frontman announces casting call for “every guy and girl with tattoos and big
holes in their ears”; NC-17 horror movie, set to begin production later this
year, will be set in the world of body modification.

Dee Snider, frontman of heavy metal legends Twisted Sister,
is set to begin production on the feature film Strangeland: Disciple later this year, the
much-anticipated follow-up to Strangeland (1998), which he wrote and
starred in as antagonist Captain Howdy.
His partners in the project, Nehst Studios, have put out an
open casting call through http://www.screentest.biz to be
a part of the film starring Snider and Robert Englund (Freddie Kruger of the Nightmare
On Elm Street series).
“We are conducting a national casting call to find actors
and extras to be in the film with Dee,” explains
Nehst head Larry Meistrich. “This is the best way for people to audition. The
goal of this talent search is to give aspiring actors access to participate and
work on a really high-profile project.”
“It’s like a national outreach project,” explains Snider.
“We will be looking for talent in the body modification and fetish world.
Everywhere I go now, every guy and girl with tattoos and big holes in their
ears wants to be in my movie!”
Parts of Strangeland: Disciple will take place in a
secret society whose inhabitants party hard and strange at an aptly-named
dungeon called The Torture Garden. “It’s a hardcore body modification and
fetish scene, filled with all kinds of freaks,” Snider says of the venue.
“We’re shooting for an NC-17 rating right out of the box. I want enthusiasts
from all over the country to be a part of it!”
