      Michael K It's insane how bad this movie is; it's kind of amazing. It feels Wisseau-esque (The Room) in many ways. The actors in particular, deliver their lines in such a lackluster way that it feels like everything was done in a single take. Some of their cadences are so awkward that combined with the really lazy script, I actually ended up laughing harder at this movie than I have at any comedy in a while. The casting is also really funny, notably Barbara Steele and Heather Langenkamp. I feel like Heather could have probably been a more successful actress if she had been more open to doing more horror after Nightmare on Elm Street, instead she refused to do horror because she felt nothing was as good as the role of Nancy, so it's kind of funny that she ended up doing really shitty minor roles in horror movies later on. I think Barbara Steele's performance is passable, and even fits in some ways, but it's also super ridiculous at certain points. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 10/16/23 Full Review Audience Member I was surprised at how much I actually enjoyed this movie. I felt like I shouldn't have liked it at all but somehow I did. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member I made an account just to rate this one movie. This is by far the WORST horror movie I've ever seen! My girlfriend and I have watched close to 5 horror movies a week for the past 5 years. This movie has no solid plot, no likable characters, and a convoluted storyline. The writing is like a middle schooler wrote it during summer vacation and the videography gave me a headache. I don't like giving bad reviews and I tend to give the benefit of the doubt however I cannot let this movie have anywhere close to a decent review score. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member Excellent movie from start to finish! Very creepy movie! I loved it! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review lucas m With lame characters and a predictable plot, I'd say "no thanks". Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review joe m Wow! Gripping, suspenseful and campy undertones make for a really great viewing. Barbara Steele is outstanding as Ann. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Frank Scheck Hollywood Reporter The Butterfly Room is too ineptly executed to make it little more than a camp curiosity.
