One of the most infamous films of all time. Ed Wood's "Plan 9 From Outer Space" is a cult classic and a must see for fans of bad movies. This film is famously labeled the worst film ever made, and on a technical level that might be true. There are so many mistakes made in this film that it is amazing when something actually goes right. If you go in with the right attitude this film could easily be considered a work of accidental comedy genius.
While this film is terrible it is far from boring. Quality wise I give this movie a 2 out of 10, but entertainment wise this film gets bumped up to a 7 out of 10. It's one of those bad films I never get tired of watching.
The grief from his wife's death became greater and greater agony. The home they had so long shared became a tomb, a sweet memory of her joyous living. The sky to which he had once looked was now only a covering for her dead body. The ever-beautiful flowers she had planted with her own hands became nothing more than the lost roses of her cheeks. Confused by his great loss, the old man left that home... never to return again!
I remember this scene from Burton's Ed Wood (1994) very well. I have always thought it was sad.
PS. This movie is better than The Room (2003). Watch it!
