The Room

A really bad movie, or the greatest comedy ever made? Nobody knows. Conflicting stories between cast & crew mention that it’s either a real black comedy, or a failed drama. All I know is that this movie is ridiculously stupid, and it makes it hilarious as well. It’s a typical romantic triangle about Scandinavian-sounding Johnny, his evil bitch girlfriend Lisa and best friend Mark. Mark and Lisa have an affair, and Johnny doesn’t take it too well.

Like I said, I don’t know what to say about this, it’s either hilarious or just bad. It mostly takes place in a living room, there are like six sex scenes, are ridiculously boring and featuring clichéd bad music, and side characters and subplots appear and disappear without explanation. But the most hilarious part about the movie is Johnny himself. See, his voice is dubbed, and every line delivery is hilarious. Lines like “you’re tearing me apart” are given melodramatic delivery that would make Charlton Heston blush. The best part has to be when Johnny has his mental breakdown, and screams “Nooooo” and twists in his bed while thinking about his girlfriend and best friend having sex.

This movie has already achieved cult status, being celebrated as the best worst horror movie ever made. I believe that title should go to El Baron Del Terror, but this is pretty close. Watch it and be prepared.
