When a drifter befriends a quirky mortician, an unlikely business partnership is formed. Paranoia soon develops, however, and both men are forced to come to terms with the fragility of friendship and loyalty.
Johnny is a successful banker who lives happily in a San Francisco townhouse with his fiancée, Lisa. One day, inexplicably, she gets bored with him and decides to seduce his best friend, Mark. From there, nothing will be the same again.
It's 25 years later, and police detective Frank Washington is forced to team up again with his long estranged partner Joe Marshall to investigate a series of assassinations, in a case with ingredients they could never have imagined.
When a drifter (Sestero) is taken in by a peculiar mortician (Wiseau), the two hatch an underground enterprise off the back of the mortician's old habits. But greed, hatred, and jealousy soon come in turn, and their efforts unravel, causing the drifter to run off with the spoils and leaving the mortician adrift.
Director Justin MacGregor is a friend of Greg Sestero's. He saw The Room (2003) for the first time when he was 16 years old. Coincidentally, he and Greg met at the Rio Theatre in Vancouver, Canada - the same theatre where Greg and James Franco met for the first time and agreed to turn Greg's memoir into The Disaster Artist (2017).

On a technical level it feels like a sophomore student film. It's really not well shot in many scenes. But I'm going to say this movie was competently insane. I'd go on but I know that I couldn't put a review for this experience into actual words. 9/10.
