This is an Ed Wood film – so it is pretty much pointless trying to give you a detailed synopsis of the plot as it wouldn’t add value and it wouldn’t make any sense.
Basically, as a quick overview – a UFO arrives on Earth and the inhabitants decide that they can take over the world by implementing ‘Plan 9’, which seems to involve resurrecting the dead from a graveyard in L.A with the intention of them taking over the world.
They only seem to manage to resurrect 3 zombies, who by any stretch of the imagination don’t look like zombies at all.
The film, like any Ed Wood film is fun (as long as you know what you are letting yourself in for), and the theatrical posters are striking…..and way better than the actual film.
Such is the collect-ability of Ed Wood, and the fact that the theatrical poster for ‘Plan 9 from Outer Space‘ was so distinctive, that these now change hands on eBay for up to $10K for originals.
