Although it's kind of a cliched choice, here's another
vote for "Plan 9 from Outer Space". Though I don't,
in general, believe in the "it's-so-bad-it's-good"
school of criticism, Plan 9 is an exception. It's
so bad it's brilliant. It's perfection times -1.
Change anything, anything, no matter how small, how
trivial, and you would have a superior movie.

Remember the interior of the aliens' spaceship? -- A
bare room with a wooden table?... Or the "double" for
Bela Lugosi who looks nothing at all like Lugosi?...
Or the military man who tells his superior, "General,
what kind of soldier would I be if I didn't believe in
the things I saw and shot at?"

Even "The Green Slime" looks like "Citizen Kane" by

				- Mike Eisenberg

"Someday, someone will pass you in the dark, and you
won't even know it, because they'll be from outer space!"
