Dee Snider Exhuming ‘Strangeland’ Movie
Twisted Sister vocalist and 'House of Hair' DJ Dee Snider recently updated fans about 'Strangeland.' The original film, which Snider wrote and starred in, playing a creepy serial killer dubbed Captain Howdy, was released in 1998. 'Strangeland II: Disciple' has been languishing in development, but it's now in the works, as the star is exhuming the long-dormant franchise with original 'Nightmare on Elm Street' star Robert Englund returning to star.
Snider said, "'Strangeland Disciple,' after 12 years of waiting, due to multiple legal issues, is finally coming together. I am of course returning as Captain Howdy in a very stressed state. Robert Englund is returning. We're going into production. We're filming in Cleveland." While Lebron James may have taken the first train out of the city, Snider and crew are setting up shop.
Fans can also appear in the film as extras. "We're actually having an open casting call for extras," Snider revealed. "We're looking for all kinds of people, every shape and size, for some of the big scenes in this movie."
