Twisted Sister Documentary Coming This Summer
(hennemusic) The Twisted Sister documentary, “We Are ******* Twisted Sister!”, has secured US distribution and will be released in August by Music Box Films. Directed by German filmmaker Andrew Horn, the film explores the club days of the Long Island, New York band.
The project premiered at the International Documentary Film Festival in Amsterdam last November and was screened at Goteborg Film Festival earlier this year.
“Andrew Horn has delivered a quintessential rock documentary,” says Music Box Films’ managing partner Ed Arentz. “It’s a film that obviously speaks to Twisted’s legion of fans, but will allow a whole new audience to experience the ’70s NYC suburban rock club scene in all its sweaty, grimy, glittery glory, and what it took to become its undisputed masters.”
While the microcosm of punk/new wave was being born in Manhattan, Twisted Sister was battling their way to the top of a working class, suburban, cover-band bar scene that surrounded NYC in a 100 mile radius, yet existed in a parallel universe.
