PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE In Color / Reynolds Pictures - 1959
It's time for us to post this wild 'n' weird colorized flick from the mind of low/no-budget guru, Ed Wood, Jr. PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE was part 2 of a trilogy, starting with BRIDE OF THE MONSTER and ending with NIGHT OF THE GHOULS. The film stock for NIGHT OF THE GHOULS was never developed during Ed's lifetime as he couldn't afford the cost of processing!..
Criswell leads the charge in the fun little soundclip Eegah!! sent over for our listening enjoyment, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button right there, NOW, Ralphie The Tarantula! Here's our audio offering for... PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE In Color!
It all starts with our hero seeing a flying saucer near LA during a flight!
Then, he gets in a tizzy at home because he's being muzzled by the military brass! You can hear him complain in the soundclip...
Hey, it's a freakin' flying saucer over Hollywood!!
So, the military stock footage is brought in to battle the disks from outer space!
That mother ship is still one of my all-time favorite spaceships from the fifties, I've used it a few times in my artwork.
Here's a last look at the great Bela Lugosi...
And, his doctor double used to fill in for him.
That miniature caved in gravesite is sooo bad, it's very small to start with, and, those leaves!
There's Kelton, who's supposed to be in that same hole!
It's a hoot to watch Tor try and get out of the grave, he has to squirm around until he barely gets into a position to stand up! They loop it on the DVD menu page.
A comparison of military styles from two different worlds!
At one point, Bela's character attacks the gang but a ray from a saucer in the graveyard turns him into a skeleton!.. Talk about suspension of disbelief, WTF?!! And, Kelton faints!
A classic portrait of Vampira and Tor!
The Lieutenant, the Colonel and Jeff find the hidden saucer and cautiously enter...
Now, Tor has Jeff's wife!
This still shows the utter cheapness of the cruddy set, holy crap, I mean, honestly, a second grader could do just as good, maybe better!!!..
Okay, burn the saucer, cut, that's a wrap!!..
We'll end with this kitsch box art for the 8mm version of this classic fifties B-movie monster flick.
