Twisted Sister film director seeks funds to complete project
The upcoming documentary film We Are Twisted F*cking Sister! is the story of Twisted Sister’s 10 years playing the bars prior to their breakout in 1983.
Director Andrew Horn has put together a crowdfunding campaign to raise money for completion. He’s calling on all Twisted fans, metal fans, rock fans – and/or anyone who’s just a fan of a great story told by a great cast of characters – to help support the film and get it out there.
Horn explains: “I first met Twisted Sister when I interviewed lead singer Dee Snider and guitarist Jay Jay French while researching my previous film, The Nomi Song. Jay Jay then appeared in the film describing the wild scene that erupted when Nomi, a German operatic counter-tenor and performance artist, was booked to open for Twisted Sister in a club in suburban New Jersey.
“After the film was completed, Jay Jay and I spent an afternoon with him filling my head with stories about Twisted’s own wild shows in the bars. Jay Jay’s description of what he called ‘bar band shtick’ – ie. the various ploys they used to engage their crowd in the bars – sounded to me like its own kind of performance art, just for a whole other type of crowd. This sounded interesting and the more I followed up on it the more I realized there was a real story there. And it became much bigger than I ever imagined.”
