Plan 9 From Outer Space is often considered to be the WORST movie ever made. Directed by Edward D. Wood Jr. (who has been named as the worst director of all time), the story goes something like this – a race of advanced aliens land on Earth to resurrect the dead as zombie vampires in order to stop mankind from discovering a weapon with the potential to destroy the galaxy.
Now, if you are going to seriously judge this film based on things like script quality, acting, editing, cinematography, set design or logic, then naturally, you will come to the conclusion that this is indeed the worst film ever made. Shots within a scene jump between day and night; tombstones are made from cardboard that tip over given the slightest bump; strings holding up the flying saucers are visible and the list goes on. But to judge this movie like you would a standard film would take the fun out of experiencing something as bad as this. Ed Wood Jr. may have intended the film to be taken seriously but that doesn’t mean that we have to.
I see films such as Plan 9 as existing on a different level of film making – one below even that of a B-movie. It’s a movie that’s so bad and ridiculous, that it’s actually a lot of fun. There is no way that this movie can be taken seriously and anyone that attempts to do so will find their brain hurting after two minutes in.
They don’t make movies like this anymore and it’s almost a shame really. Thankfully, history has a long list of really bad movies that are already out there – it’s just a matter of re-discovering them. So grab a group of friends, check your brains at the door and discover why Plan 9 From Outer Space has been rated the worst movie ever made.
