Zombies? Again? Can we just get all the zombies and all the vampires together and let them fight it out in a giant mud pit instead of appearing is more movies?
Now there is an idea for a movie:

Zombies vs. Vampires

^ The Asylum already did that. But the cover art was clearly an attempt to cash in on Freddy vs. Jason. The title seems to be missing from their site, but there's an R-rated trailer for "Vampires vs. Zombies" out there somewhere.

Found it on YouTube!

Re: So they're remaking "Plan 9 From Outer Space"

I was wondering who owned the rights to approve this, but it looks like the original went into the public domain a few years ago.

I guess once that happened, it was only a matter of time. Are you a low-budget filmmaker who needs instant publicity? Why, just remake a cult favorite!

Re: So they're remaking "Plan 9 From Outer Space"

Eh, I'll pass, thanks. I suppose it was only a matter of time but the original is so utterly, pricelessly silly any remake is (IMO) essentially pointless.

I wonder where my copy is...?

Re: So they're remaking "Plan 9 From Outer Space"

My mantra: Continuations good, remakes bad.

This is an interesting idea, though, making the movie Ed Wood would want to have made. I've always kind of had a soft spot for Ed Wood. He was very earnest, but he was the very definition of reach exceeding grasp; he was stuck at ten years old-- and not in a good way.

The trailer does not look encouraging, however....

Re: So they're remaking "Plan 9 From Outer Space"

The ultimate signs of quality:

The site misspells the title of the original film as Plan 9 from Outerspace.

The site incorrectly refers to Conrad Brooks as the last surviving member of the cast. Gregory Walcott, anyone?

Doesn't count as, apparently, at no time do Vampires actually fight Zombies.

This better not screw up my negotiations for the stage rights to the original. I'll be VERY pissed!

You'd better be planning on a musical, or many people will be disappointed.

Re: So they're remaking "Plan 9 From Outer Space"

Is Hollywood really so creatively bankrupt that they'll remake anything? Are there really no more new movies to make?

Son of a whore, this is just getting disappointing and depressing.

Probably, but Hollywood isn't making it.
