Editorial Reviews

If you set out to create the worst movie you could imagine, what would be your second step (we're presuming you've already hired Cuba Gooding, Jr. as the lead.) Maybe to cast a 300 pound Swedish wrestler as LA Police Chief? Make some flying saucers out of tinfoil and string? Perhaps see if a guy named Dudley Manlove could fill a supporting role? And you'd certainly want legendary director Ed Wood, Jr. involved, as writer, producer, director, or if possible, all three!

Well, Plan 9 From Outer Space has all of that and more! (Except for Cuba Gooding, Jr. Aside from not being born when it was made, he had already committed to "Daddy Day Camp.") Plan 9 is a movie that exceeds all expectations, a difficult task for a flick frequently dubbed "The worst movie of all time." Few films are more deserving of a hilarious mocking commentary, and fortunately, Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett of and Mystery Science Theater 3000 rose to the occasion.

5.0 out of 5 stars MST3K / Rifftrax forever! June 3, 2009
If you like MST3K, then you'll love this. Having rediscovered these over the past year, I've filled my library with these and other MST3K alumni material (new and old). The kids like 'em, too.

This is the first Rifftrax I've watched. I think they're dead on with the commentary. Looking forward to getting more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious commentary to a hilarious movie July 30, 2009
By Keatsla

Plan 9 from Outer Space is a movie I had seen many, many times on it's own over the years and found it to always be highly entertaining. The Rifftrax jokes on top add further to the enjoymant of this "fine" film. I watched this with a group of people who had not seen the original movie and they liked it as much as I did-- it was like watching a really great episode of MST3K.

And I like that it is playable both with and without the Rifftrax commentary as I will likely watch this movie without them as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars "If this was Plan 9, what were plans 1 through 8?" November 13, 2011
Verified Purchase
Ed Wood has been a favorite target of many people as his films while fun were just very inept and all over the place. MST3K slammed a few of his famed films during their run on TV including "Bride of the Monster" and "The Sinister Urge" and the commentary they provided was very funny but for some reason "Plan 9" eluded the guys of MST3K.

Thankfully Rifftrax has brought their brand of commentary and jokes to what has been dubbed "The Worst Film of All Time", Mike Nelson, Bill Corbett and Kevin Murphy take to task making fun of all the obvious mistakes and bad acting in Plan 9, the horrid editing, the terrible day for night or night for day changes from one scene to another and many other problems throughout the movie.

Anyone who has seen the movie on its own knows its funny just as it is, but with the Rifftrax crew its hilarious. The constant jokes about Bela Lugosi, his addictions and the terrible attempt to use a stunt double for Bela through much of the film are some of their best work. I personally enjoyed the Tor Johnson riffs and pop culture references make this one of the best from the guys and its well worth having as this is the perfect type of film that deserves a good harsh riffing.

Ed Wood's masterpiece, "Plan 9 From Outer Space," has long been famous for being the "Worst Movie Ever Made." That accolade was given the film long before MST3k revealed such cinematic travesties as "Manos the hands of fate" or such bewildering directors as Coleman Francis.

Truthfully, "Plan 9" IS a bad movie, but a more accurate award would be "Most Unintentionally Entertaining Bad Movie" as all the continuity errors, low budget effects, bad dialogue, incredible plot holes, etc. come so fast and furious you'd swear someone made this film intending it to be a comedy. Sadly, no, the people involved really did intend a serious drama, they just failed every single step of the way.

As is, its a movie that's incredibly funny on its own. With RiffTrax its even funnier. Mike, Kevin and Bill do a great job, and even though I've seen the movie on its own about a dozen times, some of their jokes actually pointed out things I had missed during all those previous viewings.

Also, since you can play "Plan 9" with the commentary off, I was able to sell my previous DVD copy of the film, as the print on this DVD is very crisp, actually better than my standalone DVD.

So if you're a fan of MST3k, check it out. If you've never seen "Plan 9" before, please watch the movie WITHOUT the commentary first. You won't believe your eyes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny Stuff! January 1, 2013
Verified Purchase
I enjoy "Plan 9 From Outer Space". I watched it originally years ago along with "Plan 10 From Outer Space". I just remember being horrified ... that anyone could make such awful movies! My friend said I was crazy for renting them, but these things are SOOOOOOOOO bad, you can't help but not watch. So, having a good Rifftrax group to poke fun at the incessant plot-holes, bad acting, cheap crappy sets, and pretty much everything else in the film is pretty much the ONLY good way to watch something this rotten. Thankfully, half the crew of the SoL are here to do just that. Buy it. Watch it. Love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Worst movie ever" can't help but be funny! June 12, 2011
Verified Purchase
Thank you, guys! Ed Wood movies don't even need riffing, but you just have to do it! And Plan 9 certainly doesn't disappoint!

I love to watch "Ed Wood", then watch "Plan 9 From Outer Space" immediately afterward. When I received the Rifftrax version recently, it was classic!!! The bad acting, cheezy plot, cheap props...the riffing almost writes itself! I have done my own riffing on this movie, and wondered what the riffboys would do with it.

I nearly blew my drink out my nose when, during the funeral scene, a somber Bela Legosi zones out, and Mike says "and you can see the heroin kick in".

My it.

I love my riffing.... :-)

2.0 out of 5 stars Not Up to MST3K Standards May 18, 2009
As a HUGE fan of MST3K, I've followed most of the cast in their various post-MST projects. I loved the 4 "Film Crew" DVD's and highly recommend those to anyone who enjoyed the Mike Era of MST3K. I was hoping that the Rifftrax version of "Plan 9" would follow suit. I ordered this DVD through the Rifftrax site which has it, as well as the other DVD's immediately available.

Maybe it's almost too easy to tear apart "Plan 9 From Outer Space". While I did get a few chuckles here and there with the commentary provided by Mike Nelson, Bill Corbett and Kevin didn't really live up to expectation. For the most part they avoided quite a few of the "obvious" jokes (awful Ed Wood dialog, scenes switching from night to day back to night again, cardboard tombstones, etc) but, it felt as though too many jokes were left unsaid.

I really enjoy Mike Nelson's comedy, and while "Plan 9" didn't live up to expectation, I do plan on purchasing the other "3 Riffer" versions of "Killers From Space", "Little Shop of Horrors" and "Night of the Living Dead" too. If you are interested in checking out Rifftrax, or seeing how it compares to MST3K or Film Crew (or even Cinematic Titanic), then I highly recommend "Rifftrax Shorts: Vol. 1" in place of "Plan 9". "Shorts Vol. 1" lives up to the comedy high-water mark that MST3K created, and will have you chuckling for a solid 90 minutes.

On the bonus side, this Rifftrax DVD does come with an un-riffed version of "Plan 9 From Outer Space", which was worth the price of the disk for me. I didn't own a clean DVD version of the film before purchasing the Rifftrax disk, and now am glad I have a decent copy.
