I don't know much about this movie, other than it was made independently (the writer, director, producer and star are the same guy) over many years (I think 10 or more) and the character's appearance changes dramatically. I know the film has a website where you can buy it online for $10, but I can't remember the name! It's allegedly as bad as The Room.

Any ideas?

The first guess would be Bad Taste by Peter Jackson. I think it's public domain now, so it can be legally downloaded at the internet archive. Although a proper copy would still be worth 10 $.

Anchor Bay released Bad Taste on DVD in the states. Bad Taste the movie or Peter Jackson didn't have a website selling Bad Taste. At least none that I know of.

Bad Taste is bad ass. The Room is unintentional hilarious. There is a difference ;)

- It is the only movie I can think of with the same person as producer, director, and actor (there are definitely others though).

- I think I remember that it was filmed over a pretty long time stretch (don't know if it was 10 years though).

- As I remember, the appearance of the actors changed during the film.

- It is quite popular.

Above are the main reasons for my suggestion.

I have no idea if the movie has a website distributing it. Frankly, I just didn't bother looking it up, but decided the above mentioned was worth a shot.

Sounds a little bit like Eraserhead, but not enough - Lynch directed but he wasn't the actor.  It did take like 10 years for him to finish though.

If you've never seen Eraserhead, do yourself a favor and never see it.

I also quite like Eraserhead.

This movie doesn't sound like it, the lead character does not change in appearance too much over the film. (Well, he does, but not in that way.) Besides, David Lynch is not selling Eraserhead for $10. If he did I'd buy a copy.

There are a lot of really bad independent movies like the one described, they just rarely pop up in the mainstream. It kind of sounds like something the guy from American Movie would have directed. Mark Borchardt. Then there's guys like Todd Sheets, who's been putting out micro-budget films for years.

I like some of Lynch's other movies - Dune and Mulholland Dr. come to mind.  But Eraserhead was just plain awful, and not in any of the fun and endearing ways that would land it on this site.

When you make a movie, things must happen.  And they must happen more than once every 15 minutes.  Eraserhead failed this test for me.

I don't want to bag on anyone who actually likes it, because there's no accounting for taste.  But man, do I hate that movie.

I'll provide my support for Eraserhead as well.

Charles Bukowski, who was notorious for hating movies in general, loved Eraserhead. If that's not a ringing endorsement I don't know what is.
