Pleased to see my local movie theater will be hosting the live
Rifftrax showing of Manos, The Hands of Fate on January 24. I'm all
psyched at the thought of watching nothing happening for long
stretches of time. Women in nightgowns wrestling. Torgo shuffling
around. A dream come true!

It's a rerun, but if you hadn't seen it before, that's at
least as good. They're reshowing _Plan 9 From Outer Space_ the week
after that, too.

Well, if you want to look at "PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE" in a far more
enlightened mindset.
PLAN 9 was the first serious ZOMBIE MOVIE.
---

"Plan 9 from Outer Space" (originally titled "Grave Robbers from Outer
Space") (1959)
The plot of the film involves extraterrestrial beings who are seeking to
stop humans from creating a doomsday weapon that would destroy the universe.
In the course of doing so, the aliens implement "Plan 9", a scheme to
resurrect Earth's dead as what modern audiences would consider zombies
(called "ghouls" in the film itself) to get the planet's attention, causing
chaos.

In San Fernando, California, two gravediggers are filling the grave of
the young wife of an unnamed old man. Hearing a strange noise, they decide
to leave the cemetery but are attacked and killed by the resurrected corpse
of the young woman. Meanwhile, in the skies nearby, a pilot named Jeff Trent
and his co-pilot Danny encounter a flying saucer.

Absorbed in his grief over his wife's death, the old man walks into the path
of an oncoming automobile. At his funeral, mourners discover the bodies of
the gravediggers. Inspector Daniel Clay and other police officers come to
the cemetery to investigate. While searching the graveyard, Clay encounters
the female zombie, now joined by the reanimated corpse of the old man, and
is killed.

---

In short, what is the plot of George Romero's "Night of the Living Dead"
(1968)?
Radio reports explain that a state of mass murder is sweeping across the
East Coast of the United States. When Ben finds a television, the emergency
broadcaster reports that the recently deceased have become reanimated and
are consuming the flesh of the living. Experts, scientists, and the United
States military do not know the cause, though one scientist suspects
radioactive contamination from a space probe returning from Venus that
exploded in the Earth's atmosphere.

---

One movie led fairly directly to the other. In fact you could logically
consider "Night of the Living Dead" (1968) as a SEQUEL to
"Plan 9 from Outer Space" (originally titled "Grave Robbers from Outer
Space") (1959). Except "Night of the Living Dead" was a far-too-successful
implementation of the "Reactivate the undead plan". In this case, PLAN 9
tells the backstory of what caused the dead to rise from their inert state
to consume the flesh of the living. Extending the thought, when the villain
of PLAN 9 died, the plan continued, the reanimated dead continued to infect
the living plus reanimate the dead and the radiation of the UFO from PLAN 9
continued to orbit the planet reanimating the recently dead by that method
as well.

PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE the original "Zombies Devour the World" movie
with "Night of the Living Dead" merely the logical continuation of PLAN 9
after the masterminds of the plan died (and logically were reanimated to
become instinct-driven thoughtless human-flesh-devouring zombies). The ship
in PLAN 9 went boom at the end of the movie, but did not necessarily stop
emitting the "reanimate the recently dead" radiation which caused "Night of
the Living Dead" (and all the sequel branch out movies to that keystone
movie) thereafter.

Ah, but the plot of "White Zombie" (1932) is not one of the legions of
the undead eat the world.

Whereas "PLAN 9" is indeed one, which if the plot had progressed as
intended without the villain being blown up at the end, would have resulted
in "Night of the Living Dead" if left unchecked. "PLAN 9" also, despite the
villains death, had the potential of not merely one orbital satellite (which
was not something that humans had mastered at that time), but hundreds
easily. And if not, why not just dump a few "recently dead reanimation
beamers" on the moon? Easily out of reach of humans in that era, and it can
target Earth nations at will. With the reanimated undead running wild, the
sheer chaos would prevent humans from going into orbit or landing a moon
vehicle to destroy the reanimation device. After all, in the main plot of
"PLAN 9", there is not just one alien spaceship with one master villain with
one reanimation ray, but a small fleet of aliens with their own space
station.

