Robinson Film Center shows utter crap (on purpose)

Allow the film center's Chris Jay to describe "Plan 9 from Outer Space," the next feature in the monthly series called Friday Night Freak-Out!: "It's on 35 mm film! The print is beat to hell! This is going to be so much fun!"

Ed Wood's oft-maligned classic is always described as the worst film ever made. Even worse than "Casablanca," "Vertigo" and "Citizen Kane," I'd say, but you should judge for yourself.

The mess even features a "bomb made out of the sun." Didn't Danny Boyle riff on that idea recently?

Jay even promises bad movie trailers where you can see "the strings on the backs of monster outfits."

Just go see this turkey before yours gets too stuffed.

WHAT: "Plan 9 from Outer Space."
WHEN: 10 p.m. Friday (Nov. 21).
WHERE: Robinson Film Center, 617 Texas St., Shreveport.
BYOVB: bring your own vomit bag.

Solaranites unite?!

You see the ZIPPERS on the backs if the monster suits! The strings are holding up the SPACESHIPS! Gah!

Not to give away too much, the the trailer pack features a movie called WEREWOLVES ON WHEELS. C'mon!

I will vouch for the awesomeness of WEREWOLVES ON WHEELS.

Dang it! I botched the quote. Must have been too busy swallowing my own vomit.

Take it as you will, but even Jerry Seinfeld considers this flick a stinker.

And who wouldn't want to see the trailer for W.O.W. in all it's mobile madness!?

I just got to see the trailer pack today and I couldn't stop laughing. It's certainly one of the better compilations by Chris Jay for these events.

You should put in the trailer from my college film. "Men, women, existential dialogue, burnt food and a mysterious picture frame." I'd never work in this town again.
