RiffTrax: Plan 9 from Outer Space LIVE! Nashville 2009 (2010)
RiffTrax, as I’m sure we all know by now, is the post-Mystery Science Theater 3000 project starring Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy, and Bill Corbett. It started out as a purely downloadable form of entertainment, but has since grown popular enough to sell real, physical DVDs. These include RiffTrax Shorts Volume 1, previously reviewed on this site, as well as our current subject, RiffTrax: Plan 9 from Outer Space LIVE! Nashville 2009.
Yes, not only is RiffTrax popular enough to produce real DVDs, but they’ve also earned the clout to put on live shows out in the real world, giving their fans a rare excuse to actually leave their homes. In 2009, a live event was staged in Nashville, Tennessee and broadcast to theaters all across the country, featuring the RiffTraxers (RiffTraxians?) taking on one of the most infamous “bad” movies of all time, Ed Wood’s Plan 9 from Outer Space. And as you may have already guessed from the title, this DVD is a document of that event.
