good lord i cant remember the first time i actually saw this one. I CAN remember the first time i bought it - which was probably around 95ish - it came in a vhs boxset that was wrapped in angora, and of course glen or glenda was in there lmao
love this horrific piece of junk, just entertains the shit out of me, and its the PERFECT movie to drink too!
I find it pretty funny at times, I'm not gonna say anything bad about it, I still think theres worse movies out there then this but thats just mean...I like what I've seen of the comic series they started to make for it haha an i guess theres suppose to be a remake maybe of it but i can't remeber where i heard that
I love Ed Wood Jr. Plan 9 is a great movie as far as I'm concerned. It's cheesey and the special effects and backgrounds are some of the cheapest ever. Moving tombstones and strings on the UFOs. It's great. I got the Ed Wood box set and love it. There are many movies out there that are much worse. People pay more to see shitty movies at the theatre than I paid for my set.
Plan 9 is enjoyable to a degree but I really believe it deserves it's reputation because it's also extremely boring. It's not one of those movies that's bad but fun from beginning to end. After a while you just want the thing to end. I almost fell asleep during the opening monologue. He really was a terrible film-maker.
I first watched "Plan 9 from Outer Space" shortly following having seen Tim Burton's "Ed Wood". The film is far from the 'worst movie ever made', as it is entertaining enough. Especially if you're in that MSTK mindset.
The only reason I could see anyone wanting to remake the worst movie ever made is to try to make it worse, because that's surely what it'll be. I cherish this movie for one reason -- it was Lugosi's final performance. Despite it being stocked (pun intended) of stock footage, duplicate clips, and horrible production, it's still Lugosi. And that makes all the difference for me.
