Plan 9 From Outer Space and The Little Shop of Horrors Heading to Blu-ray

Posted February 7, 2012 05:54 AM by Webmaster

Blu-ray MoviesIndependent distributors Legend Films have revealed that they are planning to release on Blu-ray two cult B-movie classics: Ed Wood's Plan 9 From Outer Space (1959) and Roger Corman's The Little Shop of Horrors (1960). The preliminary release date for both films is March 6th.

Plan 9 From Outer Space

Ed Wood's cult classic has been hailed as the worst film of all time, but it's one of the most hilariously entertaining movies you'll ever see. Aliens fear the human race will develop a deadly "solaranite bomb." After eight failed attempts, Plan 9 is their scheme to reanimate earth's dead to build a zombie army and stop the earthlings from destroying the universe. With string-powered flying saucers, twisted alien logic and "priceless" special effects, it's a movie mission destined for success - or not.

Little Shop of Horrors

A classic tale of boy-meets-girl, plant-eats-people with Jack Nicholson in one of his first film roles. Seymour's exotic plant has an insatiable appetite only for blood and flesh. As the ruthless plant grows larger and larger with each feeding, so do Seymour's affections for shop girl, Audrey. The madness culminates with Seymour and his bloodthirsty plant in a feeding frenzy of epic proportions.

I hope they get good transfers for the low budget movies they are.

NOW we're talkin'! If more of the "B" movies from the 1950's start makin' it to BD I'm gonna be in hog heaven! Bring 'em on!!! The monster and sic-fi stuff would ring my chimes. I've got pretty much everything on either DVD or laser, but I would be glad to upgrade (if they do it right). Oh, and yeah; Burton's Ed Wood on blu-ray would rock.

I wish it was the Rick Moranis/Steve Martin version.

I'd love to have Ed Wood on blu-ray. It's one of the best films of Tim Burton's classic era consisting of Beetlejuice, the two Batman-films and Edward Scissorhands, all of which have previously come out on the format, leaving Ed Wood the only waiting-to-be-released title of the bunch. Let's keep our fingers crossed for that one too.
But the two films mentioned in this news are interesting as well.

Both are public domain, right?

Fingers crossed for decent transfers.

I'm hoping for the musical Little Shop of Horrors as well. Made in the year I was born, it's one of my all time faves growing up!

Putting these out without the Rifftrax commentaries would really be a shame, not to mention a dumb financial move on Legend Films' part... Especially since they have a history of working together. Let's hope they decide to do this right, or this will really be a wasted Blu-ray release, since I doubt the video upgrade will be very good and the movies aren't very worthwhile on their own.

I'll wait to see reviews of the transfers. I'd love to see Image Entertainment tackle Plan 9, since they have a great documentary to go along with it...

I'm trying to keep my expectations realistic but LSoH has been on my wish list for as long as I've had one.

As others have commented, I hope they have the Rifftrax commentaries included (not just Mike's solo version).
