He tampered in God’s domain… And the world’s most lovable bad movie maker Edward D. Wood Jr. would have been 87 today if he hadn’t drunk himself to an early grave. But we still have his fabulously incompetent – but thoroughly fun – body of work to enjoy. “Plan 9 From Outer Space” may have been his masterwork, but “Bride of the Monster” is just as wonderfully bad and shouldn’t be overlooked. Because it’s not every day you get to see a Hollywood legend like Bela Lugosi wrestling a rubber octopus.
