Plan 9 from outer space by Edward D Wood( Visual )

50 editions published between 1900 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 868 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ed Wood's cult classic has been hailed as the worst film of all time, but it's one of the most hilariously entertaining movies you'll ever see. Aliens fear the human race will develop a deadly 'solaranite bomb'. After eight failed attempts, Plan 9 is their scheme to reanimate earth's dead to build a zombie army and stop the earthlings from destroying the universe. With string-powered flying saucers, twisted alien logic and "priceless" special effects, it's a movie mission destined for success-or not!"--Container

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Maila Nurmi took to the TV airwaves in 1954 as the prototypical gothic scream queen Vampira, a national craze was set off. An instant icon of female power and sexuality, Vampira drew some of the most revolutionary figures of the day to her creator. At various times Maila's intimates included James Dean, Elvis Presley and Marlon Brando, among many others. But the woman behind the facade was both far more intricate and much more fragile than the character that made her famous

The paths of the black-hearted cop and the black-gloved stalker converge when Culloran's wife is assaulted by the criminal, becomes pregnant and, not knowing which man is the father, must decide whether or not to keep the baby
American scary( Visual )

2 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

American Scary is a look at the nation's tradition of horror hosting, from Zacherley to A. Ghastlee Ghoul. Hosts of all kinds were once a staple of television, and especially local television productions. But as production demands and the availability of cheaper syndicated material changed the local TV business model, local hosts were also one of the first things to go, no matter how popular they were with the viewing public. With interviews and footage from major hosts from the 1950s to the present day, such as Zacherley, Vampira, Ghoulardi and others, along with memories from celebrities and fans who were influenced by these hosts, you'll follow this American folk art form from its glamorous beginnings, through repeated waves of popularity in the 1960s and 1970s, to its scrappy resurgence and survival in the current age of cable access and the Internet. American Scary looks to remind people how much fun local TV could be - and maybe could be again. -- Cinema Libre Studio
