Plan 9 From Outer Space

1 hour 19 minutes

The plot of the film involves extraterrestrial beings who are seeking to stop humans from creating a doomsday weapon that would destroy the universe. In the course of doing so, the aliens implement “Plan 9”, a scheme to resurrect Earth’s dead as what modern audiences would consider zombies (called “ghouls” in the film itself) to get the planet’s attention, causing chaos. For years the film played on television in relative obscurity, until 1980, when authors Michael Medved and Harry Medved dubbed “Plan 9 from Outer Space” the “worst movie ever made”. Wood was posthumously awarded the Medveds’ “Golden Turkey Award” as the worst director ever.
