They were the Grand Funk of Glam and the NY Dolls of Metal. Some considered Twisted Sister a joke, others called them the greatest bar band in the world. While microcosm of Punk/New Wave was taking over NYC in the mid 70s - early 80s, Twisted Sister was battling their way to the top of a vast suburban, cover-band bar scene that surrounded NYC in a 100 mile radius, yet existed in a parallel universe.Written by
Prepare yourself for the greatest rock n' roll story you've never heard!
Unsuspecting movie-goers will be fascinated—Twisted Sister fans will be in absolute ecstasy. "We Are Twisted F*cking Sister!" is more than a simple story about a bar band clawing their way to the top. It is a documentary about the true and motivational story of 80's heavy metal sensation, Twisted Sister, a group of musicians who never gave up, never gave in, and never took any crap from anyone, anywhere, at anytime. An incredible tale that will inspire artists everywhere to never give up on their dreams. Even if you've never heard of Twisted Sister, you will be entertained and engaged as Andrew Horn's documentary takes you on a mesmerizing journey back into rock n' roll clubs in the 1970's before they were famous.
Unlike many other "rockumentaries," this one is the work of an independent film maker, who gives us not only the perspective from the band, but a view from the fans, the families, the managers and the club owners and even the record executives. Unlike the glossy and packaged Twisted Sister of the mid-80's, Horn's film dares to bring us into the dark, loud and raw world of the tri-state bar scene. We get to see rare footage of Twisted Sister as we were meant to experience them—shocking, outrageous and gritty.
Whether you loved them or hated them, "We Are Twisted F*cking Sister!" will inspire you with an incredible story of perseverance, coupled with the beautiful love story of lead singer Dee Snider and his wife Suzette. If you like Twisted Sister, you will absolutely love this movie. And if you didn't like Twisted Sister before, prepare yourself to become a fan! (rated a 9/10 because I wanted more music!)
