Rifftrax LIVE: Plan 9 from Outer Space

Plan 9 From Outer Space vintage poster public domainIn their Mystery Science Theater 3000 days, “Satellite of Love” partners Michael J. Nelson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett left no wise crack unturned for every cheesy B-movie that came their way.

Every B-movie, that is, except the infamous 1959 sci-fi/horror classic Plan 9 from Outer Space.

Now creating downloadable comedic MP3 tracks, even for good movies, the trio returned to theaters Thursday for a special live broadcast presented by Fathom Events. More than 400 theaters across the country participated in this night of laughs at Edward D. Wood Jr.’s expense.

The cheesy sets, the poor acting, the wobbly Styrofoam tombstones, the cloaked replacement for the late Bela Lugosi, the complete disregard for proper firearm handling, yes, it was all riffed upon. And it was hilarious.

Dan Diamond, vice president of NCM Fathom, said he hopes yesterday’s “long-awaited opportunity” is just the first in a series of Rifftrax Live events.

We hope to see more “in the not-too-distant future.”
