Though this film has been out for fourteen years now, I had only heard of it a couple years ago. It was described to me as “legendary” and many reviews described it as being the “worst film ever made.” Being a fan of independent, B films and critically-panned movies I decided I had to check it out and throw in my two cents as well, as we’re coming upon the release of The Disaster Artist, a film that is about the making of The Room.
