It's a disturbing, hopeless, irredeemable series of images that will scar you if you wander into it unprepared.
This terrible horror film pretends to tell a moral about internet chat rooms, but really it's a cheap C grade slasher flick.
a little too messy for me
Snider's Captain Howdy is an appropriately scary creation, but the movie mostly lets him down.
After the agonizing torture that was endured I can safely make the statement that Strangeland is now and will be the worst film of 1998.
Perhaps if I hadn't expected it to be so bad I might have approved of it less.
Twisted Sister's Dee Snider makes a movie -- a must-see, right? Wrong-o!
Painful to endure even by modern primitive standards, it's a freaky, funless wreck, intolerable in the extreme.
The kind of movie where you want to take a bath after watching.
Entry into the realm of disappointing horror videos.
Strangeland which is written by Heavy Metal musician Dee Snider of Twisted Sister fame. This is an underrated film that has a unique concept. Although Snider's ideas are a bit rough, there are still plenty of good things going for the film. The acting is fairly decent, never anything good but definitely not as bad as what many critics have said. Snider's character is eccentric, bizarre and psychotic who says stuff that really doesn't make any sense. In a way that's what makes him appealing. The film has a dark, moody, melancholic atmosphere which adds to the tone of story. Although not perfect, I felt that Strangeland wasn't as bad as what every critic has said. There's an inventive plot in its somewhat sketchy script, and it works well enough for its 90 minute run time. There's nothing truly remarkable about this one, except if you're looking for an underrated B movie, then check this film out. I was very much surprised and I really didn't think it was that bad. In fact, it was pretty good. There are some very interesting ideas at work here, but the script clearly suffers from being underdeveloped. If Dee Snider would have spent time rewriting a second draft, then maybe we would have had something very memorable on our hands. However, I still enjoyed the film, even though the plot was imperfect, and the cast were so-so. The film does possess something worth mentioning, Dee Snider as the villain. That made this
worth seeing. Strangeland isn't a bad film, but considering the concept, it makes you wonder how much potential this flick really had.
So much flesh, so little time.
Dee Snider tortures teens (with needles, not by playing them cuts from the Twisted Sister reunion album). A shallow peek at modern primitive culture can't save this incompetent, rote shocker.
