Plan 9 from Outer Space

1959, Reynolds Pictures, Inc.

Regarded by many connoisseurs of so-bad-it's-good films as the gold standard, Plan 9 may not be the worst movie ever made, but it sure delivers the goods. Scrutinized as deeply and thoroughly as many masterworks, it has a strong cult following. The making of Plan 9, amusingly explored in Johnny Depp's charming Ed Wood, is as strangely mesmerizing as the film itself. Truly a film for the ages. My score obviously reflects the level of enjoyment, and not the quality of filmmaking. Also see Starship Invasions.
