Because it is inept edited and written it also is so funny and full of wild fantasy. The dialogue is memorably surrealistic and Tor Johnson mumbles and get trapped in a grave. Zombie-like Vampira and the terrible papercut U.F.O. effects add to the fun. An excellent companion piece to Tim Burton's "Ed Wood" biography film. Only Bela Lugosi's cameo feel like true exploitation.
I would have to rewatch Santa Claus Conquers The Martians to decide whether I think Plan 9 is the worst movie ever, and I am not willing to do that! I do not believe in "so bad it's good". P9 Makes Nude on the Moon seem like Tarkovsky. (Nude on the Moon had poetry!) Definitely takes the prize for worst dialog ever. Amateur actors, even bad ones, are miles better than bad professionals.
Considéré comme un film-culte et accessoirement comme "le plus mauvais film du monde", cette oeuvre incroyable et grotesque, où les trucages apparents, les erreurs de scénario et la stupidité extrême de l'histoire parviennent à des sommets inouïs, dépassant toutes les bornes de l'incongruité, pour atteindre le degré zéro de la réalisation et de là, à une certaine poésie du médiocre. www.cinefiches.com
Silly plot with childish dialogues works as a time capsule between Universal's horror classics, sci-fi of 50s and Cold war paranoia. Although it hardly has anything to raise rewatchable value, it is watchable enough to live its reputation as one of the greatest worst films ever.
The inept nature of pretty much everything in this effort gives the film its' charm. Terrible in execution, script and direction yet completely wonderful in its' own way. Have seen it many times over the years yet still a fun watch each time. The fact that the so-called plan makes no narrative sense is just great and the no frills filmmaking is just so awful its sublime. Take off the film snob hat and enjoy.