The main plot of the movie is to have Earth be disabled from discovering
Solabonite (which would destroy the universe) and that is a pretty damned
good reason to get more than a mere clubhouse full of aliens with undead
reanimation tech into the game. I'd say that's a pretty good motivation for
an entire alien planet to unleash the fury. Maintaining the "higher ground"
tactical zone, the logical attack points are from orbital "dead reanimation"
weapons platforms and sticking those devices on the moon, all too far out of
reach for practical disabling by the humans whom have not even launched
manned spaceflight until April 1961. Tack in the point that in "PLAN 9" the
bites of the undead are contagious and that makes "Night of the Living Dead"
(along with all the spin-offs & sequels) natural extensions of the original
"PLAN 9" plotline. With "PLAN 9" we have a targetable villain, in "Night of
the Living Dead" there is no "kill that one guy & the threat is over" ending
(which makes more sense tactically any way you slice it if you're planning
to eliminate a threat to the entire universe). Of course, reanimating the
undead for a feeding frenzy is not nearly as tidy or quick as doing orbital
mass-driver asteroid bombardment, but that allows the planet to be easily
cleaned up in a few decades with minimal damage to the natural resource
commodities for any future alien inhabitants.

"White Zombie" (or the sequel "Revolt of the Zombies") is not even in
the main plotline of either "PLAN 9" or "Night of the Living Dead".

In the course of doing so, the aliens implement "Plan 9", a scheme to
resurrect Earth's dead as what modern audiences would consider zombies
(called "ghouls" in the film itself) to get the planet's attention, causing

In the weeks that follow, newspaper headlines report other flying saucer
sightings. The military, under the command of Col. Thomas Edwards, Chief of
Saucer Operations, attacks the alien spaceships, which flee Earth. Edwards
reveals that the government has been covering up the flying saucers, and
wonders if the aliens are connected to other disasters on Earth.

The aliens return to Space Station 7 for regeneration. Their commander,
Eros, informs their ruler that he has attempted, unsuccessfully, to contact
the governments of Earth. He says that to force the people of Earth to
acknowledge his people's existence, he is implementing Plan 9, which
involves resurrecting the recently dead by stimulating their pituitary and
pineal glands. The three alien ships return to Earth.

Eros tells them that human weapons development will inevitably lead to the
discovery of solarbonite, a substance that has the effect of exploding
"sunlight molecules". A solarbonite explosion would set off a chain reaction
that would destroy the entire universe. Eros believes humans are too
immature to not use this power, and intends to destroy mankind to prevent
this.

Plot

On arrival in Haiti, Madeleine Short reunites with her fiancé Neil Parker,
with imminent plans to be married. On the way to their lodging, the couple's
coach passes Murder Legendre, an evil voodoo master, who observes them with
interest. Neil and Madeleine arrive at the home of the wealthy plantation
owner, Charles Beaumont. Charles' love of Madeleine prompts him to meet
Murder secretly in Murder's sugar cane mill, operated entirely by zombies.
Charles wants to convince Madeleine to marry him and solicits Murder's
supernatural assistance. Murder states that the only way to help Charles is
to transform Madeleine into a zombie with a potion. Beaumont agrees, takes
the potion, and surreptitiously gives it to Madeleine. Shortly after
Madeleine and Neil's wedding ceremony, the potion takes effect on Madeleine,
who soon dies and is buried. Murder and Charles enter Madeleine's tomb at
night and bring her back to life as a zombie. In a drunken state, a
depressed Neil sees ghostly apparitions of Madeleine and goes to her tomb.
On finding it empty, Neil seeks out the assistance of the local missionary,
Dr. Bruner, who recounts how Murder turned many of his rivals into zombies,
who now act as Murder's closest guardians. The two men journey to Murder's
cliffside castle to rescue Madeleine.

At the castle, Charles has begun to regret Madeleine's transformation and
begs Murder to return her to life, but Murder refuses. Charles discovers he
has been tainted by Murder's voodoo and is also transforming into a zombie.
As Neil enters the fortress, Murder senses his presence and silently orders
Madeleine to kill Neil. She approaches Neil with a knife, but Bruner grabs
her hand from behind a curtain, making her drop the knife and walk away.
Neil follows Madeleine to an escarpment, where Murder commands his zombie
guardians to kill Neil. Bruner approaches Murder and knocks him out,
breaking Murder's mental control over his zombies. Undirected, the zombies
topple off the cliff. Murder awakens and eludes Neil and Bruner, but Charles
pushes Murder off the cliff. Charles loses his balance and also falls to his
death. Murder's death releases Madeleine from her zombie trance, and she
awakens to embrace Neil.

Another simple example of a potential SEQUEL-VERSE (universe which has
all of the raw established plot points to allow another Fictional Story
Universe to continue mostly unaltered from the previous).

