It’s a phenomenon. Wonder if Franco tells the essence? Rovi states: “The Disaster Artist details the incredible true story behind the making of The Room, a 2003 film that quickly became a cult hit due to its reputation as ‘the Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made'”.

THOUGH NO ONE realized it at the time, the summer of 2003 was an apex moment for Z-grade cinema. That June, Tommy Wiseau released his crackpot rom-dram-com The Room in Los Angeles, giving viewers their first taste of the writer-director-star’s penchant for hammy performances and nonsensical non sequitors (“I did not hit her! Oh, hai, Mark!”). Then, in August, came the long-delayed, semi-awaited DVD release of Troll 2, a forgotten 1990 horror film in which visibly un-goblin-like goblins feast upon visibly untrained actors (“They’re eating her! And then they’re going to eat me! Oh my Gooooooooooooooodddd!”).

“The Room,” for those who don’t know, is a cult film like no other. In their book, Sestero and Bissell describe the film as an act of “cinematic hubris,” made in 2003 for $6 million of Wiseau’s money.
