Cult Classic Film - Sci-Fi Movie: Plan 9 From Outer Space

Movie - Plan 9 from Outer Space (1959);

Rating: 3 out of 5 stars. Amazing the actors he DID manage to pull together (makes it easier to overlook the bad ones). Also, the special effects and story-line for his time, based on his budget, are excellent (I may have lower standards for the old theater style movies)... especially when you consider the possibility that this old movie, about the future, has some interesting modern correlations.  
From IMDb"Can your heart stand the shocking facts about grave robbers from outer space?" That's the question on the lips of the narrator of this tale about flying saucers, zombies and cardboard tombstones. A pair of aliens, angered by the "stupid minds" of planet Earth, set up shop in a California cemetery. Their plan: to animate an army of the dead to march on the capitals of the world. (The fact that they have only managed to resurrect three zombies to date has not discouraged them.) An intrepid airline pilot living near the cemetery must rescue his wife from this low-budget terror. "Can you prove it *didn't* happen?"
Stars: Tor Johnson, Vampira, Tom Keene, and Gregory Walcott
