Horror (1959) 122 minutes ~ Black & White
Cult director Ed Woods cinematic masterpiece and also regarded as one of the worst movies ever made! Plan Nine is so bad its 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 Lugosis 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 youll 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.
