We Are Twisted F***ing Sister

Buy Tickets


Special Premiere Screening!

Co-presented by Vanyaland and The Voltage Factory on ‪Vanya Radio‬

(2014) dir Andrew Horn w/Twisted Sister [135 min; DCP]
When Twisted Sister got their big break in 1983, they became one of the biggest glam rock bands of the 1980s with their live shows drawing sell-out crowds and their music videos defining an early MTV. But the band that killed disco was no overnight success. WE ARE TWISTED F***CKING SISTER is the 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.

“Uproarious! A tale of excess, egotism and absurdity.” – Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent

NYT Critics Pick NYT Critics’ Pick! “A comprehensive and sometimes harrowing portrayal of the grind a working bar band in the 1970s had to endure to get by.” – Glenn Kenny, New York Times

“Dee Snyder is charming and the movie is crammed with great archival footage of the band, ranging from their early days as a David Bowie cover act to their jamming onstage with Lemmy Kilmister of Motorhead on British TV.” – Luca Cimarusti, Chicago Reader
