ACTORS NEEDED FOR STRANGELAND: DISCIPLE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

DEE SNIDER'S STRANGELAND: DISCIPLE MOVIE PUTS OUT NATIONAL OPEN CASTING CALL

Horror Movie, Set To Begin Production Later This Year, Set In The World Of Body Modification

New York, NY (January 29, 2009) - Dee Snider, frontman of heavy metal legends Twisted Sister, is set to begin production on the feature film Strangeland: Disciple later this year, the much-anticipated follow-up to Strangeland (1998), which he wrote and starred in as antagonist Captain Howdy.

His partners in the project, Nehst Studios, have put out an open casting call through http://www.screentest.biz to be a part of the film starring Snider and Robert Englund (Freddie Kruger of the Nightmare On Elm Street series).

"We are conducting a national casting call to find actors and extras to be in the film with Dee," explains Nehst head Larry Meistrich. "This is the best way for people to audition. The goal of this talent search is to give aspiring actors access to participate and work on a really high-profile project."

"It's like a national outreach project," explains Snider. "We will be looking for talent in the body modification and fetish world. Everywhere I go now, every guy and girl with tattoos and big holes in their ears wants to be in my movie!"

Parts of Strangeland: Disciple will take place in a secret society whose inhabitants party hard and strange at an aptly-named dungeon called The Torture Garden. "It's a hardcore body modification and fetish scene, filled with all kinds of freaks," Snider says of the venue. We're shooting for an NC-17 rating right out of the box. I want enthusiasts from all over the country to be a part of it!

(New York, NY) - BURNING HUMAN has signed a deal with KOCH Records to release their debut album Resurrection Through Fire. The album will be released on April 21st, 2009.
