Expect yet more of the 'neo-Brechtian panache' (i.e. complete technical incompetence) that secured Wood his rep as the very worst of the worst.

As lame as 'Plan 9' and 'Glen or Glenda' but not quite as unintentionally funny.
Without Lugosi, Ed Wood's films don't amount to a lot.
So bad, it's good!
