Plan 9 From Outer Space needs little introduction. Even if you haven't seen Ed Wood's most notorious undertaking, you're bound to recognize the title as constantly being hailed as The Worst Film Ever Made. In fact, the first time I recall ever even hearing about the film was The Chinese Restaurant episode of "Seinfeld" in which Jerry roughly declares, "the worst movie ever produced deserves to be seen on a big screen!"

Well, as with everything these days, even The Worst Film Ever Made is worth a remake. Thus we have the teaser trailer for a new Plan 9 From Outer Space from director John Johnson and Darkstone Entertainment. Is there a point to a remake other than capitalizing on the name? No, not really. I don't think the audiences anywhere are clamoring for a second crack at the story of aliens who reanimate the dead to take over planet earth. But I must confess, given the pedigree and the assuredly lower than low budget, it looks half-decent.

Then again, I'm a fan of the Syfy channel and I hate my liver, so I'm accustomed to a certain sort of guilty pleasures.
