I was wondering if I were to shoot a purposely bad movie with camcorders and ketchup for blood,how would one go about publisizeing it?Im not saying Im makeing one and Im going to advertise it on here,But like noone really cared about Plan 9 from Outerspace till a few years after it was shot,how did that manage to get dug out the ground and ressurected?

That's the only way to go if you want everybody to love you.

But they have to be good T-Shirts, like the new Transformer T's.

A sort of serious answer:
Plan 9 gained popularity due to a variety of circumstances coming together at the same time, the foremost being lack of copywright.   As it was in the public domain, it was snapped up and broadcast as filler, along with the bass shows, on Sunday afternoons nationwide.  It was this nationwide exposure that got it attention & the superbly odd content of it that made it stick in people's minds years after it went off the air.
To replicate the "success"(? -- recall it was a collossal failure when theatrically released) of Plan 9 today is more difficult, due to cable.
What many people don't realize is that if you have a product to offer -- be it feature or show or whatever -- you can approach PBS and ask to be considered for satellite feed.  This means that your show can go onto an uplink and be offered to programming directors nationwide for consideration.  Contact your local PBS affiliate for details.
South Park got on Comedy Central because these 2 starving doofuses came back to Colorado & put together a video Christmas card for an exec at Fox who'd given them some money to shoot pilots in the past ("Aaron"  -- a show we will never see . . .) & he thought it was funny & sent it on to all HIS friends, etc. etc.
Get in the business.  Do public access/PBS/local radio/stage/coffeehouses, etc. etc. & DON'T GIVE UP!!!   Harrison Ford is fond of reminiscing about how everyone else he started out acting with in Hollywood was better than he was, but that he was the only one who didn't give up.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
