Did You Know?


The movie is a remake of the 1959 Edward D. Wood Jr. cult film Plan 9 from Outer Space (1957), 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.

Disjointed attempt to be nerdy-funny
29 February 2016 | by nyrnSee all my reviews

Cult films, just like music, are made by people that have no clue what they're doing, but have a strong vision and giving it 100%. Trying to do something badly, unfortunately doesn't yield the same result. And that's where Plan 9 comes in. It's not nerdy bad, which obviously works sometimes - it's just plain boring bad. Scenes are too long, lit badly (not bad enough to be funny mind you) and although the viewer is introduced to a few quirky characters, there's just no substance to hang on to. There's a lot of over acting mixed with under acting and all things considered, the movie just come across as a "fun" art school project. And not in a good way I might add. A+ for trying tho.
