Plan 9 From Outer Space (1956)

Here's another one that probably nobody needs again since it's been posted in various places, but hey, what's life if you can't add your own superfluous rip to the mix?

Now that I think about it, does anybody really need Plan 9 From Outer Space ripped at high quality 320 Kbps in pristine CD quality? Uh......well, truth be told, I forgot to set the encoder to a lower bitrate when I did this. Sometimes when I'm ripping these things I forget to reset it to different bitrates which is why you see some things at ridiculously high bitrates when they don't need to be. I've gotta stop doing that though because 320 takes up an enormous amount of space on the hard drive. Almost twice the size of 192 Kbps (and don't believe those people that say it doesn't make that much extra difference space-wise!). Originally, I was thinking of posting it at 128 Kbps, but I know people want all the extra clarity they can get when they're listening to aliens tell us how stupid we humans are.

But as a consolation for insulting extra-terrestrials, the soundtrack (with score, dialogue, sound effects, and anything else that can possibly be recorded) is in one long untitled track.

Is this really the worst film ever made? Well, out of all the films I've ever seen, it does go right up there. But on the other hand, I've seen films that were a lot more boring than Plan 9, so it seems to me that ought to count for something. It raises the interesting question, 'Are films that are better made technically, but a lot less interesting and a lot more dull, better or worse?' I don't know actually. I'd have to say the dull ones are worse though.

I wish I could ask Bela Lugosi what he thought of this film, but he died while filming it (which is why you see a weird double hiding behind a cape throughout a lot of the picture). Well, if I could talk to a resurrected Bela Lugosi, I'd probably want to ask him about a lot of other things before getting to Plan 9, but you know what I mean. It'd be interesting just to talk to Tor Johnson or Vampira. Or Lyle Talbot. Or Nicole Kidman. (She wasn't in Plan 9 as far as I know, but it would still be interesting...............Is it wrong to hate Keith Urban?)

Boy, my mind wanders after writing so many of these posts in a row (but what's my excuse the rest of the time?)

Also, if I remember right, in case anybody was wondering, I think the music was stock library music. But I could be wrong. I didn't really want to have to dig out the liner notes again. I'm sure you can look it up somewhere. I do remember the liner notes mentioning The Grapes of Wrath though, if that helps. Don't ask me why. (Oh, and I forgot to mention that it's the Performance Records version, but you could probably tell that by now. I don't think the other version out there is one long track.)

Hi Criswell!

Always did like your predictions and thanks for the info!

And I hope all the extra-terrestrials out there don't think we're all idiots. I'd hate to think E.T. hated us. He liked our candy at least.
I read about this movie in "" and collapsed with laughter:) It was called "the worst Hollywood movie ever made".I wish I could download this movie from somewhere...
"Greetings, my friends... we are all interested in the future, for that's where you and I are going to spend the rest of our lives!"

Thanks for this!

On the 'WFMU Beware of the Blog', tho, you can find a full 40 minute track of The Amazing Criswell making predictions about culture, finance, Hollywood, etc... right up thru his prediction of the end of the world!! -- which according to Criswell was fated to occur in August of 1999.

There's a link.
