Heavy metal superstar Dee Snider wrote and stars in this dark suspense thriller about Captain Howdy, a sadomasochistic predator who surfs the internet looking for online victims.
From the Back Cover
The glow of the screen illuminates his heavily pierced, tattoo-stained face as his fingers dance nimbly across the keyboard searching, hunting. His computer handle is Captain Howdy, and he surfs the local chat rooms for young female prey. Girls like Genevieve and Tiana, who mysteriously vanish after an online conversation with the cunning cyber-predator. Detective Mike Gage has a personal stake in the case: Genevieve is his daughter. When Tiana's corpse - tortured, pierced and scarred - is discovered in the river, Gage realized that time is running out for Genevieve. Taking sadistic delight in Gage's desperation, Captain Howdy sends the detective a series of taunting e-mails, challenging him to a deadly online game of cat and mouse, and drawing him into his "modern primitive" world - a strange land of fetish bars, S&M, body modification and goth-rock. Heavy metal superstar Dee Snider, Elizabeth Pena and Robert Englund star in this dark suspense-thriller, in the tradition of Silence of the Lambs and Kiss the Girls.

Until he crosses the line by ending up kidnapping a cop's daughter. Now the cop is on a race against time to save his daughter from this sadistic man.
Will he save her in time? Will Capt. Howdy be truly rehabilitated in a later scene? Will Capt. Howdy find the answers in life and death through cathartic sadism and masochism in the search for a dark higher power? Does the cop survive the fight against Howdy?
Come in if you dare and watch the movie to find out! Also, check out an potential yet to be determined release of Strangeland 2. It's gonna get interesting if the movie will be released like they said they would.
The story and script obviously do NOT come from a twisted mind (as is too easy to say for those who don't like the film) but from the concerns of a father who sees terrifying things happening in the world around him. The film moved me enormously and made an enormous impact, in spite of the things I mentioned earlier. Or could it even be (partly) because of them....... The society today is full of illogical things happening, weird justice and the truth is so often a lot more rediculous than fiction, so in a way what could be seen as flaws could also be seen as wonderful metaphors (although i doubt this was the original idea).
After the film had ended I did what I NEVER did before: i IMMEDIATELY watched it again, now with Mr. Sniders commentary on. And much to my surprise this was so ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL!! Contrary to earlier reviews, I think Dee adds a lot of extra info and unfolds himself as a very intelligent guy widening his talents into other fields, being able to tell about it with enthousiasm (and a lot of humor I may add) and making me even more positive about the film than I already was. Also, he seems to be very pleased with himself, and that only adds to the fun!! The Rock Videos from the soundtrack album that are added as extras are not much to my taste, but the introductions by Dee Snider are so enjoying I actually had a lot of fun watching them (and carefully changed my mind, no matter how slightly, about this music genre).
Watch it, watch it again and then watch it with the commentary on. And try to keep an open mind. Too many four or five star hollywood films of directors and writers and stars that have 'made it' are full of rediculous flaws and illogicalities as well, but for some unknown reason they are accepted by critics and public alike. Strangeland has the added bonus of the fact that it comes from the heart and is made for all the right reasons instead of being taylored to as large an audience as possible.
I can hardly wait for Dee Snider's next work..
FYI - strong language, graphic violence, brief nudity.
