The Room (2003)

The Room is a 2003 cult independent film starring, directed and written by Tommy Wiseau, that was intended to be a drama/black comedy mix but instead turned into surreal comedy because of bad production values (as well, as bad (possible - it's not clear if it was intentional or not) directing, writing, editing, acting and probably anything else), despite filmmakers spending an amazing 6 million dollars (!!!) on production and post-production. Theatrical release was not successful, but after cable channel Adult Swim aired it as an April Fools Day joke, the film gained immense cult following and many additional midnight screenings ensued. A fan-developed game exists (made in the style of 8-bit consoles) and a 3D conversion was also announced and a book has been written about the film.

The following weapons were used in the film The Room:


Daisy Airstrike 240 (Beretta 92FS Inox Airsoft Replica)

Johnny (Tommy Wiseau) opens a small chest with a Beretta 92FS Inox inside and uses it. A closeup of the gun reveals that it is actually a Daisy Airstrike 240, an airsoft gun which looks very similar to the Beretta 92FS Inox. This explains why no spent casing is ejected and why the slide does not move when it is fired.

Beretta 92FS Inox (for reference) - 9x19mm.

Smith & Wesson 5906

Chris-R (Dan Janjigian) appears to use a later generation model Smith & Wesson 5906 (noted by its rounded trigger guard and blued parts) in 9x19mm to threaten Denny (Philip Haldiman). It is an airsoft replica as well, judging by the magazine.

Trivia: The presence of airsoft guns in this film may have been explained in the memoir The Disaster Artist. According tto the book, Tommy Wiseau originally wanted to have Dan Janjigian, the actor portraying Chris-R, to fire an actual gun in the air as a way of intimidating Denny. However, due to the film set's close proximity to the warehouse of a camera rental company, Tommy was not allowed to have live guns firing on set. This possibly caused him to have Dan instead use an airsoft gun to stand in for an actual firearm.
