9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By cvarland on Jan. 14 2001
Format: DVD
Plan 9 is just as bad as everyone says it is (buy it buy it buy it!), so this review is just a reminder for you to purchase the better of the two DVDs that Amazon offers of this title.
Do NOT buy the Passport Video edition...it has horrible sound and the picture lighting throbs between dark and bright through the entire film. Passport Video also included a watermark of their logo in the bottom right hand corner of the screen that lasts throughout the film. In addition to all of this, what is advertised on the package as "Show 2: THE ED WOOD STORY" is in fact 40 mins. of cobbled together interviews with Vampira, Johnny Depp, Ed Wood's wife, and one of Tor Johnson's neighbors. Sounds okay, but they are actually mind-bogglingly uninsightful and focus mostly upon Tim Burton's Ed Wood film.
The edition of this DVD that you will want to buy is the Image Entertainment version that includes the 111 min. documentary "Flying Saucers Over Hollywood" (which is a wonderful addition). This DVD has great sound and picture quality, vastly superior to Passport Video's piddly excuse for a quality DVD.
I know that it may seem counter productive to buy a more expensive release of the worst movie of all time, but you will appreciate the horrible experience of grave robbers from outerspace much more (and Image Entertaiment's documentary is great too).

By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on Feb. 22 2014
Format: DVD
I have a confession to make: I love Ed Wood's "Plan 9 From Outer Space."

It's one of those bad movies that is so beautifully consistent, so weird, so utterly bafflingly WRONG that it ends up being the PERFECT bad movie. Few movies are as perfectly suited to snark. And the wretchedness is spread smoothly like luxurious upholstery over the ghastly dialogue, bad acting and laughable storyline, until EVERYTHING becomes hilarious.

The plot is actually a bit baffling at first. Flying saucers are buzzing a random American town, but the military is pretending that they don't exist because... actually, I'm not sure why they're being this stupid. After all, it's not as if the military denials keep PEOPLE from seeing those flying saucers. So the aliens (Dudley Manlove, John Breckenridge) implement Plan 9.

What is Plan 9? It's raising the dead (Bela Lugosi, Tor Johnson, Vampira) as zombies, and sending them out to attack people.... very slowly.

Sadly, this does not have the desired effect, since it only happens to three corpses, and nobody really knows how to respond to the dead lurching slowly to attack the living. Only an intrepid (read: bumbling) trio of humans will be able to infiltrate the flying saucer, and discover why the aliens have come to Earth. It's quite a letdown.

"Plan 9 From Outer Space" is one of those movies like "Birdemic," "Santa Claus Conquers the Martians," "The Room" and "Troll 2." It is so bad that somehow it goes all the way around, and ends up being entertaining. Every single thing about this movie is awkward, strange, inept or just plain WRONG -- there is not a single redeeming characteristic about this movie.

And it's WONDERFUL.

This is the cream of the crop... in terms of miserable moviemaking, that is. Nevertheless, don't think you're in for some Uwe Boll stuff, the two don't share the same career at all.

In fact, Plan 9 offers plenty of laughs, inept acting, mistakes, flubs and the entire dictionary of what not to do in pictures. There's no story (well, there IS one, but it's quite atrociously written), the actors (forgive me for using that word) deliver their lines with the conviction of an ice pick and the effects are anything but special.

Watching it at a party or with a group of people insures almost immediately laughter and watching one of the worst films of all time.

The restoration isn't the best there is out there, but it's the best the film ever looked so far. For the price, it's a keeper.

Also, stick to your former DVD with the same cover since some special features are absent from the present edition. Nevertheless, it's great fun, and if you like commentaries, Mike Nelson's is just a load of fun, improvising as he watches, making funny voices and giving us plenty of reasons to enjoy the investment.

Voted the worst film of all time, and fully deserving of the title! I have a collection of some very bad movies, but this is the first one my kids have wanted to show their friends. They were on the floor laughing at times. I won't go into the myriad miscues in this movie (they're well documented elsewhere), but will simply say that if you want something so bad it is actually funny, this is good choice.

There are several packages of Plan 9. I have a few my self including an earlier release contains 40 minute documentary "The Ed Wood Story" featuring interviews with Johnny Depp, Martin Landay, Dolores Fuller, Vampira, Bela Lugosi Jr., and Johnny Legend.

Plan 9 is an operating system that is designed to replace UNIX. Oh yeah It is also a movie.

"Future Events Such As These Will Affect You In The Future!"

Due to their inability to make friendly contact with the earth government the aliens on the first 8 plans they must resort to Plan nine. This basically consists of reanimating the dead to become their army of conquest. Will the plan work?

Due to low budget and the unfortunate early demise of Bela, Ed Woods has to resort to his Plan 9. You will notice that a lot of the scenes are done with curtains. Does his plan work?

This would be a one star movie but because this is a must see to be culturally literate I gave it three stars.
