    Hollywood has now reached the bottom of the barrel. In fact, I think they've gone all the way through the first barrel and are now cracking through the entombed remains within a second (or possibly even third barrel).

    At least there's room to improve. The original is hilariously awful but I couldn't finish it.

    There has always been stunt casting, this is stunt film making. They are saying “Look at us! We are re-making a crazzzzzy movie aren’t we crazzzzzzzzzzzzzzy?!?”

    This just might top the Troll remake they are doing.

    Oh great, it's Snakes on a Plane all over again.

    Guys, you can't set out to make a bad movie. It has to happen naturally. Bad movies are only funny if the people involved are taking it seriously.

    Truth!

    Still, I wonder if everything will shift from night to day within one scene, if grave stones will be easily kicked over, if we'll get monster movie villains from space still, etc. HOW FAITHFUL WILL IT BE

    I own the original but I've yet to actually watch it, and while I hate remakes almost always as a rule, I think if you're going to do a remake, might as well do it of a crappy movie and try and better it, although I'm not sure how good this one is going to be.

    Such a thing would surely be a sign of the armageddon

    Remaking.
    Plan.
    9.

    My favourite bad movie of all time.

    NO, NO, NO.
    Hollywood won't get it. The whole reason Plan 9 was so bowel shatteringly awesome is because it was meant to be serious. Turning it into a straight horror will not work.
    At the very least, this had better be the scariest fucking movie ever made.

    Yup, original writer and director is coming back for it. The kid from the movie is coming back as well in another role. If you remember, the kid in the movie was named HARRY POTTER. For realz.

    How will this work? What made the original Plan 9 so timeless was the fact that they never intended to make such a hilariously bad movie - it just happened. The replacement of Bela Lugosi partway through with Tom Mason was never intended, along with the shadow on a star-filled background, obvious boom mics getting into shots, tombstones accidentally knocked over... Gah. You just can't 'force' things like that.

    Who green-lights these things anyway?

    There are hundreds of bad movies out there that were based on good ideas and could possibly salvaged with a remake.

    This is not one of them. And trying to make it intentionally funny would just miss the point of why it's funny.

    This is why you don’t remake Attack of the Killer Tomatoes: No one EVER will do the scene in the library better then the guy in the original film when he slowly peeks over the top of the book and says “Tomatoes.” You cant make that better no mater how hard you try, the only thing you can do is not have it in the movie and then why even do the movie? So don’t. Look re-making AotKT is nothing any one should even be thinking about. Leave it, it’s fine. Leave all these movies alone, you aren’t helping anyone. Ok if you have to re-make any of these movies kill yourself first. If you kill yourself and still want to make the movie go for it, but you have to first kill yourself. I’m talking all the way to, no half assign it. Being crippled or brain brain-damaged is not enough. Being brain dead and hooked up to respirators and shit that keep your body going are not enough. Pull the plug and it’s game on. Thank you, good night and drive safe.
