The sequel takes place in an underground society where freaks party their lives away in a place called The Torture Garden. Captain Howdy is still very much alive, as is his nemesis Jackson Roth, who will again be played by Robert Englund. “I came up with a convincing way to bring Captain Howdy back that’s not a cheat,” Snider told the mag. ”His new look—multiple burns, mismatched tattooed flesh from skin grafts—is totally horrific. Since the original Strangeland came out and inspired the likes of Saw and the whole torture porn craze, I really have to up the ante.”
Best of all, Snider’s partners in the project, Nehst Studios, have put out an open casting call through www.screentest.biz to fill out roles in the film, which will again co-star Robert Englund as Howdy nemesis Jackson Roth. “We are conducting a national casting call to find actors and extras to be in the film with Dee,” explains Nehst chief Larry Meistrich, whose previous company The Shooting Gallery produced Strangeland in 1998. “This is the best way for people to audition.
“…I had a deal for an extended DVD release of the first Strangeland with Lionsgate, and then the frigging director who fucked it up the first time wielded his Director’s Guild right to first re-edit. We wanted to do an extended DVD and call it the Dee-rector’s cut, but I won’t let the guy near it”
