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,
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
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 ...
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
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.
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!
