Horror (1959) 122 minutes ~ Black & White

Cult director Ed Wood’s “cinematic masterpiece” – and also regarded as one of the worst movies ever made! Plan Nine is so bad it’s good. Alien invaders use their dreaded “Plan Nine” to re-animate dead earthlings. They wreak havoc and unleash a host of things bizarre, macabre, horrific, and just plain horrible. Using footage from a Bela Lugosi movie he was unable to finish (due to Lugosi’s untimely death), Wood proved again he would and could make a film under any circumstances. Hubcaps on wires doubling for flying saucers, stumbling living dead, concrete visible beneath fake grass, and mattresses visible for actors to fall on are just a few of the unbelievable gaffes and goofs you’ll see. The result is a comical and campy spoof of science fiction movies themselves. The cast includes TV Horror queen Vampira, a host of zombies, military buffoons, and Lugosi in his last performance. Plan Nine has taken on a legendary status of its own and is a MUST for any serious cult fan.
