Plan 10 from Outer Space ★½ 1995

The play on the infamous Ed Wood title is the only connection between the two fringe features as director Harris takes aim at his hometown of Salt Lake City, Utah. Heroine Lucinda (Russell) discovers a mysterious bronze plaque buried near the Great Salt Lake and uncovers a UFO conspiracy loosely conforming to Mormon mythology. There's a basic mass hysteria/alien invasion scene, cheesy special effects, dumb sexual humor, and not much else. 82m/C VHS . Stefene Russell, Pat Collins, Curtis James, Karen Black; D: Trent Harris; W: Trent Harris; C: Bryan Duggan; M: Fredric Myrow.
