A pierced and tattooed sadist, Captain Howdy (Dee Snider), trolls the Internet for naive teens, luring them to his home to torture and defile them. When Howdy kidnaps and tortures the daughter of police Detective Mike Gage (Kevin Gage), he is caught. Deemed insane, he is sent to an asylum but is released soon after, seemingly better.

    Although Dee Snider played an excellent and suitable character for the movie, it wasn't as good or "scary" as I thought it would be. There were a few parts here and there that were frightening\disturbing, but they weren't good enough to save the films poor acting and dull directing.

    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.
