Tommy Wiseau's New Bad Movie

Image credit: 

Tommy Wiseau is best known (okay, only known) for his awful movie The Room; if you haven't seen it, check out Ransom Riggs's post The Remarkable Success of the Worst Movie Ever. The Room is generally considered "so bad it's good" because Wiseau is such an awful writer, actor, and director. Well, now he's back -- with a twelve-minute horror spoof called The House That Drips Blood on Alex. Guess what the plot is?

The new movie features Wiseau as "Alex" and he directs the thing, except this time it was written by Brock LaBorde, whose previous credits include Art Department Production Assistant on Growing Pains: Return of the Seavers and Production Assistant on such classics as The Dukes of Hazzard (the 2005 movie remake) and Failure to Launch. With this team, what could go wrong?

While this short doesn't rise to the level of weirdness achieved by The Room, it's worth a look for fans -- as IFC pointed out, it's clear that Wiseau is now in on the joke, but that doesn't make him any better at acting or directing. Note: this video includes mild swearing and some comic horror themes (dude's in a house that inexplicably leaks a blood-like liquid on him), but I'd say it's safe for work, assuming you've got headphones.

Sample line, regarding a quill pen: "I might as well be writing with a duck." Another line, regarding the blood: "Good luck dude, I hope it's not really blood."

Note: you'll have to watch the movie at Atom Films because their video-embedding code is horribly broken. But I can embed this ridiculous teaser trailer from YouTube:
