Where strange fact and stranger fiction collide
It is out! Now the whole universe can listen to me talk in deep about what The Golden Turkey Awards called “The worst movie ever made.”
There was a bit of delay to a technical glitch, but to be honest, Honestly with my uncultured palette, I can’t detect the problem.
I really want to thank Dereck Koch and Scott Morris, for letting me part of this project. Especially for giving me the plumb position of the first guest on the first show. For those of you haven’t heard me talk on and on about it for the last six months.
If you have not heard of Plan Nine from Outer Space, it is this terrible ode to joy of sci fi movies, by a man who had a lot more love for movies than talent. It is the ultimate “so bad it is good movie.” And in this project Dereck and Scoot will be dissecting it by each nine minute segment, for a total nine shows. Each episode will have a different guest.
Like everything else I do, I go in way to deep. This is probably more than what a healthy person should know and think about such a turkey of a movie. This is probably the deepest anyone ever goes with the exception of the official history Flying Saucers Over Hollywood.
I am the only one who probably compared Plan Nine to Bladerunner and Shakespeare and bring in real UFO stories as possible sources of inspiration.
During the show I mention “the Baptists” I kind of assume that everyone knows about this , but Ed Wood ran out of money and so a local Baptist church kicked in some money, on condition that the cast would get baptized.
I sometimes forget how much a niche picture it is. This is the ultimate cult movie, where many people know about it (If for no other reason the Disney movie Ed Wood) but few people go this deep in to it.
I hope you enjoy it. And check out Plan 2 -9. I believe they are released one at a time each week.
