Plan 9 Resurrected!

The Grandin Theater is in Roanoke, Virginia, which is about 30 miles from the town of Christiansburg, where I was born and raised. In my novel, Tamper, the town of Hansburg is based on Christiansburg (back in the 1700’s, Christiansburg was known as Hans Meadow). I’m fascinated by cheesy movies like Ed Wood’s Plan 9 From Outer Space and a fan of the movie Ed Wood with Johnny Depp. About 10 years ago I met the last surviving member of the original Plan 9 cast, Conrad Brooks at a horror/sci-fi/fantasy convention in Crystal City, Virginia called Monster Rally. Imagine my delight when I learned that a low-budget remake of Plan 9 was filmed in Roanoke and recently screened at the Grandin Theater!
