We Are Twisted F***ing Sister! is the first official documentary featuring the legendary rock band, Twisted Sister. While the band is on their final tour, fans can watch the highly acclaimed film out now on DVD, Blu-ray, VOD and Netflix.
“I had no inkling that I would end up with a story of truly epic proportions, told with unexpected wit and some real smarts — a story about music, craziness, ambition and any number of wild catastrophes, with a bit of unknown rock ‘n roll history thrown in for good measure. And, believe it or not, a real human story with some real and valuable life lessons – which is not exactly what you’d expect from a bunch of guys dressed like big ugly hookers.”
— WE ARE TWISTED F***ING SISTER! filmmaker Andrew Horn.
In the mid-1970s, Twisted Sister claimed glitter rock for their own, cross-dressing their way to headlining every club within 100 miles of New York City, from New Jersey bowling alleys to Long Island beach bars. With gigs six nights a week, they were the most successful live bar band of suburban New York, selling out 5,000-seat shows fueled by their no-holds-barred stage presence and aggressive metal setlists. But by the early ‘80s, they found themselves balancing on a double-edged sword, hugely popular with local audiences but without a national following – or a record deal – to speak of.
When Twisted Sister finally got their big break in 1983, they’d go on to become one of the biggest glam rock bands of the decade, their over-the-top live shows drawing sell-out crowds and their music videos defining an early MTV network. To anyone who knew the hard-fought battle they’d won to get there, the band that killed disco was no overnight success. WE ARE TWISTED F***ING SISTER! is the mesmerizing, wickedly appealing and never-before-told story of the ten grueling years leading up to the band’s legendary career, recounted directly by the band themselves, their managers and their biggest fans.
