Over the past few weeks on social media (Facebook and Instagram), I have been revealing some of the B-movies that have inspired the novellas I wrote in "The Trilogy of Horrifically Half-Baked Ham", starting with Space Zombies! I thought I'd go ahead and compile those posts here... 📽

The most obvious, to me, at least, is "Plan 9 From Outerspace" and it's influence over almost 100% over the feature film I produced/directed/co-wrote/edited "Space Zombies: 13 Months of Brain-Spinning Mayhem!", and therefore the novelette adaptation and first book in the trilogy, "Space Zombies!" 👽🧟♂️
Summary of "Plan 9" from Wikipedia: Plan 9 from Outer Space (originally titled Grave Robbers from Outer Space) is a 1959 American independent black-and-white science fiction film, written, produced, directed, and edited by Ed Wood, that stars Gregory Walcott, Mona McKinnon, Tor Johnson, and "Vampira" (Maila Nurmi), and is narrated by Criswell. The film also posthumously bills Bela Lugosi as a star (silent footage of the actor had actually been shot by Wood for another, unfinished film just prior to Lugosi's death in August 1956). Plan 9 from Outer Space was released theatrically in 1959 by Distributors Corporation of America (then credited as Valiant Pictures). 🎥
The storyline concerns extraterrestrials who are seeking to stop humanity from creating a doomsday weapon that could destroy the universe. The aliens implement "Plan 9", a scheme to resurrect the Earth's dead, referred to as "ghouls". By causing chaos, the aliens hope the crisis will force humanity to listen to them. If not, the aliens will then destroy mankind with armies of the undead. 🧟♂️🧟♂️🧟♂️🧟♂️🧟♂️🧟♂️
Plan 9 from Outer Space played on television in relative obscurity until 1980, when authors Harry Medved and Michael Medved dubbed it the "worst film ever made" in their book The Golden Turkey Awards. Wood and his film were posthumously given two Golden Turkey Awards for Worst Director Ever and Worst Film. It has since been retroactively described as "The epitome of so-bad-it's-good cinema" and has gained a cult following. 🎞
