Plan 9 from Outer Space (originally titled "Grave Robbers from Outer Space", or simply known as Plan 9) is a 1959 American science fiction thriller film written and directed by Ed Wood and released by Distributors Corporation of America (as Valiant Pictures).

The film bills Bela Lugosi posthumously as a star, although silent footage of the actor had been shot by Wood for other, unfinished projects just before Lugosi's death in 1956.

Initial Release: July 22, 1959
Awards: For years the film played on television in relative obscurity, until 1980, when authors Michael and Harry Medved dubbed Plan 9 from Outer Space the "worst movie ever made". Wood was posthumously awarded the "Medveds' Golden Turkey Award" as the worst director ever. Wikipedia

"Can your heart stand the shocking facts about Graverobbers from Outer Space?"

That's the question on the lips of the narrator of this tale about flying saucers, zombies and cardboard tombstones. A pair of aliens, angered by the "stupid minds" of planet Earth, set up shop in a California cemetery.

Their plan: To animate an army of the dead to march on the capitals of the world. (The fact that they have only managed to resurrect three zombies to date has not discouraged them.) An intrepid airline pilot living near the cemetery must rescue his wife from this low-budget terror.

"Can you prove it *didn't* happen?"
