* AccidentalInnuendo: The co-pilot asks the stewardess if she'd like to "ball it up" in Albuquerque. Even in TheFifties, "balling" meant something other than going to a dance ball.

** A co-pilot invites the stewardess to "ball it up" in Albuquerque. The intended context is to go to a ball, but Ed Wood's dialog has always had sexual undertones, so perhaps subconsciously...

* StockFootage: Lots, most notably the military firing at the flying saucers.
** Then there was Lugosi's footage, filmed for ''The Ghoul Goes West'' (which was planned but abandoned when GeneAutry pulled out) and then awkwardly inserted into ''Plan 9'' after Lugosi's death.

In 1956, Creator/EdWood produced, directed and wrote a movie that was to change the world irrevocably, resurrect [[Creator/BelaLugosi Bela Lugosi]]'s ailing film career and be known forever as the greatest motion picture of all time. As it turned out, however, Bela Lugosi was {{dead|StarWalking}} and Ed Wood Jr. was a terrible writer and director, [[GiftedlyBad a man of unlimited drive and determination but absolutely no talent]]. But for just those qualities, it is often considered [[SoBadItsGood The Worst Movie Of All Time]]. Hey, in this case, one out of three ain't bad.

A classic tale of [[HumanAliens aliens]] creating {{zombie|Apocalypse}}s via administering "[[TechnoBabble long distance electrodes shot into the pineal and pituitary gland of the recent dead]]". The police department investigate the mysterious rising of a dead old man (played alternately by Bela Lugosi and [[FakeShemp a much taller, younger man pretending to be Bela Lugosi]], aided by a cape on his head), his suspiciously young wife and Police Inspector Clay, who's "a big boy now, Johnny". Meanwhile, "army brass" battles the aliens with a combination of StockFootage of artillery and impressive looking-through-binoculars in front of a curtain, only to reveal that the aliens have sent them messages that are often cut off by "[[SpaceDoesNotWorkThatWay atmospheric conditions in outer space]]".

** He's also the man holding the newspaper screaming about flying saucer invasions.
* CriticalResearchFailure: As if this film didn't have enough snark bait, it's pretty much 7th grade knowledge that light is made out of photons, not atoms.
