Did You Know?

After Capt. Howdy is captured and you see the newspaper clippings of the case, Dee Snider wrote all the clippings as spoken in the commentary track. His reason is "for all you DVD nuts out there who'd pause and read them for continuity".See more »
Continuity: When Gage is IMing with CaptHowdy from his car, his fingers are shown typing G A G E in one shot and K O I in another. These letter combinations do not appear in the IM he sends.See more »

The worst horror movie of the year, 21 March 1999
Author: Devin Geoffrey Soper from waterville, ohio

Next to Milo and The Killer Eye, Strangeland was the worst movie of the year. Dee Snider wrote the script to this boring, dull horror with bad acting and a slow pace. Nothing interesting happens here and the movie looks like it was actually TWO movies condensed together. The first half could've been shorter...waaaaay shorter. And the second half could have been more longer and stronger. This film is utterly obscure, limited, wandering and absolutely pointless. Whoever had to like it is probably a sadomasochistic person who has nothing better to do than watch this junk. It's even more insane when the filmmakers are actually planning a sequel...they are seriously.
