PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE
(1959) The Orson Welles of awesomely bad filmmaking is indisputably Ed Wood and this flick is his "Citizen Kane." To criticize the staggering incompetence of "Plan 9 From Outer Space" is like ridiculing a child's drawing for not understanding perspective. Sure, the film features gasoline soaked paper plates posing as UFOs, ghouls terrorizing housewives in cardboard cemeteries, and talk of a bomb that makes sunlight explode, but Wood's vision is so earnest and pure that the "Plan 9" seems strangely wholesome. And it's no more frightening than your average episode of "Mister Roger's Neighborhood."
