I can’t believe it’s finally happening. Say what you will about Dee Snider’s odd Strangeland, but I really, really, realllly enjoy the movie on DVD. So to say I’m excited for a sequel is an understatement, although odds are I’ll be disappointed. With rumors of a March shoot hitting the web last week, now there’s actual casting calls for Strangeland II: Disciple, which begins lensing May 21 is Louisiana. The best part of the call is that it features a plot synopsis, along with all of the roles and the reveal that both Dee Snider and Robert Englund said to be returning as Captain Howdy and Jackson Roth, respectively.
“One year after Carleton Hendricks aka Captain Howdy’s (Dee Snider) sadistic rampage, much more than the physical scars the schizophrenic, sexual sadist gave his victims are left behind. Their lives, destroyed by emotional torment and the media frenzy surrounding the crimes, Detective Mike Gage, his daughter Geneveve and vigilante Jackson Roth (Robert Englund) each have their crosses to bear. But when the badly burned and mentally broken Carlton Hendricks is taken from a state run mental hospital and off his medication by billionaire, media mogul, Morgan LaForce, leader of the body modification/fetish haven called “The Torture Garden”, the door swings wide open for each of Captain Howdy’s victims to find closure… and retribution.”
