Tonight: Plan 9 From Outer Space

I think I should have saved Manos for later. Cause it is making me appreciate this movie way too much.

How I met your mother had a scene where Ted and Elliot from Scrubs over which is a Worse movie, Manos or Plan 9. Manos is worse, Hands Down.

Yes, pun intended.

After the full length of nothing that was Manos, Plan 9 is a breath of fresh air. There is an actual plot hidden in all the rambling inane dialogue. It’s a silly and stupid plot, but it is certainly more than Manos.

I was familiar with Plan 9 by reputation and from the movie Ed Wood. You can’t take a video production class and NOT learn about Plan 9 as a how to on not to make movies.

People love to bash this movie as being terrible and low quality, and they are not wrong, but honestly, if this movie was made 10 or 20 years earlier, it would be right at home with the other sci fi movies that are now considered classics. It would be seen as just a cheap and cheesy for its time, which is what Ed Wood was inspired by.

I definitely recommend it for people who like to laugh at bad movies, and again I recommend seeing it with RiffTrax or friends or group setting such as an Alamo Drafthouse showing.
