"The House That Drips Blood On Alex" tells the tale of Alex (Wiseau) as he moves into a peculiar house that mysteriously drips blood on him – a situation that he finds puzzling, perplexing and disturbing. The 12-minute-long film features guest stars Joey Greco ("Cheaters") and iJustine (Justine Ezarik) and was directed by Brock LaBorde and Jared Richard of Studio 8. Wiseau, best known for his work as the director and star of the 2003 independent cult film, "The Room," has built a dedicated underground following among fans. "The Room" continues to be screened today in cities across the U.S.
"Everyone did an excellent job on the film and they're very dedicated people," said Wiseau, the film's star. "You have something people can relate to, can talk about and have fun with. The more people that laugh, the better!"
