Well I finally did it- I busted my 'Plan 9' cherry! Yup, rented & watched it for the first time last week. Guess I'm a real BMF now! (BMF= Bad Movie Fan.. what did you think I meant?) Have to say, I was a little disappointed after the 1st viewing tho- maybe it was all the build-up from all I've read about it, maybe it was because I watched it alone & sober, but it just didn't seem like all that. I put it aside for a couple of days, and then before I went to return it, I decided to go back and watch Eros' "All you of Earth are idiots!" speech again.. starting skipping thru the flick.. then rewinding.. skipping ahead again..then rewinding even more.. and before I knew it I'd watched the entire thing all the way thru, and it was a lot funnier this time! I don't know what it is about this movie, but it grows on you. (like toe fungus!) Now I regret returning it because I have the urge to watch it again already. I have to check it out again, or maybe even buy it.

Something I learned from this movie: Sunlight had a strange effect on '50's police cars- in bright light they looked like 1957 Fords, but when the sun went down they turned into 1955's.. and then back into 1957's when the sun returned. This held true no matter how many times the sun rose and set in a given day.

Best dialogue: there's so much to choose from, but here's one nobody's mentioned yet- the part where they tell the woman to wait in the car while they go check out the spaceship, and she doesn't want to stay there, but then she says "Oh well, I'm just a woman, so I guess I'd better do as you say!"  BounceGiggle Now there was a well-trained woman of the 50's!  Wink

Watching Plan 9 is an extremely odd experience.

For all it's flaws, I gotta somewhat appreciate it, because at least Ed believed in his cause, despite not actually having any forseeable talent.  At least he accomplished his goals and got the movies made.

I am so glad I found this website because I was begining to think I was the only person on earth who had heard of (and is a huge fan of) Ed Wood! Plan 9 is so great. My favourite bit is Criswell's introduction, it makes me laugh so much. It's not fair when people just make fun of Plan 9 because although it is funny it's also good because it shows that Ed never gave up and didn't let visible wires and bad lines ruin his movie.

I actually watched the whole thing yesterday. For some reason they were showing it on TCM.  I'll have to admit that I don't think it's the worst I've ever seen, but it's probably just as bad some of the other crap I've sat through.

And you thought Trek isn't cool.

If this movie was intentionally this bad, it would be a work of the utmost genius & Ed Wood would go down in history as a director of wit and perspicacity. I have few movies in my collection that are funnier than this one.

Sadly, he didn't mean it.........

(or perhaps he did & he's even more clever than we realise!)

  I heard him descried once as "a genuis with no talent."

This is the single best B-movie on the planet that I have seen insofar. Cheers

generally acknowlaged as the worse movie ever made along with the more recent ISHTAR i mean the show curtian on the airliner and the wacko who uses a gun to scratch his shoulder and streighten his hat and the word THERE being used four times in one sceine and how about the replacment for BELLA LAGOSSI walking around with his cape over his eyes and TOR JOHNSON AND THE LADY WALKING AROUND WITH HER ARMS STUCK OUT AND THOSE ALEINS SO IMPUTENT SO ARRAGANT SO DUMB

Is it just me or is there a bit of a SNAFU with elderly, shaky Bela Lugosi being married to young, wasp-waisted proto-dominatrix Vampira? Shouldn't she have been an elderly granny lady, walking a la "Night of the Living Dead?" Now, THAT might have been a bit scary, but pretending that Kinky-sex-dream Girl is really Undead Mrs. Lugosi? No, that's not scary, that's HILARIOUS! TeddyR

Sure, you laugh now, but what happens when scientists at Texas A&M or Sam Houston State Teacher's College finally crack the milorganite code and discover how to explode sunlight? Then it won't be so funny, will it? Why, lots of visionaries are objects of derision in their own time, only to be redeemed when science catches up to their brilliance. Ed Wood was such a man.

On top of that, any firearms aficionado will tell you that revolvers have hundreds of uses besides just shooting bullets: pointers, scratchers, hammers, you name it.

This is a highly entertaining movie for a rainy day. The effects are God-awful, the acting is bizarre at best, and the plot... well.. words fail me.

I think i nearly like pretty much anything that Ed Wood made, & this one has to be the best of the lot.
However, try watching MESA OF LOST WOMEN ( not Ed Wood???) & JAIL BAIT back to back.
That repetitive guitar in both films is exactly the same piece of music & will drive you round the twist!!!!!!.
It's like being permanently attacked by wasps!!!!!
It just won't leave you alone!.
But Ed Wood is a hero that's for sure.
Pure entertainment.
