Twisted Sister singer Dee Snider is working on a new horror movie and it enters pre-production this June. The Twisted Sister singer is not only directing this horror movie, but he also wrote it.

Dee Snider recently took to his Twitter account to share news of this film moving into pre-production. Per Snider’s tweet:

“Wanna talk about a major distraction? My next scary movie (I wrote & I’m directing) is green lit & starts pre-production in 4 weeks! In between I’ve got 3 week pre-planned vacation (two years ago before covid, cancelled twice). When I get home I leave next day! Yes/Yikes!”

Prior to this movie, Dee Snider had worked on the cult horror movie classic Strangeland; Strangeland was released in 1998, with Snider both having written the movie and starring in it. Per the film’s IMDb page, the premise for Strangeland is as follows:

“A detective pursues a sadist specializing in body modification rituals who lures teenagers through the internet.”

In a past conversation the Twisted Sister singer had with that of Bloody Disgusting, he shared, “I’ve currently got a movie called My Enemy’s Enemy that is in development with the people who produced the Halloween films, Malek Akkad, and I’m going to be directing that in the spring.”

It’s cool to see rockers shifting creative gears and taking their talents into other forms of entertainment. Dee Snider isn’t the only rocker to make his way into the world of cinema of course; you have the likes of Rob Zombie, who has been working in movies for years (with his version of the Munsters currently in production).

You also have the likes of Slipknot singer Corey Taylor and Lamb of God singer Randy Blythe who have done some acting work. Not to mention that Cradle of Filth singer Dani Filth recently talked about wanting to make another movie as well.

Are you excited for a new horror movie from Dee Snider?
