Since MovieCritic1994 said we're all allowed to do this, I thought I'd give it a shot.



They were both meant to be horror movies, but because of their incompetence in every technical aspect, they ended up being unintentional comedies. Actually, several sites list them not as B-movies but as Z-movies.

In my All-Time Worst list, MANOS currently ranks at #26, and, PLAN 9 at #41, which is why I choose the former. I felt that PLAN 9's plot had more potential to be a good movie (with another director, of course). There weren't that many sci-fi movies that tried to have a message back then (in this case, it was anti-nuclear). Even with a better real* director, MANOS' plot would've sucked. Also, PLAN 9 kept my interest for a short amount of time, while MANOS bored me from beginning** to end. You don't hear that everyday when comparing a black & white movie to a colored movie.

*The script writer and director was a salesman who made the movie on a bet. At least Ed Wood was passionate about cinema and tried to include his influences in his movies.
**The movie opens with a couple of minutes of driving shots from a car's point of view. It was originally going to have the opening credits.

Plan 9 from Outer Space is really awful, but at the very least it looks like an actual effort at filmmaking. As for Manos: The Hands of Fate no effort is put into the project. It's awfully dubbed and the story makes no sense whatsoever. I would say Manos is worse than Plan 9 From Outer Space.

Fun Fact: Did you know "Manos" means hands in some other language (if someone could look up the language that word comes from that would be great). So technically the title is "Hands: The Hands of Fate"

Manos is a boring piece of crap. Plan 9 is a hilarious piece of crap. Manos is obviously worse.

That would be Spanish. That's one of the reasons why it's hard for me to recommend it* here. Also, the singular would be "mano" in both Spanish and Italian, but not the plural because that's "mani" in Italian.

*I know people who enjoy watching bad movies.

I love watching bad movies like Supergirl, Barb wire, From Justin To Kelly, The Room and a few others. Then again, I do have my limits. I have no interest in watching Jack and Jill or Movie 43 again.

Manos by far.... its much harder to sit through... while Plan 9 isn't so bad and even is Ed Woods best and most watchable movie...
