Dee Snider Still Wants to Make Strangeland 2

15 November 2016 4:43 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's been nearly 20 years since Twisted Sister front man Dee Snider made his acting and writing debut in 1998's Strangeland, which would go on to become a horror cult classic. In the years that followed, there has often been talk of a sequel, Strangeland 2, but it has never gotten off the ground. During a new interview, Dee Snider reveals that he still wants to make this follow-up, but he took the past year off to focus on his new album. Here's what he had to say below.

"I'm always trying to get Strangeland 2 going. I don't know what the hell it is with that thing! That whole experience could be a documentary in itself - 'The Making of Strangeland 2.' [laughs] What the f--k?! That is what it would be called, 'The Making of Strangeland 2: Wtf!' There are a lot of creative properties I am looking to explore. Like I said, »

After three years of snubs & misses, The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences finally got it right this season and awarded the über-talented Tatiana Maslany with her first Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series. The beloved Orphan Black star recently sat down with Fashion Magazine to chat about a handful of topics, including two of her upcoming film roles: Lucy in Two Lovers and a Bear, where she stars alongside Dane DeHaan (The Amazing Spider-Man 2), and then Erin Hurley in the David Gordon Green-directed Boston Marathon movie Stronger, where she'll be seen opposite Academy Award-nominee Jake Gyllenhaal (Nocturnal Animals).

Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare – Zombies In Spaceland Hands-On Preview

3 September 2016 2:53 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Now this is more my style… well, sort of, anyway. As I explained in my preview of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s main multiplayer mode, out of the few experiences I’ve actually had with the series, many of them came from (badly) playing the Zombie mode with friends on World at War almost a decade ago. As terrible as I was, the concept of zombie survival was at least somewhat more novel for video games in 2008 — and so returning to it after this much time, I wondered what evolutions we’d see when full games in the genre are basically a dime a dozen on mobile app stores and Steam.

Infinite Warfare’s take, called Zombies in Spaceland, wants to draw players in with the much-loved “cheesy ’80s aesthetic,” and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t roll my eyes a few times when I »

Criss Angel Updates Fans on His Son's Battle With Cancer: "I Want Him to Live a Long, Happy, Fruitful Life''

24 August 2016 6:48 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Criss Angel is the first to admit that his toddler's battle with cancer has been "life changing." Yes, he's worked with children battling different health ailments for decades. But when his son with girlfriend Shaunyl Benson was diagnosed in 2015, his outlook on the world around him completely altered. "When you have a child that has this horrendous disease, you can relate to the families from a different perspective," he shared with E! News exclusively. "So Shaunyl and I made the decision to use this in a positive way. You know, this is so much bigger than me." This summer, the Las Vegas performer released a music video with Dee Snider titled "We're Not Gonna »

Rockers Hold Their Noses to Perform Outside Gop Convention in Cleveland

20 July 2016 4:40 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

They were in Cleveland - but defiantly not #RNCinCLE. When it comes to booking the big showbiz entertainment Donald Trump promised for jazzing up his Republican National Convention, Third Eye Blind and Rick Springfield want to be very clear that they are not it. "We performed at a benefit for Musicians on Call because we support their mission in bringing music to the bedsides of patients in hospitals," Third Blind Eye's Stephan Jenkins wrote on Facebook. "We did not play a Republican National Convention event." He added, "Given that the benefit was held in Cleveland, we suspected that convention types »

Review: It's a nice day for a 'Person of Interest' wedding

24 May 2016 7:45 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A quick review of last night's Person of Interest coming up just as soon as I have a bit of liquid courage... Where the Number of the Week story from "Truth Be Told" felt like too much of a throwback to less urgent days for the series, more recent episodes have done a better job of integrating the Number stories into the larger war against Samaritan. "Shotseeker" (which I didn't review) demonstrated how law-enforcement's increasing reliance on technology makes it an easy target for Samaritan, while last night's "A More Perfect Union" juggled a traditional Number story with a pair of Samaritan-driven subplots, with Greer trying to convince Shaw to switch sides(*) and Fusco's ignorance of all things Machine/Samaritan finally getting him into big trouble with the tunnel explosion. (*) I know Shaw's in the position she's in because Sarah Shahi needed to leave the show as a full-time job, »

9 Reasons Rock And Roll Is Dead (And Never Coming Back)

1 March 2016 12:39 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

According to pioneering “rock star” Gene Simmons, there is no future for rock and roll. The genre has already met its untimely end, and there’s nothing we can do to save it.

Now, normally when old blowhards like Simmons start talking about the abysmal state of rock and roll, it’s easy to just shrug it off as the uninformed ramblings of an out-of-touch curmudgeon. But, shockingly, it may be more than just a bunch of hot air.

Because despite what other rock legends like Dee Snider and Dave Grohl offer as counterpoints (namely, we’re still making music…jag-off), it really does appear that rock and roll as we once knew it… is over.

But, that old, oft-repeated phrase “Rock and roll is dead” probably doesn’t mean the same thing the Kiss bassist thinks it does. It doesn’t mean modern music is rubbish, or »
