Synopsis


Plan 9 From Outer Space
With its incoherent plot, jaw-droppingly odd dialogue, inept acting, threadbare production design, and special effects so shoddy that they border on the surreal, Plan 9 From Outer Space has often been called the worst movie ever made. But it's an oddly endearing disaster; boasting genuine enthusiasm and undeniable charm, it is the work of people who loved movies and loved making them, even if they displayed little visible talent. In Plan 9, alien invaders attempt to conquer the world by raising the dead, starting with an old man dressed in a Dracula costume (Bela Lugosi, in a few minutes of left-over footage grafted into this film), his much-younger and well-proportioned wife (Maila "Vampira" Nurmi), and a remarkably overweight police officer (Tor Johnson). Often funny and consistently entertaining (if almost always for the wrong reasons), Plan 9 From Outer Space is an anti-masterpiece if there ever was one, and as Criswell so brilliantly puts it, "Can you PROVE it didn't happen?!?" Its legendary director Edward D. Wood Jr. was played by Johnny Depp in Tim Burton's 1994 biopic, Ed Wood. One of the DVD releases of Plan 9 From Outer Space includes the documentary Flying Saucers Over Hollywood: The Plan 9 Companion, an exhaustive and entertaining look at the making of the film that runs a half-hour longer than the feature to which it pays tribute! ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    Worst movie ever made, ever

    Posted

    I give this picture five stars mainly because it is without question the worst picture of all time, honestly a 3rd grader talking about dora the explorer for three hours would be more coherent and logical than this film. It is the worst movie of the 50s sci-fi genre, and that takes a lot. To understand, the movie is about aliens and zombies, further, one of the stars dies halfway through production. This movie is so bad it's amazing. You couldn't even make something this bad if you tried. Your life is truly not complete until you have seen this true low in American, or even human, film. Of course, I recommend this film, because movies are in reality art, and this film is truly a work of art. Further, for a film to surpass all others in any category is noteworthy. So, it is a treat to watch this outrage of a movie.

    Only For Fans of the Film

    This film, though probably completely undeserving of a dvd in any sense, is sure to be enjoyed by that small cult of people who think the movie is great. In all honesty, it's actually so bad, it's not even worth watching, which I learned quickly after just one viewing. The dvd quality is exceptional though considering the quality of the film, and does offer some good bonus features for fans of the film, the only ones to whom I'd recommend buying this item.

    This film, though probably completely undeserving of a dvd in any sense, is sure to be enjoyed by that small cult of people who think the movie is great. In all honesty, it's actually so bad, it's not even worth watching, which I learned quickly after just one viewing. The dvd quality is poor here and fans will want to buy one of the other dvd versions that have more bonus features.

    Ed Wood is the best bad director, writer and actor out there. Would recommend watching "Ed Wood" with Johnny Depp before you watch this movie, makes it more fun.

    Very good transfer of this classic "bad movie" and with the extras, a lot of fun to watch! With the low price at Best Buy, it's easy to add this my collection.
