The Old Fan's Commentary On Plan 9 From Outer Space - Tales From SYL Ranch - 2017-09-10
This week, a descent into madness. After spending a few weeks with fun and adventure in the black-and-white era, we're jumping ahead to 1959 for a color film -- sort of.
Yes, we're going there.
Just like The Old Fan's Commentary On The Star Wars Holiday Special, we're descending into the bizarre world of Plan 9 From Outer Space.
Plan 9 From Outer Space is a hack-fraud movie from beginning to end. The film would is a classic B-movie, and probably one that most of the audience would have left.
It's really, really bad -- but fortunately, it's so bad it's good. The film has become a cult classic.
We'll set the TARDIS controls for 1959, on premiere night of the film. You've seen everything else: the cartoons, the serials, the A-movie, etc. It's coming up on 10pm, and the lights dim in a theater converted from a live theater. It could seat a thousand and includes a balcony or two. The curtains open on the screen, and then you see Plan 9 From Outer Space.
A YouTube version was discovered after recording. I'd be amazed if this wasn't DMCA-ed at some point:
