So many memorable quotes. My favorite unintentional comedy.
"Then they attacked a town, a small town I'll admit, but never the less a town of people, people who died."
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 direction is incredible and the writing is fast and witty, not even mentioning the groundbreaking special effects that still look cutting edge to this day. This movie is a masterpiece and a classic.
