I had been wanting to see this for years, i LOVE the original, in fact I don't even rank it as a bad movie, i mean technically it is, but i can watch it, as a legit film. The Room, Troll 2, Birdemic, I can not, but Plan 9 From Outer Space is special. Ed Wood is a huge influence on me, from his no budger approach, to his oddness, he has always spoke to me. This remake starts out as a shot for shot remake, until it becomes meta, after that, it becomes a solid remake. it knows what type of film it is, in fact it is rather Troma esque, gore, boobs, tons of humor. This film is a blast! I wish that some day, someone does remake Plan 9 as a legit straight forward film, maybe i will, i doubt it but who knows. This is exactly the kind of film i wanted it to be, dumb & fun, effect driven & humorous. It has a tongue planted firmly in cheek!
