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.

Now, thanks to studio PassmoreLab, our collective dream is coming true: Plan 9 from Outer Space is being converted to stereoscopic 3D, and the conversion will cost more than the original film's entire budget.Read More
