Carnival of Doom's Creature Feature - Plan 9 From Outer Space

posted Apr 6, 2013, 6:22 AM by Gary Hasty   [ updated Apr 23, 2013, 9:53 AM ]

In California, an old man (Bela Lugosi) grieves the loss of his wife (Vampira) and on the next day he also dies. However, the space soldier Eros and her mate Tanna use an electric device to resurrect them both and the strong Inspector Clay (Tor Johnson) that was murdered by the couple. Their intention is not to conquest Earth but to stop mankind from developing the powerful bomb "Solobonite" that would threaten the universe. When the population of Hollywood and Washington DC sees flying saucers on the sky, a colonel, a police lieutenant, a commercial pilot, his wife and a policeman try to stop the aliens.

Confused? Yes, we all are.

Join us for for the Carnival of Doom's inaugural Creature Feature Friday, April 26th at The Annex (25 Powder Springs Street in historic Marietta Square) to witness the horror of Ed Wood's infamous Plan 9 From Outer Space. We've partnered with Next Stage Theatre Company to bring Marietta what has been deemed "the worst movie ever made" by the "worst director ever" in this presentation of a drive-in gone wrong. You're welcome. 

Join us for some pre-screening sideshow entertainment from the Carnival of Doom's friends Captain & Maybelle along with other carny folks. Sword swallowing, human blockhead and feats of wonder abound. For those 21 and over, Burnt Hickory Brewery will also be have samples available of their ONE NIGHT ONLY blood red Vampira craft beer. 

So hurry, hurry, hurry and get those tickets over at Only $12 for an evening we're sure you won't forget despite the therapy. Doors open at 9pm with show time at 10pm. Make it a perfect date night with your sweetie...or atleast an excellent relationship test.

Well, the Marietta Zombie Walk I believe was a success.  We brought out about double the original guesstimates tipping the scales at around 400-500 participants who filled several barrels with food for the living as well as monetary donations to MUST Ministries.  Leaned a lot and Year 2 will be so much more...
