Being a sci-fi fan, I can’t discount the importance the sometimes bad “B” movies from the 50’s and 60’s had in shaping the sci-fi we have today. Although many of these movies are obviously low budget, some of them are still pretty fun to watch. You can actually find a lot of these movies in the public domain for free.
Because these movies are public domain, the copyright have expired or for some other reason the movie is no longer copyright protected. You can actually do a Google Video search for some of these movies. Many of these movies are full-length.
Looking for a movie to watch right now? Plan 9 from Outer Space is a popular sci-fi classic that can be viewed right here. What is Plan 9 from Outer Space? The plot outline from the IMDB is:
“Can your heart stand the shocking facts about Graverobbers 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?”
Bored at home or have nothing to do at work? Watch the movie right now! Enjoy! Hopefully it isn’t too painful for you. 🙂 Remember, you can stop the movie at any time.
