Tearjerker / Plan 9 from Outer Space

  • You wouldn't think this film would have any, but if you've seen the film Ed Wood, then the scene with Lugosi outside his house will likely be this for you. The narration about the old man leaving "never to return" just makes it worse. Lugosi's performance in the opening funeral scene is quite effective. It's also an occasion where Wood's limited budget improves the scene - the tiny number of extras at the funeral adds weight to just how much the old man has lost.
  • On a rather meta level, there's also the fact that this is the last film the once-great Bela Lugosi ever appeared in.
