In California, an old man (Bela Lugosi) grieves the loss of his wife (Vampira) and on the next day he also dies. However, the space soldier Eros and her mate Tanna use an electric device to resurrect them both and the strong Inspector Clay (Tor Johnson) that was murdered by the couple. Their intention is not to conquer Earth but to stop mankind from developing the powerful bomb "Solobonite" that would threaten the universe. When the population of Hollywood and Washington DC sees flying saucers on the sky, a colonel, a police lieutenant, a commercial pilot, his wife and a policeman try to stop the aliens.Written by

The company was able to get police cars and uniforms through Tor Johnson's son, Karl Johnson, an officer in the San Fernando Police Department, who also makes an uncredited appearance in the film. See more »
None of the public that spot the flying saucers seem to be in much dismay or panic, and act very natural in some cases. See more »

One more 'addition' to the Legend Films 'colorized' release is an added color visual effect where the alien Commanders face turns green in reaction to being hit soon after saying the line: "See? Your stupid minds, Stupid, Stupid!" He goes green as soon as he is hit then it fades to colorized normal skin tone after 30 seconds or so. There is no way he could have turned a different color like this in the B/W version as its luminance is as bright as the colorized skin. It would read as the same level gray. See more »
Compared to the garbage that fills the theaters and direct-to-video tapes of today, Plan 9 is actually pretty good by today's (much lowered) standards. Sure, it's done on a cheap budget, the script is horrible, the dialogue achingly bad, and the actors untalented. But heck, that just means Plan 9 would go direct to video today, and Cinemax would be hyping it as their Friday Premiere two months later. At least Woods seems to be _doing_ something, and trying to convey some kind of message. Go down to the video store and pick out a few direct-to-videos, and see if most modern-day auteurs can claim as much.