Take for example, "PHANTOM 2040" (the less-than-compelling animated
series focusing on "the ghost who walks" which has rather crappy choices of
incidental music cues)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phantom_2040

We have a Fractal Biot (humanoid robot) named Heisenberg which can
change shape & becomes self-aware. A legion of mostly non-self aware
disposable Biots used for a variety of services & manufacturing. A large
metallic "City State" around which the poisoned world is mostly sterile.
Vehicles fly by usage of beamed power via a "Consolidated Tesla -- Beamed
Yard" power array. The gene-tweaked Ghost Forest (primarily populated by
the "Ghost Wood" plant) is growing under Metropia (once known as New York
City).

---

Now take these raw components, fast forward a few centuries and look at
another Fictional Universe in which everything could snap in like a perfect
puzzle piece.

Ergo Proxy
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ergo_Proxy

The story begins in a futuristic domed city called Romdeau, built to protect
its citizens after a global ecological disaster thousands of years prior. In
this utopia, humans and AutoReivs (androids) coexist peacefully under a
total management system. A series of murders committed by robots and
AutoReivs infected with the Cogito virus (which causes them to become
self-aware) begins to threaten the delicate balance of Romdeau's social
order. Behind the scenes, the government has been conducting secret
experiments on a mysterious humanoid life form called a "Proxy." The Proxy
beings (described as God-like and Immortal) are believed to hold the key to
the survival of mankind.

Re-l (pronounced /ri?'?l/ or "Ree-EL"; also represented by the spelling
"REAL" in the Romdeau citizen database) Mayer is assigned to investigate
some of the murders with her AutoReiv partner, Iggy. She encounters two
unknown and highly powerful creatures. She later learns that a Proxy was
involved. The other central character, an immigrant named Vincent Law, is
revealed to be connected in some ways with this Proxy. After being hunted
down, Vincent lives in a commune on the outside of the dome for a while.
During the massacre of the commune by Raul Creed of the Security Bureau,
Vincent leaves the area for Mosk, his birthplace, in an attempt to recover
his memories. Re-l later rejoins him to try to discover the truth behind the
Proxies and the domes. It is revealed among other things that domes are all
created by Proxies as well as the people inhabiting them who are created in
special incubators.

In the Romdeau arcology, the government is divided between several entities:
the Intelligence Bureau, the Health & Welfare Bureau, and the Security
Bureau, are named in the series, all under the control of an Administrator
who is referred to as the "Regent" and grandfather of "REAL."

The primary AutoReiv types are referred to as either 'Companion' or
'Entourage,' depending on their role. There are others designed for leisure
or combat functions; AutoReivs seem to be constructed of varying degrees of
cybernetic complexity, as witnessed by AutoReivs on occasion producing blood
splatter when shot and killed.

The humans in the city are grown in artificial wombs but are still related
to their ancestors. Numerous times throughout the series it is stated that
the humans living in the domes have no capacity to reproduce naturally, or
at least that's what they have been told. Likewise, when a new person is
grown, they are done so to fulfill a specific purpose, thus ensuring that
person's future-place in society through a "raison d'être" (i.e., a "reason
for existence").

Sorry, got distracted with other things.

One more obvious SEQUEL-VERSE would be Stephen Spielberg's (actually
Brian Aldiss's universe expanded by Ian Watson) "A.I. Artificial
Intelligence" (released 2001) with this being the prequel to Philip K.
Dick's "Screamers" universe.
A robot can be programmed for many functions. Consumer, military,
manufacturing, and so on. The better the design, the more versatile the
options for functional operations. Granted a consumer-grade humanoid robot
will not be designed with longer durability bearings and oiled for high
manufacturing cycle friction parts. However, a consumer-grade robot could
hold a gun, cook a meal, scour toilets, and build automobiles. The humanoid
child robots (passing for human children) could also infiltrate enemy bases,
plant bombs, cut the throats of commanding officers, corrupt command codes,
sabotage tactical hardware, poison enemy troops, and so on.

A "David" model robot and his mecha Teddy Bear toy could pass
unsuspected until the enemy stronghold was rendered impotent. One durable
bit of versatile "fake child" hardware can commit many operations tactically
beneficial to allied troops against unwary enemy troops. If they can be
used in this fashion, then they will be used.

Development of A.I. originally began with director Stanley Kubrick in the
early 1970s. Kubrick hired a series of writers up until the mid-1990s,
including Brian Aldiss, Bob Shaw, Ian Watson, and Sara Maitland. The film
languished in development hell for years, partly because Kubrick felt
computer-generated imagery was not advanced enough to create the David
character, whom he believed no child actor would believably portray. In
1995, Kubrick handed A.I. to Spielberg, but the film did not gain momentum
until Kubrick's death in 1999. Spielberg remained close to Watson's film
treatment for the screenplay. The film was greeted with generally favorable
reviews from critics and grossed approximately $235 million. A small credit
appears after the end credits, which reads "For Stanley Kubrick."

