Fan-filmed video footage of TWISTED SISTER's August 10 performance at the Heavy Montreal festival in Montreal, Quebec, Canada can be seen below.
"We Are Twisted F*cking Sister!", a movie about TWISTED SISTER's club days by German filmmaker Andrew Horn, in nearing completion.
Horn took to the crowdfunding site Indiegogo last year to help raise the $150,000 he has projected it will take for the film to receive a full release.
In a videotaped message posted at Horn's YouTube channel, TWISTED SISTER frontman Dee Snider said Horn got at the heart of the band's "'Rocky'-esque story of a band of brothers from the New York area who toughed it out for nearly a decade before finding fame and fortune." The singer went on to describe the end result as "for people who are original fans, hardcore fans, true fans — or want to know more about this band."
He added: "This is independently done, which is the way a documentary of this kind should be [and not like other rock documentaries where the] band puts together … a piece of propaganda to make [themselves] look good."
TWISTED SISTER, which reunited in 2001, performs about 12 shows a year, including festivals around the world, holiday-themed performances and occasional local concerts. It has released several live CDs and DVDs over the past decade but has no intention of recording new material.
"We don't tour regularly and I don't see any reason to [make a new record]," guitarist Jay Jay French told NorthJersey.com. "If I told you we were going to play new songs and take some classics out of the set, you'd kill me."
