However, this film came to me highly recomended by Mr. Waters, my main broheimus of 20 some years. This is the guy who willingly suffered through Manos The Hands of Fate when it 1st hit the airwaves, snuck into countless R films with me during our tweens, and suffered through too many other shit films to mention during the college years instead of working on our respective degrees. How could I say no?
So he sat me down and popped it in. He prefaced that it is best to watch this interview with director/star Tommy Wiseau before starting the film. He's a cross between a 600 year old vampire and a mildly retarded person who laughs at everything as part of an uncontrollable tic. The interview alone is fucking priceless. This guy is a gem. Re-dubbed voices, film jumps, preposerous logos, and inane questions galore. It seemed like a fake, like something Tim and Eric would do. But apparently it's all the real deal. Though I still feel in my gut like it's a big joke put on by some smart rich bastard with a bunch of start up money.
So, here's a slew of clips culled from the pits of YouTube so you too can bask in the garbage, but not have to lose a piece of your soul watching the whole thing. Though you do miss out on seeing the homeless street urchin kid character named Denny, the creepiest/best dude of the film. He should be the sole subject of the sequel: Denny's Rampage - A drug addled streetchild turned architect's dream of a vampire cruelty-free world.
This clip is super short and sums up the quality you can expect. It also features a bewildering array of emotions. Also, it features the super cool roof stairway that is really some plywood painted to look like concrete and has no stairs and doesn't go anywhere.
Here we see our Vampire hero getting some flowers for his evil potato faced girlfriend. All you need to know is, "You're my favorite customer."
In this lengthy romp, some brave soul compiled every instance of Tommy Wiseau's laugh, then his crazy downfall at the end of the film. He does this creepy little laugh all the time and it's quite ridiculous to boot. I've taken to imitating it. Help me.
