First Clip From Plan 9 from Outer Space Remake (Yes, I Said Plan 9 from Outer Space Remake) Is Predictably Bad [VIDEO]


But it seems to be intentionally bad, so that’s… OK? Maybe? I don’t know, my brain’s still stuck on the fact that someone decided to remake Ed Wood‘s Plan 9 from Outer Space, notoriously (and lovingly) known as “the worst movie ever made.” Frankly I don’t understand the logic of doing a schlocky, ironically funny version of a movie that was already schlocky and ironically funny to begin with, just… by mistake. It’s like writer/director John Johnson is ignoring the first rule of cult films: You can’t set out to make one.

All might be forgiven if someone spots any metal pie plates on one of the shelves in the background of this scene, though.

    I dunno, doesn’t look any worse than that Atlas Shrugged adaptation.

    Whaaaa???? This is bad, but in an embarrassing kind of way. Also, I just saw Hulu has posted the entire RiffTrax of the original Plan 9, so I’m going to go watch that, instead.

    That sounds like a good plan.

    Given how well-known Plan 9 is for being schlocky it might be more interesting to see someone turn it into a more serious “realistic” reboot, just for variety. But then again that might start a bad trend of turning wonderfully cheesy movies into grimdark destructo-porn features and that wouldn’t be cool at all. Imagine a gritty remake of Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

    At least the actors hopefully had fun hamming it up?

    I dunno, it looks a bit… dull.

    Well, I’m glad to see that Leo from Charmed is still getting work…

    That was painfully bad. Intentionally bad doesn’t work unless you go over-the-top, and this was just BAD.

    Isn’t that Excalibur?

    WTF? Matt Sloan and Aaron Yonda from Chad Vader/Blame Society Films? Those two are pretty funny in their YouTube series but seem to be playing it straight here. It doesn’t seem to be working.
