Irresistible Parody of tacky 1950s sci-fi movies - and Ed Wood's PLAN NINE FROM OUTER SPACE in particular - done in low-grade Black & White, with dialogue, costumes, and so-called special effects to match.

Trouble begins when Martians discover that earthlings have built an Atmos 4X Vaporizer that can wipe out whole planets. Everyone plays it straight, which is why this is such fun to watch. Even the names in the credits are a gag. Written by Tor Lowry. The same team later reunited for MONARCH OF THE MOON.
