MORE PLANS FROM OUTER SPACE


Greetings, my friend. We are all interested in the future, for that is where you and I are going to spend the rest of our lives. And remember my friend, future events such as these will affect you in the future. You are interested in the unknown... the mysterious. The unexplainable. That is why you are reading DSTG! Plan 9 from Outer Space has been called the worst movie ever made. I disagree, as do most cult movie lovers. It is terrible but it has some of the funniest dialogue ever written and by now everyone knows and appreciates the passion of Ed Wood. Believe it or not readers, Ed Wood's masterpiece has been remade, simply titled, Plan 9. Here's the summary from the official website:

Now, in time to coincide with the 50th anniversary of "Plan 9 From Outer Space", director John Johnson - along with his production company, Darkstone Entertainment - is poised to remake the classic film. Simple titled "Plan 9", the remake will be a serious-minded retelling of the original story, paying homage to the spirit of Wood's film without resorting to camp or parody. The film will focus on the horror and science fiction aspects of the original, but will also be largely character-driven. Johnson's goal for "Plan 9" is to make a film that honors not only the original source material, but also Ed Wood's intentions when he made "Plan 9 From Outer Space". Wood's plan was to make a very scary sci-fi/horror film, and Johnson wishes to do exactly that - create a film that Wood would have enjoyed, or perhaps even made himself, if not bound by the technological limitations placed on filmmakers 50 years ago.

It's a gimmick, to be sure and I'm trying to keep an open mind but some movies should be left alone. Remember the remake of Psycho? You see my point. My friend, we cannot keep this a secret any longer. Let us punish the guilty. Let us reward the innocent. My friend, can your heart stand the shocking facts about this remake of Plan 9 from Outer Space?

I hate to admit that I've never seen an Ed Wood movie before in my life.
