Presented by Friday Night Frights with Larry Karaszewski & Dana Gould!

For the uninitiated, Mr. Wood was a filmmaker who pooled all his resources to make movies in the 1950s and 60s; the thing is, the films aren’t very good. In fact, they’re legendarily “bad,” at least by any conventional definition—glued together with the no-budget, eager showmanship that later gave him the unfair title of Worst Director Ever and a fervent cult following from Danzig to Tim Burton. But let’s destroy the “so-bad-it’s-good” term. Ed Wood made lovable movies with strong atmosphere, awkward dialogue, implausible plots, and a static style that is as strange and seductive as it is hilarious. It’s been 50+ years since he made his magnum opus, Plan 9 from Outer Space — with an all-star cast of Tor Johnson, Vampira, Criswell, Bela Lugosi — and we’re here to celebrate with a rare 35mm screening!

Dir. Ed Wood, 1959, 35mm, 79 min.
