The five best Twisted Sister videos

"Strangeland" starring Twisted Sister's Dee Snider airs tonight at 8/7c

The thing with “Strangeland,”which we’re showing tonight at 8/7c, is that in many ways, it’s a cautionary tale warning of the dangers of online chatrooms. Sure nowadays everyone knows that any ten-year old girl in a chatroom is probably an undercover FBI agent waiting to play Catch the Predator and that if you accept the offer of a free at-home massage on Craig’s List you’re just begging to star in the next installment of a made for TV movie about serial killers, but back when the internet first started pumping through it’s pipes and tubes, people were innocent. That’s where “Strangeland” came in like the scariest afterschool special ever.

In the movie, teenagers Genevieve (Freaks & Geeks’ Linda Cardellini) and Tiana (Amat Rhoe) make some friends on the internet and soon are invited to attend a party hosted by someone who goes by the screen name “Captain Howdy.” Luckily none of you would fall for that, because being pop culturally savvy you would recognize “Captain Howdy” as the evil demon in “The Exorcist.” Unfortunately the girls haven’t watched nearly enough movies and naturally the “party” ends up being a trap to lure them into a world of torture and “body art” that would give pause to even Jigsaw of the “Saw” movies. Genevieve’s father, local cop Mike Gage (Kevin Gage), is soon on the case and tracks down the culprit, a severe schizophrenic named Carleton Hendricks (Dee Snider). However, Hendricks’ subsequent arrest and “rehabilitation” ends up being only the beginning of an even bigger nightmare, spurned on by the lynching tactics of the neighborhood’s most enraged father, Jackson Roth (Robert Englund a.k.a. Freddie Krueger). Snider, who stars as the friendly neighborhood psycho, also wrote the screenplay. But those in the know know that Dee Snider is the frontman for ’80s hair metal band Twisted Sister, and that’s all the excuse we need to get our hair metal on.

Here are the five best Twisted Sister videos with special appearances by Bobcat Goldthwait and Peewee Herman:

5. “Leader of the Pack”
