Plan 9 From Outer Space is legendary for its cheap props and special effects from film maker Ed Wood. Heck, you can even find some hilarious commentary for it courtesy of Rifftrax. I believe there is also a remake (unreleased at this moment) featuring Cinemassacre’s Angry Video Game Nerd himself, James Rolfe. It’s arguably one of the worst films of all time, but it’s so charismatic and memorable, made from a man who just loved to make films. Today I received an official press release from Nicholas Triarchos of Bad Aftertaste Animation about a cartoon based off the cult classic film.
