In case you didn’t realize what you were getting into when you clicked on this story, we’re showing you the first footage and first poster-type-thing to come from John Johnson (Dante’s Inferno) and Darkstone Entertainment’s upcoming remake of Ed Wood’s cult classic Plan 9 From Outer Space, retitled simply Plan 9. It turns out a Total Recall remake wasn’t actually the most ill-conceived idea ever. I don’t really know what to say about all this that doesn’t end in me just asking, “Why?” a bunch of times in a row. Perhaps if I’d been aware of the remake before seeing the clip, I could have gotten all of those questions out of the way at an earlier time. But still…

Worst Movie Ever Made Survey Is Lousy with Science Fiction

TransformersSome of the greatest feats in cinema , made by the greatest directors Hollywood has had to offer, have been of the science fiction genre. On the flip side, a lot of the worst atrocities to ever make it past the greenlighting stage have also been science fiction movies. To go from Alien to Alien Vs. Predator: Requiem, you have to take a big mental step backward. I find you can judge someone based on the distinction of them saying, “I liked The 5th Element” as opposed to, “The 5th Element was a good movie,” both of which are poorly-thought out sentences anyway. But if anyone knows anything about bad sci-fi more than the fans themselves, it’s the guys behind MST3K and Rifftrax, Michael J. Nelson, Kevin Murphy, and Bill Corbett.

Rifftrax recently held a “Worst Movies of All Time” online survey, which received over 500,000 votes. People on the Internet pointing out shit they think is terrible? What a crazy idea! You can be damned sure the results revealed a lot about what we already know as people, such as Twilight and its sequels being the Worst Movies of All Time. But you didn’t need a list for that. Just a functioning brain.

But you might not have paused to think that almost a third of the Top 25 films would be sci-fi flicks. Even removing fantastical movies in the superhero genre (Batman and Robin, Catwoman), non-science eco-horrors (The Happening, Birdemic), and moronic video game movies (Super Mario Bros., there are still eight genre films whose obvious errors cemented their laughable fates.
