Plan 9 From Outer Space is a film written, produced, and directed by Edward D. Wood, Jr., and released in 1959 under that name; it was also released under the titles Killer Zombies From Outer Space and Grave Robbers from Outer Space. A financial and critical flop at the box office, the film's poor writing, editing, and acting - in addition to the partial replacement of the film's only major star (Bela Lugosi) by a much younger and taller stand-in - has guaranteed Plan 9's place in film history as one of the worst motion pictures of all time.


The film centers on a plot by beings from outer space to take over planet earth; all previous plans have failed. The ninth plan is an attempt to raise the dead to terrify the living, in which Dracula (Lugosi) is taking an active part.
