Everybody is doin' the creeping terror!
Vic Savage was an infinitely worse person than Ed Wood, Creeping Terror is fat worse than Plan 9, and the only reason he isn’t as beloved as Ed Wood is largely because his intensely abusive heterosexuality kept him off the list of camp icons.

Which is sad because Vic Savage was an actual party boy for awhile and sucked more than a few dicks to make his movie.
Ed Wood is beloved because he was a sincere guy who made very sincerely bad movies. He meant well, and he put everything into it.

Vic Savage, not so much.

How cynical were his movies on a scale of 1 to Amazing Bulk?

1) Filmed at Spahn Ranch. MNR approval right there.

2) He sold the film to investors based on the script by Robert Silliphant, writer of several Twilight Zone episodes. But it turned out it was actually his older brother, Allen Silliphant, who wrote it. Robert Silliphant was credited as the writer.

3) Savage's wife wrote a tell-all biography that delves deep into his sex life and drug abuse. He worked as a male sex worker to raise funds for his movie. There's a pretty good movie that was made recently called "The Creep Behind The Camera", with interviews with people who worked on the movie (including the author of this fun little number).

4) It's oddly sincere, but nothing about this movie makes sense.

John Holmes Motherfucker
Ed Wood was a natural artist, in the same way that children are natural artists. Plan Nine is a Tragicomic masterpiece about a chaotic universe where stupid aliens attempt to save the universe from the stupid earth people, and fail spectacularly (and stupidly), leaving the universe still heading toward destruction at the story's end. My favourite scene is the one where two earth officers listen to a taped message from the alien commander, who explains the aliens' mission quite clearly, but the senior earth officer ends the scene by the junior earth officer to "find out what the hell they want!".

The incompetence of the film just underlines the great themes that were expressed not by Ed Wood, but by his uncredited collaborator, CHAOS.

I can really appreciate the air around the instruments.
I used to not care for this music, but compared to some other Z-grade film soundtracks it is a delight. Consider the dreadful non-stop repetitive piano and Spanish guitar that plays throughout "The Mesa of Lost Women", a black and white cheapie released in 1953 - which was taken on by Rifftrax a few years back.
