Tex is a gunslinger who murders a cowboy and steals his money. Lem is an honest man who wants nothing more than to marry Barbara. When Tex marries Barbara and treats her badly, Lem decides to settle the score.
Someone is killing young women in the park. Police suspect it's related to the smut picture racket, and begin leaning on Gloria Henderson, a smut front woman for the "mob." Her right arm man continues to procure young women with stars in their eyes to submit to their heinous celluloid activities, and if the women try blackmail, they call in a specialist to take care of the problem.

The inventory of films captured in the police raid is represented by the image of a motion picture editing room, containing numerous film cans. Rob Craig suggests that the scene may depict the actual editing room where Ed Wood edited his films. See more »

Are gangster and horror films all you produce?
Those are made by friends of mine. I think you'll find my type of picture entirely different.

Some people believe that Ed Wood knew exactly what he was doing: that he *intended* to make "bad" movies in order to make people laugh. There are plenty of good reasons not to buy into that theory, and THE SINISTER URGE is Exhibit A.
PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE, GLEN OR GLENDA, and BRIDE OF THE MONSTER are endearing in their goofy lunacy. This one, though just as bad as the rest of Wood's oeuvre, is mostly just plodding and dull.
Not that there isn't entertainment to be had here, at least for the bad movie connoisseur: my personal favorite is the obvious use of pre-existing (and completely unrelated) footage, shoehorned in on the waste-not want-not principle and "justified" through the use of atrocious dubbing and risible expository dialogue (which takes place *after* the inserted scene, making it even more ludicrous).
But that's not the sort of thing calculated to make a mainstream audience roar with laughter.
I can imagine someone trying to make a movie like PLAN 9. I can't imagine anyone trying to make a movie like this.
