“Plan 9? Ah, yes. Plan 9 deals with the resurrection of the dead…”


Few films have gained as much notoriety, or achieved such popular cult status, as Ed Wood’s Plan 9 From Outer Space and rest assured, it’s just as magnificently terrible as you’ve heard.

Aliens invade Earth in hubcap flying saucers to implement their ninth plan of conquest, after their first eight failed. This time however, they’ve decided to raise the dead in order to conscript armies of mindless cadavers. Among the undead hordes are the most famous lady zombie of all, Vampira, the hulking ex-wrestler Tor Johnson and Bela Lugosi in his final performance. Sadly, the Universal horror legend died before filming was completed, but luckily Wood’s wife’s chiropractor, who looked nothing like Lugosi at all, was on hand to step in and destroy all sense of continuity!

The Bristol Bad Film Club thought it would be the perfect film with which to launch our venture – to introduce cinema’s best of the worst to Bristol, one film at a time.
