Yoinked from wikipedia and my own badass movie knowledge ...
"I Woke Up Early The Day I Died is 1998 American thriller/comedy film written by Edward D. Wood, Jr. It was the last full script he wrote before his death. The movie, produced two decades after Edward D. Wood Jr.'s death, was aimed at being a tribute to him. The producers of this film used many techniques that Wood himself would use, such as including stock footage to save filming expenses.
The entire film is silent except for music and incidental sounds. The film, directed by Aris Iliopulos, features a MASSIVE CAST which includes Billy Zane, Tippi Hedren, Ron Perlman, Christina Ricci, Leif Garret, Eartha Kitt (whose name appears on a theater marque in Ed's Plan 9), Maila Nurmi (Vampira), Will Patton, Tara Reid, John Ritter, Jonathan Taylor Thomas, Steven Weber, and many others.
This film marks Vampira's last film appearance.
The film earned rave reviews internationally and was released on VHS in Germany. However, the film company went bankrupt shortly after the film's premiere in New York, making this film widely unseen."
