Something that looks like a meteorite lands near a small town in rural USA, but it's officially not registered, to the point that the local police refuse to even investigate. Later some weird ray emmanates from that "meteorite" which is later revealed to be a UFO, and local genius scientist Lucy (Sara Eshleman) soon concludes it's only the first of several rays - which will eventually lead to disaster ... and disaster happens not much later when - the newly deceased rise from their graves to attack and kill the living ... and this soon starts to become a problem, naturally.

The film soon follows three groups of people in regards of how they handle the situation, one led by Lucy nd Kelton the cop (John Johnson), one by pilot Jeff (Brian Krause), the man who first reported the meteorite and now wants to save his wife (Amy Hart), and washed-out B-movie star Criswell (Mister Lobo), and then there's a special army squad sent into town to kill everyone, living and dead alike, to cover up a major mishap.

Eventually, anorther ray hits that makes the undead smarter and able to use tools and weapons, and somehow all three groups of heroes gather at the center of these activities, an abandoned school building, where they have to come to terms with the fact that aliens are actually behind the zombie uprising. And from here it only gets worse ...

 

On a theoretical level, it stands to reason if it's a good idea to remake a movie dubbed by many "the worst movie ever", Ed Wood's Plan 9 from Outer Space, which has since its release attained cult status.

On a more practical level, Plan 9 has actually turned out pretty well, it's a low budget fun-filled sci-fi action film which is actually deeper rooted in 1980s genre fare than in 1950s drive-in flicks from (the original's) 1950s, and it fortunately steers clear of poking fun at the by now beloved original, despite some sight gags alluding to it, but that's more loving hommage than parody.

That said, is Plan 9 the masterpiece Ed Wood wanted his Plan 9 from Outer Space to be? Certainly not, but let's face it, the plot was never cut out for that, and what the new film is is a fun ride with zombies, fast-paced, well-acted, gory in all the right places, and it's a film that doesn't take itself very seriously without being moronic.

Of course, it helps if you're into alien invasion/zombie flicks of its sort that demand a lot of suspension of disbelief, but if so, you'll almost certainly be entertained!
