Ernie Fosselius's Plan 9.1 Available on Amazon VOD!

You can rent or download Ernie "Hardware Wars" Fosselius's Plan 9.1 and the infamous Blooper Reel from Amazon VOD.

Plan 9.1: A Cheesy Hand-Made Tribute To Edward D. Wood Jr. By Ernie "Hardware Wars" Fosselius. Apprehensive Films proudly presents the official Edition of Ernie Fosselius' Plan 9.1 From Outer Space. WARNING! PUPPEPHOBIA ALERT! This DVD may frighten or traumatize children and some adults with good taste. May cause nightmares. Puppets are CREEPY and DISTURBING, although not nearly as much as the actual actors and filmmakers they represent. Plan 9.1 is not rated. May cause unusual cravings for better entertainment. Ask your doctor is P9.1 is right for you. DVD also includes Ed Wood's original Plan 9 From Outer Space feature film in its entirety! 7 REASONS NOT TO BUY THIS VOD! 1. Exaggertaed caricatures and gross misrepresentations of beloved screen stars. 2. Crudely carved, poorly constructed and ineptly manipulated wooden actors which may be lip-synching their dialogue. 3. A tasteless and vulgar travesty, full of slapstick and the lowest comedy bordering on satire. 4. Infantile, pointless and relentless needling of a well-liked cult classic film. 5. Irreverant and outrageously disrespectful mockery. Rude and crude cheap shots at performers who were only making an honest effort. 6. A mediocre recording of a hopelessly retro, low tech and totally analog puppet show that was incomprehensible in the first place. 7. It's just plain wrong! ERNIE FOSSELIUS has been making bad movies worse since 1977. With his ancient juvenile mind, he designed and hand-whittled the entire organic, hi-fiber cast in Ed Woodian style. He then built the stage, found an empty garage, and performed the show for two cats in the mircale of HIGH DEFinition.

The Reviews are In: Colony of the Dark, Crippled Masters 2 & 3, Why Lie? I Need a Drink

That's right the reviews are coming in fast and furious for the new Apprehensive Films titles.

Colony of the Dark:
"The one area in which this film succeeds the most are its oddly created special effects. That look crude and often call attention to themselves. And yet their gaudiness is exactly what makes them so appealing." -

Crippled Masters 2 & 3:
"Behold films that take both the buddy film genre and the kung-fu genre to strange new places. You don’t even have to be a card-carrying kung-fu fan to enjoy them. Fans of the weird or exploitation in general can surely catch a laugh and maybe even a thrill from these two movies." -

Why Lie? I Need a Drink:
"What a fascinating indie doc this is! When you’re done with this, you’ll no doubt have your opinion about the subject. It might even be different than the one you started out with. It might not. But I can pretty much guarantee you’ll be entertained and enlightened." -
