Writer-director Sean Harklerode targets the deliciously awful Ed Wood Jr. film, Plan 9 From Outer Space, revealing the first eight, failed plans for world domination from the perspective of the hapless alien invaders. Providing an excellent excuse to watch the movie both reviled and celebrated as the worst of all time, this 60-minute New Millennium production attends to the original with a scholar's eye, correctly choosing ludicrous accuracy over boorish caricature most of the time. The finale's descent into slapstick is the one betrayal of Wood's supremely earnest vision. Still, fans of Plan 9 will find plenty to enjoy in Harklerode's rowdy tribute. --Keith Griffith
