King of the So Bad It’s Good genre, Ed Wood’s most famous film is actually a heck of a lot better than more boring drivel like Glen or Glenda. Sure, it’s got laughable acting, styrofoam gravestones that keep falling and spaceships made out of paper plates being flown with fishing wire, but it’s also more comprehensible than a lot of the junk he made. The mostly unintelligible plot involves a group of evil aliens who invade the earth, causing the dead to emerge from their graves and attack the innocent citizens of earth. A highlight has to be Bela Lugosi‘s appearance and the aliens being dressed in carhop uniforms. Fans of Tim Burton’s Ed Wood should definitely rent this underground classic when they see that film.
