Emaji Entertainment to reboot Dee Snider’s StrangeLand and The Howling

Last Updated on August 2, 2021


Another movie we can add to the ever growing list of remakes is none other than Dee Snider’s 1998 horror film STRANGELAND, which was written by and starred Snider, the frontman of heavy metal giant Twisted Sister.

Dee Snider’s portrayal of Carlton Hendricks aka Captain Howdy in the original film created a character that has become a cult horror legend. Emaji Entertainment will accompany the singer-songwriter, screenwriter, radio personality and actor back into the dark underground world of ritualistic body modification where victims are lured via an ever pervasive world of social media.

"Music was intrinsic to me in the first one," said Snider. "We really tried to create the ultimate heavy soundtrack. Music will be important to me again for this film." The project has the working title STRANGELAND: DISCIPLE and is the second film production announced by the company based on a well established horror property.

Emaji Entertainment also acquired the rights to reboot Joe Dante's THE HOWLING, the 1981 horror classic that to date has seen eight films released that have been based in part of the three novels written by Gary Brander. They plans to produce THE HOWLING as the first in a series of films based upon well known film properties. Additional details on the production and distribution of THE HOWLING will be released as the film moves through the pre-production process.

That's all the info we're seeing for these films right now, so hang in there for any additional details!
