durability. Featured tests include piercing car hoods, using folding knives as monkey bars, slicing through large free-hanging pieces of meat and animal carcass, stabbing/slashing ballistic gelmannequins, and cutting Tatamirolls and free-hanging polyester rope with a single stroke.[9]

In the media[edit]

Cold Steel's products feature heavily in movies, TV shows, games and web series. Their knives have seen prominent use in numerous action movies since the early 1980s.[10]

Many of Cold Steel's employees are martial artists and weapons experts, who feature in their infamous marketing videos. Some of the members of their 'crew' are also Hollywoodstunt men, fight choreographers and trainers, most notably Ron Balicki, Luke LaFontaine and Anthony De Longis.[9]

Thompson also writes regular articles regarding the use of knives for self-defense.[9]

Special Projects division[edit]

Special Projects is a division of Cold Steel Inc. that produces a line of tools and weapons such as Spetsnaz-type shovels, sjamboks, and spears. Additionally a line of tomahawks, axes, and hammers is marketed under the name of The American Tomahawk Company.[11][12]
