Dee Snider Is Ready For Your Close-Up

Jan 29th, 2009 // 4 Comments

In a move that absolutely everyone has always wanted, work has begun on a sequel to the AFI Top 100 movie (I think) Dee Snider‘s Strangeland. It’s titled Strangeland: Disciple. Snider, who you may remember as the Bartender in 2005′s Deepwater, is casting right now, and he’s returning in his role as Captain Howdy/Carleton Hendricks. V‘s Robert Englund’s on board, and there’s a wealth of roles available for you aspiring actors. After the jump, find out if nudity is required for your big break!



First, here is a synopsis, in ALL CAPS BECAUSE IT’S SO RAD:

ONE YEAR AFTER CARLETON HENDRICKS AKA CAPTAIN HOWDY’S (DEE SNIDER) SADISTIC RAMPAGE, MUCH MORE THAN THE PHYSICAL SCARS THE SCHIZOPHRENIC, SEXUAL SADIST GAVE HIS VICTIMS ARE LEFT BEHIND. THEIR LIVES, DESTROYED BY EMOTIONAL TORMENT AND THE MEDIA FRENZY SURROUNDING THE CRIMES, DETECTIVE MIKE GAGE, HIS DAUGHTER GENEVIEVE AND VIGILANTE JACKSON ROTH (ROBERT ENGLUND) EACH HAVE THEIR CROSSES TO BEAR. BUT WHEN THE BADLY BURNED AND MENTALLY BROKEN CARLTON HENDRICKS IS TAKEN FROM A STATE RUN MENTAL HOSPITAL AND OFF HIS MEDICATION BY BILLIONAIRE, MEDIA MOGUL, MORGAN LAFORCE, LEADER OF A BODY MODIFICATION/FETISH HAVEN CALLED “THE TORTURE GARDEN”, THE DOOR SWINGS WIDE OPEN FOR EACH OF CAPTAIN HOWDY’S VICTIMS TO FIND CLOSURE…AND RETRIBUTION.

That doesn’t sound convoluted and terrible at all!

And now, the roles:

NURSE VERA
Female, 50-60, Any Ethnicity
WEARY.

Wait, is “weary” a character trait? These characters are deep! I can almost see Nurse Vera, 50-60, any ethnicity in my mind’s eye! But no nudity? For shame!

INFANT CARLETON HENDRICKS
Male, 1-1, Caucasian
INVOLVES CRYING AND SIMULATED SADISM ON SCREEN (A PROSTHETIC DOUBLE WILL BE USED FOR CLOSE UPS).

Huh.

JIMMY THE ORDERLY
Male, 30-40, Any Ethnicity
RAIL THIN. MENTAL HOSPITAL ORDERLY, HYPER AND TWITCHY, SEEMS LIKE HE COULD BE A PATIENT. HARBORS SECRET ANIMOSITY TOWARD CARLETON HENDRICKS. SOME NUDITY.

Now that’s more like it.

NEWSCASTER
Any Gender, 20-60, Any Ethnicity
TALKING HEAD.

This might be Jerry Harrison‘s big shot!

TONY “THE GYM GUY”
Male, 40-60, Any Ethnicity
OUT OF SHAPE. ONE OF THOSE GUYS WHO GOES TO THE GYM REGULARLY, WEARING DESIGNER TRACK SUITS AND GOLD JEWELRY, BUT JUST GOES THROUGH THE MOTIONS OF WORKING OUT.

Man, this is so me. I don’t know how many times my giant jewel-encrusted peace symbol pendant has been caught in the elliptical machine.

HEATHER
Female, 18-24, Any Ethnicity
FIT, ATTRACTIVE. CHEER LEADER,PREPPY, SOME NUDITY. Teenage looking.

TIFFANY
Female, 18-24, Any Ethnicity
FIT, ATTRACTIVE. CHEER LEADER,PREPPY, SOME NUDITY. Teenage looking.

Hubba hubba! I don’t know that I’ve ever seen a cheerleader in a horror movie!

SK8GOD217
Male, 18-22, Any Ethnicity, 50 slots
Teenager. PUNK/SKATER TYPE, SOME NUDITY

So well-defined. So non-stereotypical.

“BEE”
Any Gender, 30-40, Any Ethnicity
TATTOO ARTIST. TATTOOED

You don’t say!

VICTIMS EXTRAS Extra
Any Gender, 18-29, Any Ethnicity
SOME NUDITY

This is a role I can get “behind.” Haha.

    The original was so unbelievably godawful that I was honestly shocked when I found out that it had a following of fans.

    Sadly, this is the most press the movie will receive.

    @so1omon: Are you kidding me? The first one was amazing…okay, I can’t fake it. It was awful.
