Made with incredible but endearing naivety, this sums up Ed Wood as a whole. Absolute genius in it's awfulness! A real party film to watch with friends and beers...hilariously bad!

How the hell do you rate a movie like Plan 9? It's the quintessential bad movie, cheap and obtuse and pieced-together. Awful acting, costumes, script and set. But it's so much fun to watch! (And one of the spacemen is played by Dudley Manlove, one of the best actor names ever.) I compromised with a three-star rating. One star for quality, but 4 stars for entertainment value. Get a case of cheap beer, invite some pals over, and act along with it. (More fun than Rocky Horror.)

Plan 9 from Outer Space (1959) Directed by the legendary director Ed Wood, who directed some of the worst films of all time, this one is the ultimate in bad filmmaking. The acting is horrible, the special effects are incredibly bad, and the storyline makes no sense. If you tried to make a crappy film, you couldn't do it as pathetically as Wood does in this one. Be sure to look for the flying saucer, which is two paper plates glued together, spray painted and suspended by a string. The legendary actor Bela Lugosi, known for playing Dracula, makes an appearance. He died before principle shooting, but there were test shots of him done, so producers just put those in the film. I mean, why wouldn't you have Dracula in a film about space aliens invading the earth and creating zombies? - See …

Ok, folks, you're all gonna bash me for this but....I think this movie is 1000x better than Avatar. Hell, I prefer Ed Wood and George Lucas to James Cameron any day. Because there's something that seperates Cameron from Wood and Lucas. At least Lucas and Wood are (or in Wood's case, was) modest. Cameron's one of the biggest and most pretentious douchebags I've ever seen. Everything he makes he claims "This is gonna revolutionize filmmaking!" And how was Avatar? Hm, shitty story. Lame characters. Boring.
So, what makes Plan 9 any better than Avatar? Well, at least Plan 9 knows what it is. Avatar was a mediocre and pretentious mess of a film that wasn't even entertaining. The story was the crap and the acting was bad. It tried to be one of the greatest movies ever made and it failed. …

OK, I'm just gonna say it right now: I think Ed Wood is one of the greatest filmakers who ever lived. Hell, he's my fifth favourite filmaker (behind John Carpenter, Stanley Kubrick, Steven Spielberg, and Quentin Tarantino). Seriousely, I love the man's work! Hell, he's one of the reasons why I love Uwe Boll: because Uwe Boll reminds me so much of Ed Wood. I'm NOT joking. Ed Wood has to be one of the happiest and most enthusiastic filmakers of all time, and Plan 9 From Outer Space is the greatest testament to his awesomeness.
I mean seriousely, the fact that he used gasoline-soaked paper plates as flying saucers, and made his actors deliver awesomely awkward dialogue in really fucking weird ways, and the fact that he casted his wife's chiropractor as one of the villians after it's …
