I Love Ed Wood
9 August 2006 | by (United States Kentucky Hancock) – See all my reviews

For it's good badness that is pure signature Ed Wood I will give this film seven stars. The only reason that this does not get a full ten like any other Ed Wood movie is because he did not direct it and it is sad because this is a film that would have been great for him and might have even got him out of his slump in the 70's that eventual led to his untimely demise. When the reveal the plant creature I just pictured Wood in a writers chair (if he was even allowed on set I don't know) staring with his wondrous gaze that made him look so child like and thinking that this film would be the one. It is a sad statement to the integrity of his career at this point that they felt the need to put four naked Asian women in this film. I mean what purpose it does it serve for these ladies to be naked. I'm all for nudity in film if it serves a purpose but in this film it is not even done to be sexy it is just there and the film would have been better without it. Ed Wood fans seek this out. Casual movie people avoid.
