"Greetings, my friends! We are all interested in the Future, for that is where you and I are going to spend the rest of our lives! And remember my friends; Future events such as these will affect you in the Future! You are interested in the unknown, the mysterious, the unexplainable; that is why you are here! And now for the first time we are bringing to you the full story of what happened on that faithful day! We are giving you all the evidence, based only on the secret testimonies of the miserable souls who survived this terrifying ordeal! The incidents, the places, my friends, we can not keep this a secret any longer; let us punish the guilty, let us reward the innocent!. My friends, can your heart stand the shocking facts about the grave robbers from outer space?"

While investigating reports of shambling undead ghouls wandering the local cemetery attacking passers by, police detective Lieutenant Harper and airline pilot Jeff Trent stumble upon a flying saucer hiding on a nearby hill shrouded in mist. Creeping inside, they discover the sinister force behind the raising of the ghouls: the paranoid, infantile alien commander Eros and his long-suffering lieutenant Tanna. Eros is enraged with the people of earth for failing to realize the existence of alien life (despite aliens such as Eros having deliberately done everything in their power to avoid being detected), and has convinced himself that earth's scientists are on the verge of creating something he calls a "solaranite bomb", which can "explode the actual particles of sunlight" and will do anything to stop that from happening, even if it means destroying the earth. Can our unlikely heroes put a stop to Eros's sinister Plan 9 from Outer Space.

Inspired by Ed Wood's cult classic Plan 9 from Outer Space, widely considered to be one of the worst movies ever made.

Please note that while I checked "Yes, my work is based on someone else’s intellectual property" because Plan 9 from Outer Space isn't my own creation, it is currently in the public domain and therefore not actually anyone's intellectual property, so no license is required.

"My friend, you have seen this incident, based on sworn testimony. Can you prove that it didn't happen? Perhaps on your way home, someone will pass you in the dark, and you will never know it, for they will be from outer space. Many scientists believe that another world is watching us this moment. We once laughed at the horseless carriage, the aeroplane, the telephone, the electric light, vitamins, radio, and even television! And now some of us laugh at outer space. God help us... in the Future!"
