Trivia

The movie is a remake of the 1959 Edward D. Wood Jr. cult film Plan 9 from Outer Space (1959), which is widely regarded as being one of the worst films ever made due to its nonsensical plot, shoddy production values and incompetent direction. This remake however is not intended to be a parody, but rather a "good" version of the story, intending to be a realization of Wood's original vision, should he have had the necessary budget to achieve it.

Confused at it's worst, at it's best it's probably one of the better remakes out there
13 June 2015 | by (Valhalla) – See all my reviews

Well, I might as well say that before I start, I must say that whatever you're going to read below still means what I'm saying here in that this is probably the best thing you could have done with remaking Plan 9 From Outer Space. If you want a half-homage half-mock then this for the most part feels unbalanced at best.

I'm not even going to say anything about the plot because I assume you know the Ed Wood movie. Aliens attack and they use the recently dead to attack the living in a zombie outbreak. There are some funny parts like the parody of the opening and other tiny stuff like this taking place in Nilbog but really, they don't take as many advantages as I thought they would, an example is that if they wanted to do all-out satire then the Bela Lugosi character is just a zombie - no homages to the fact that in the movie he switches between being 2 foot taller then the real Bela.

Which in all honesty does make this movie seem confused. If they want to over-exaggerate elements within the film as a satire... Hey, I've seen that done with Reefer Madness, it could be funny here too. If you want to do a remake by thinking Ed Wood had some basics of making a horror/sci-fi which could work in the hands of a good director, okay. But this tries to balance both out, a more difficult thing to do then either (which I respect them taking that risk) but the end result is a metaphorical pendulum swinging between both of them while making something... serviceable. What I mean by that is that as a comedy, you can't beat the cheesiness and warped mind of Ed Wood and what he was turning out. As something straight up, it does fine - but my point is, I don't feel it did all it could do to achieve either.

How are the technical elements? Boy is that a million dollar question. I say this because while it does fine in some places and not so fine in others, often times I'm unclear on whether it's being deliberate or a legit mistake. Sorry, for this - I'm at a loss.

While I said this movie didn't feel it did all it could do to achieve what it was doing? Despite this - personally, I think it's worth seeing. The idea of remaking bad movies engraved into pop culture like this and to some extent Reefer Madness The Musical, while it won't exactly be as successful as the original it's an idea that I hope gets practiced more in the future then the usual mentality remakes go by with making a quick buck on something that will be for the most part - completely forgotten by the masses. I'll give this credit in saying that it's probably one of the better remakes out there, even if it's for the particularly strange idea to even do it in the first place.
