Plan 9 from Outer Space (1959)
This was a movie which I saw when I was six or seven. Ah, my time as a youngster in Central Wisconsin in the mid-1970's, spent staying up waaaayyyy too late on Friday nights to watch "T.J. and the A.N.T." (All Night Theater). They would show old B-Movies featuring "Godzilla", various monsters and space aliens, broken up with "The Andy Griffith Show", "Charlie Chan", and other shows they must have gotten dirt cheap for syndication. But, as I was a kid, I didn't care. I was there for the B-Movies. Anything involving robots, spaceships, monsters, aliens, and their ilk, I was in. (Sadly, I've probably watched 80% of the movies shown on Mystery Science Theater 3000 without Joel/Mike, Tom Servo, and Crow T. Robot in the corner.)
As for the Ed Wood, um... classic (?), "Plan 9 from Outer Space", to my young mind it was a terrifyingly realistic plot to take over the world using zombies! Looking at it today, of course, "Plan 9 from Outer Space" is a terrifyingly realistic plot to take over the world using zombies!
I know I usually do the pen-and-ink, B-Movie Halloween series with some sort of monochromatic color scheme on these, but in this case I can only think of Tor Johnson in washed out black-and-white. Colorizing him just seems... wrong.
And, now, the step-by-step for those interested... And even those of you who aren't interested, of course.
