How Bad/Good is it? This independently produced film about an amiable banker whose friends betray him one by one has been called "the Citizen Kane of bad movies" by some critics. Though the film's star, writer, producer, and director Tommy Wiseau, has claimed it is a black comedy (and thus the film's numerous flaws are intentional), other actors involved in the production have denied this, saying that Wiseau intended it to be a melodramatic romance.The Room has been noted for its bizarre and out-of-place lines, protracted sex scenes, various subplots that are inadequately resolved or simply disappear altogether (most notably, a character announces that she has breast cancer, but this is never mentioned again), nonsensical exterior shots (one scene features three establishing shots during its duration), and infamous use of green-screen for "outdoor" rooftop scenes. It has gained a cult status, and regularly sells out midnight viewings at theaters in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and Australia. It made its broadcast premiere as an April Fools' Day special in 2009 on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim block, edited down from its original R rating to a TV-14/DSLV rating. The day after its appearance, its DVD became the top-selling independent film on Amazon.com. It has garnered a cult following similar to The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and in June 2010, The Room started playing at the American Film Institute.Mystery Science Theater 3000 alumni Michael J. Nelson, Kevin Murphy, and Bill Corbett produced an audio commentary track to accompany the movie through their site RiffTrax.com.
How Bad/Good is this movie?Notable in part for not featuring any trolls (the antagonists are goblins from the town of Nilbog — which is goblin spelled backwards), the film also has no relation to the original Troll, which was also critically panned. Not only one of the "least scary horror movies ever", according to Yahoo! Movies, but "by pretty much any measure... one of the worst films ever made". Director Claudio Fragasso (who used the pseudonym Drake Floyd for his work on the film) has maintained for twenty years that the film is a "masterpiece". Despite the script being written in awkward language (Fragasso and his wife Rosella Drudi, native Italians, spoke virtually no English when they wrote the script), Fragasso insisted the American actors deliver the lines as written. The goblins in the movie are dwarfs wearing burlap sacks and latex masks. Campy acting, confusing plot twists and unintentional homosexual innuendos have contributed to give the movie a cult status comparable to The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Nearly twenty years after its release, the movie's child star, Michael Stephenson, made a documentary about the film titled Best Worst Movie, released to critical success in 2009.
