Today is 09-09-09. What better day to premiere the first teaser trailer for Plan 9, Darkstone Entertainment’s “serious-minded” attempt to remake the film hailed as the worst motion picture of all time, Edward D. Wood Jr.’s Plan 9 From Outer Space? Yes. A remake. A serious-minded remake. Can’t comprehend such a thing? That’s because of your stupid minds! Stupid! Stupid!
Filmmaker Joe Johnson of Darkstone Entertainment got it in his head to remake Ed Wood’s notorious stinker and do so with an emphasis on making it a more serious thriller. Does he pull it off? See for yourself with the trailer below.
My personal thoughts: Looks far more polished than I expected for a low budget remake of the worst movie ever made. The radio broadcast of Criswell’s opening speech is a nice touch. Not sure what to make of that computer animated floating thing other than it looking about as realistic as the hubcap flying saucers of the original. Is it me or does this Plan 9 remake based off what we’re seeing in this trailer just look like every other zombie flick made for the past nine years?
