* StayInTheKitchen: One of the reasons the aliens are so incompetent is that Eros is willing to shout down Tanna, despite the fact that she's been assigned to his ship, telling her that her gender is for "advancing the race", not engaging in military conflict. It comes out of nowhere, since til that point, she'd been treated like an equal. It could be an invokation of the MarsAndVenusGenderContrast trope, but even so, it comes out of left field and is never brought up again.

* ManChild: Eros. He whines, pouts, and blurts out childish phrases like "No, ''you'' hold on!" or "You see?! Your ''stupid'' minds! Stupid! '''STUPID!'''" One suspects Tanna is actually is nanny, not his second-in-command.

Two remakes are being made [[MilestoneCelebration in honor of the film's 50th anniversary]], and they are very different. One, produced by Drunkenflesh Films, will be known as ''Grave Robbers from Outer Space'', and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o93o0-_7Tvc aims to be a dark and modernized version, but low-budget like the original]] and released direct-to-video in time for Halloween. Another, produced by Darkstone Entertainment, is simply called ''Plan 9'' -- based on the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eJh-gdpJxJo trailer]], with [[WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd James Rolfe in the cast]]. It looks to be the movie Ed Wood had in his head..
