Plan 9 from Outer Space (1959) IMDb

Categorization

Legendary kitsch, directed by Ed Wood (nary a retake in sight) and featuring Bela Lugosi until he died, and then some. Narrated like a documentary.

Subject

Almost irrelevant in the context, but UFOs are visiting Earth in an attempt to prevent sunlight from exploding all over the universe.

Commentary

Much more competently made than “Manos”: The Hands of Fate (1966) and its ilk. The seriousness of Plan 9 as an effort adds to its charm.