A.I. Artificial Intelligence
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A.I._Artificial_Intelligence

In the late 21st century, severe global warming has flooded coastlines, and
a drastic reduction of the human population has occurred. There is a new
class of robots called Mecha, advanced humanoids capable of emulating
thoughts and emotions. David (Haley Joel Osment), a prototype model created
by Cybertronics of New Jersey, is designed to resemble a human child and to
display love for its human owners. They test their creation with one of
their employees, Henry Swinton (Sam Robards), and his wife Monica (Frances
O'Connor). The Swintons' son, Martin (Jake Thomas), was placed in suspended
animation until a cure can be found for his rare disease. Although Monica is
initially frightened of David, she eventually warms to him and activating
his imprinting protocol, which irreversibly causes David to project love for
her, the same as any child would love a parent. He is also befriended by
Teddy (Jack Angel), a robotic teddy bear, who takes it upon himself to care
for David's well being.

Screamers (1995 film)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Screamers_(1995_film)

Screamers is a 1995 dystopian science fiction film starring Peter Weller,
Roy Dupuis, and Jennifer Rubin, and directed by Christian Duguay. The
screenplay, written by Dan O'Bannon with a rewrite by Miguel Tejada-Flores,
is based on Philip K. Dick's short story "Second Variety", and addresses
themes commonly found in that author's work: societal conflict, confusion of
reality and illusion, and machines turning upon their creators. Although
critical reaction to the film was generally negative at the time of its
release, it has gained a cult following. A sequel was released in 2009, to
equally mixed reviews.

(skipping down)

While traveling through a destroyed city they discover a war orphan, a young
boy named David (Michael Caloz), clutching a teddy bear. Unwilling to
abandon a defenseless civilian, they bring him along on their journey. The
following night they are attacked by a reptilian screamer that they have
never before encountered. Hendricksson is alarmed that his tab did not
protect him from this new AMS, and wonders if the screamers have somehow
liberated themselves from Alliance control and are now fighting for
themselves.

As Hendricksson's group nears the NEB compound an enemy soldier opens fire
on David, who explodes in a shower of gears, bolts, and wires. The soldier
explains to the shocked Alliance men that David was a "type 3" screamer
impersonating a human. Most of the NEB contingent has been wiped out by
another David screamer that a patrol unwittingly brought into the base.
Three NEB soldiers - Becker (Dupuis), Ross (Charles Powell), and Jessica
(Rubin) - are the only survivors.

The group heads to the NEB command center but finds only an empty building
and large pools of blood. Locating the mainframe computer, Hendricksson
learns that the NEB treaty message was just as false as the Alliance message
he received from Earth. The group retreats to their bunker, pursued by
"Davids".

Screamer types

Autonomous Mobile Swords are machines created by The Alliance to defend
themselves against the NEB. Nicknamed "Screamers" for the incredibly loud,
metallic squeal they emit before an attack.

Throughout the film, several types are introduced:

A destroyed Type 1 screamer
Type 1: These were the original screamers built by The Alliance. They embed
themselves in the sand and ambush unsuspecting soldiers, slicing through
limbs and torsos with a circular saw.
Type 1 Revised: A sleeker design than the original. They are vaguely
lizard-shaped, with small legs, and they can hack into computer terminals.
Armed with a head mounted buzzsaw blade.
Type 2: A grown man, acting as a wounded soldier crying for help. Not
apparently armed, they do have a great deal of strength. One claims that it
cut its current face off of the former wearer. This model possesses advanced
reasoning skills and can interact with humans. However, they have a lower IQ
and repeat phrases because of their limited vocabulary.
Type 3: A small boy holding a teddy bear. Acts as an orphan and pleads "can
I come with you?", allowing the unit to be taken inside defended and
fortified targets. Their mouths can expand and contain razor-like teeth and
they have buzz saw blades embedded in their hands.

Other types that were not identified in the film are:

The teddy bear: Usually part of the Type 3 disguise.
A grown woman: The most advanced model, capable of bleeding, crying,
laughing and sexual intercourse. This model, similar to the Type 2 soldier
model, possesses advanced reasoning and sentience, as indicated in "Jessica"
defending Hendricksson from another unit. The unit professed its love for
him and refused to board the shuttle, afraid of what its programming would
force her to do if she ever reached Earth. This character's "emotions" and
actions stand in complete opposite to its counterpart in the original story,
Second Variety.
Becker: Although acting as a Type 2 screamer, he was easily able to interact
with humans, which this type is supposed to have difficulty with. His type
and identification tag appeared to be written in the screamers' own
language.
