In 1959 a film was released that would live in the minds and hearts of science fiction and horror fans for years to come. That film was Edward D. Wood, Jr.’s, Plan 9 From Outer Space, a story about aliens re-animating the dead in order to kill Earth’s population. Though widely regarded as one of the worst films ever made, genre audiences could not resist the exuberance and love for the art of filmmaking that showed in Wood’s work. John Johnson of Darkstone Entertainment has remade the classic film. Simple titled Plan 9, the remake is 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 focuses on the horror and science fiction aspects of the original but also is largely character-driven. It honors not only the original source material but also Ed Wood’s intentions when he made Plan 9 From Outer Space.
