Shakespeare’s Plan 12 from Outer Space

Alternative title
Shakespeare’s Plan 10 from Outer Space
Synopsis
Cult fiction film blending Twelfth Night with a no-budget science fiction film to create a Shakespearean parody. "William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, re-imagined in a child’s vision of Hell. Shakespeare’s Plan 12 from Outer Space’ is a festive yarn, comprised of the most homely and vulgar materials, while shamelessly thwarted buy the Bard’s coarsest of jokes and grossest buffoonery" [IMDb synopsis supplied by the director]. Stewart uses many effects to give the film a hallucinogenic feel and a laugh track reminiscent of television comedy.
