Filmmaker Andrew Horn has released a trailer for his documentary film, We Are Twisted Fucking Sister.
Speaking of the film, director Horn said: “Twisted were the Grand Funk of glam and the New York Dolls of metal – channeling youthful fury and a wicked sense of humour into blue-collar performance art, attracting audiences of up to 2-5000 a night. It was both a great living and a dead end, offering no future outside the suburban enclave.”
“If you think you know them from their hit songs, the MTV videos and massive stadium shows, this is the untold story of how they became that band. It’s about rock’n’roll and the business of rock’n’roll. It’s about perseverance and things blowing up in your face. It’s about finding yourself, finding your audience and doing literally anything, however wild, to connect with them. A mesmerising, story of a 10-year odyssey to overnight success.”
The film was made following a successful IndieGoGo crowdsource campaign in 2013, and Dee Snider, frontman of the band, seems very proud of the documentary. Speaking about its production, he said: “This is independently done, which is the way a documentary of this kind should be. It’s for people who are original fans, hardcore fans, true fans — or want to know more about this band.”
An official release date for the film is yet to be confirmed. In the meantime, you can watch the trailer below:
