'Plan 9 from Outer Space' coming in 3-D: Brilliant or bonkers?

I can’t bring myself to agree, as long as there are projects like this to be had: 1959’s Plan 9 from Outer Space, cult auteur Ed Wood’s infamous “worst movie ever,” is being converted to a full-color 3-D version. It might even screen in theaters.

Why is this great news? Because if ever a movie deserved to be doused in 3-D cheese, it’s Plan 9. Just imagine that wooden acting and those cheap-o effects in three vivid dimensions and a rainbow of colors. Plan 9’s unintentional hilarity can only improve by being taken further over the top. The more ridiculously grandiose the format, the better.

Or have I lost my mind? Am I the only person who would totally buy tickets for Plan 9 in 3-D?
