WORST MOVIE EVER? ‘PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE' PROVIDES INSPIRATION FOR 1:48 SCALE DIORAMA BASE, COMPLETE WITH POLICEMAN-GHOUL RISING FROM THE DEAD.

"The 1959 movie Plan 9 From Outer Space is often described as the worst science-fiction movie ever made, or even the worst movie – period. However, it has gained a certain cachet of its own, witness this Skyhook Models 1:48 scale diorama base, designed to be used with the Lindberg Flying Saucer, as used in the movie…"

Do the graves tip over?

"Liquid Sky" is the worst movie ever. Closely followed by The Transformers live action movies (the animated one was actually decent).

I name all my Pulp games that I run and start it out by saying:

"An Ed Wood production of an Alan Smithee film." So my pulp games have a very good connection to drek.

I agree with Terrement. The saucer should look like two pieplates glued together_:^))

The actual UFO's in the film were the old flying saucer kit in 1/48 scale, the ONLT Sci Fi model at the time.


I built one once, a re-issue by Polar Lights.

Here's a version:

Dynaman, Liquid Sky had nudity and girl on girl scenes. Can't be the worst ever. (that is the only thing I remember about the film, save for real bad camera work, lighting and effects)

Ed wood's wife claimed that they used the glenco models in the movie. The one shown here… But I check in slowmoation and the model in the movie looks different.

Anyone know how that Tor figure would look near some 28mm figure?

Plan 9 was probably one of the worst ever made, but has anyone seen the latest Power Rangers? My grandkids love it, but it makes the 1960-70s special effects for shows like "Dr. Who" look like high tech.
