Plan 9 is one of the best awful motion pictures ever constructed. I have seen “Plan 9 from Outer Space” on various events. Truth be told, now and again I have become tired of the motion picture and dodged it for a year or two. I in the long run feel the need to watch it again and pull the DVD off the rack.
