Day 22: Plan 9 From Outer Space
Writer: Ed Wood
Director: Ed Wood
Year released: 1959

 

As I started watching this I thought ‘Who the hell wrote this thing?’ and now I see it was Ed Wood and it all makes sense. If you don’t know who Ed Wood is Google him. He is a, in a way, the king of camp and cult. This film is often referred to as a cult classic and after watching it I completely agree.

 

Overview: Aliens resurrect the dead to stop a bomb.

  1. Plan 9 was Bela Lugosi’s last film appearance.
  2. Bela Lugosi wore his own costume, one of the capes from when he portrayed Dracula.
  3. Plan 9 has been called one of the worst films ever made, and that distinction may have generated its cult-like following.
  4. A few actors and film crew tried to distance themselves from involvement with the film after its release.
  5. Ed Wood maintained that he was most proud of this project.
