    I've got it on DVD as a gag gift.

    Well, it was actually a bday gag gift for a friend of mine. He threw a shit fit when he got it and was about to burn it and I said I'd take it if he was gonna be so pissy about it. :lol 

    And Ed Wood is classic. "Plan 9 from Mission Hill" is pretty damn funny too.

    I rather watch Ed Wood, you get to see how bad the movie was without actually watching it and enjoy just how crazy Ed Wood was.

    I remember watching some of it on Youtube in '07. I found it to be somewhat entertaining, even though it was very poorly made.

    Of course, I'm willing to bet that Plan 9 is a hundred times better than Epic Movie.

    As bad/good as is probably is, I think after watching Ed Wood no one would need to really watch the whole thing. Burton gave you the run down of what its like without having to actually watch it.

    Thats the one where one of the space ninjas (who were British) fought that space zulu (savages, harumph) who eventually succumbed to an overnight mosquito bite (beastly things) and lost his lower regions below the waist, right?

    In that case, no.

    Plan 9 is at least a clasic, I recently saw Manos, the hand of fate. Good thing it was MST3K, because that was a dog of a movie.

    Speaking of MST3K, I saw Plan 9 via Rifftrax. And Ed Wood's movie Bride of the Monster was a Joel episode of MST3K too.

    I think people miss the true genius of it and Ed's work.
    sure, it is as bad as sucking water out of a dead camel's hump, but look at what he had and what he did. He had ACTUAL film, had to edit it old skool and on a budget that these days won't get you a good meal at The Sizzler.

    today, kids own camcorders and a virtual studio sits on their desk (or carried on their back via laptops.)

    we can make movies 900x better in a matter of days and Youtube can be tainted by it, lol.

    Honestly, i think if Ed could be here right now, he'd go power mad and dump the porn work. he'd be making Plan 9 part 56, and still have UFOs made out of Chinet dishes.
    but he would be glad to see that anybody could make a film and get some credit for it.

    sorry about the rant.
    do i like Plan 9? nope. Do i love what it amd Ed's career did for movies in general? yes.
    he was nuts, but he loved movies. he felt movies was like sex and pizza- even when it is bad, it is really good and making bad movies is better than a good day at a real job, lol.

    "We are all interested in the future, for that is where you and I will be spending the rest of our lives".
    I fucking LOVE Plan 9 From Outer Space. It's a total classic of trashy, bad movie history; Criswell, Bela Lugosi, graverobbing aliens planning to control mankind through zombies, seriously. What's not to love?
    Bela Lugosi's last role, incidentally. He died partway through filming, after some of the external shots had been done. So for the rest of the movie Wood tinted the outdoor shots for different times of day, and got someone else to stand in for Lugosi, with his cape in front of his face. Utter genius.
