DAY 28: The Most Obscure Film You’ve Ever Seen – Zyzzyx Rd (John Penney, 2006)

I know, I know. You were all thinking WTF. What the hell did I take to watch this film. Truth is, I don’t even think you know this film exists, and I can’t blame you. It stars then struggling actress Katherine Heigl, and by looking at the poster, you’ll know this ain’t good. That’s a fact though. This was cheap Z-movie (can’t even say B movie) from start to end. The reason why I “discovered” this was I was researching on the film that is the lowest box office hit of all time, and yes you’re looking at it now.

For a budget of two million, it earned 20 dollars for its whole run. Actually, it was shown for six days in a cinema somewhere in Texas, and earned 30 dollars. But one of the three people who watched it wanted a refund, so the total earnings went back to 20 bucks. However, the purpose of the film was mainly to complete a necessity requirement to eb a member of the Screen Actors Guild.

I’m not fabricating any story here. That’s as true as it gets. LOL. I was even surprised to see a torrent of this film because I didn’t even think they’ll spend more money on DVDs. Hahaha. Anyway, that’s new found information for you guys!
