Plan Nine From Outer Space
USA 1956
Directed by Ed Wood Jnr
Running time 75 minutes
Rated PG

3 stars


Ed Wood Jnr's body of work is truly extraordinary. Watching the likes of Jailbait, Bride of the Monster and the cross-dressing disaster that was Glenn or Glenda it's difficult to see why Plan Nine from Outer Space has been singled out as the golden turkey amongst them but this catalogue of disaster's is so likeable, so enthusiastic you can't help but laugh watching it. As Criswell's po-faced epilogue decrees "Can you prove it didn't happen" most viewers will be sitting in disbelief at what they have just watched. DMB

DVD extras:The discs centrepiece is a marvellous 110 minute documentary entitled Flying Saucers Over Hollywood. It looks back on Wood's career and the making of Plan Nine from Outer Space, with observations from many of the original cast. You also get a fine selection of trailers including Bride of the Monster, Night of the Ghouls, Glen or Glenda and Jailbait and a poster gallery. Things are topped off by Saucer Vision, which this reviewer couldn't get to work!
