As previously posted, a TWISTED SISTER documentary entitled We Are Twisted F*cking Sister is currently in the works at the hands of one Andrew Horn. The film is being financed through a crowdfunding effort via IndieGoGo.com (found here). Frontman Dee Snider has posted a personal message to the diehard Twisted Sister fans in support of Horn’s efforts:
Horn has posted a test clip from the production online:
“Twisted’s greatest strength is arguably their direct engagement with their audiences. One of the ways they did this was to bring the crowd into the song through call and response and creating exciting imagery through the telling of a story. Here is a prime example of Twisted conjuring up hot nights, the company of friends and bombing down the highway in your car. If the picture they paint includes the then prerequisite pot and beer, it ends with the most important element – the music. And, if you will, the ecstacy of being young. The musical question that Dee asks is, ‘Do you know what boogie means?’ but what sticks with me is Jay at the end warning us that if we don’t join in, we will be doomed to look back in our dotage and regretfully ask, ‘Why didn’t I party with Twisted Sister…?!’ This clip was just a test, and was not stylistically appropriate for the movie, but definitely something not to be missed on the DVD!”
As recently posted, film maker Andrew Horn is making a documentary about the legendary TWISTED SISTER, entitled “We Are Twisted F*cking Sister.”
Today’s update has been posted on the official Twisted Sister – The Movie Facebook page:

TWISTED SISTER will announce two more dates in South America. The next announcement will be on February 11th and another show will be announced on the 20th. All dates in South America will take place in April. More details will be revealed soon.
German filmmaker Andrew Horn recently announced via the TWISTED SISTER In The Clubs Facebook page that he is in the last stages of finishing a movie about TWISTED SISTER in the clubs. It begins with them in their earliest incarnation as a glam cover band in NJ and ends with them signing their deal with Atlantic at the end of ’82 after their legendary appearance on The Tube in the UK.
It includes many performances in the clubs from that time and a lot of their legendary schtick such as “The Sweet Jane drink till you vomit gong show”, the destruction of Hammerheads and, of course, Disco Sucks (and all that that implies).
Further details as they surface.
