I have yet to watch the cult classic movie The Room, but now I think I have to. I just watched The Room director/producer/writer Tommy Wiseau in Comedy Central’s Atom TV episode “The House That Drips Blood on Alex” and I can’t stop thinking, when did Weird Al, Christopher Walken and Yakov Smirnoff get together and spawn a baby? And why is that baby 58 years old? And why is there blood all over that baby?
“The House That Drips Blood on Alex” is a bizarre, absurd horror short produced by Studio 8 in conjunction with Atom.com. It stars Wiseau as a man named Alex who buys a house that drips blood on him. Like most homeowners, he does not go into the house before he purchases it. The episode also stars Cheaters host Joey Greco as an evil real estate agent (or maybe Greco was playing what a normal real estate agent seems like in his head and is actually evil), Justine Ezarik from iJustine, Brooke Brodack, Rory Windhorst, Arlando Smith, Chris Trew and Brock LaBorde. The episode aired this morning at 12:00 am PT on Comedy Central’s late night show Atom TV.
The plan is to pitch the show as a series similar to Tales From The Crypt, with Wiseau as the host. He’s so damn weird – his style: he recites his lines of dialogue like a model in her first acting job – that I am convinced people would watch anything he’s in.
