Jennifer Blaire shows up again as Animala, the sexy animial hybrid. Ms Blaire is a hoot as the sexy alien.
Of course, the movie would not be complete with out the Skeleton. He is pretty much only a skull in this movie, but his lines are perfect.
Not every one is going to get some of the sly humor in this movie. Some of the gags only fans of 50 sci fi movies are going to get. But everyone will enjoy the antics of the cast. The Queen of the Cantaloupe People's Dance is worth the price of the DVD.
Larry Blamire's direction and writing are spot on. The Black and White look of the film is perfect for this kind of send up and Blamire uses it perfectly.
For a pre order the cost of a lunch buffet at a Chinese buffet, Return of the Lost Skeleton is a good deal. I have sure already ordered mine.
The Lost Skeleton Returns Again takes such conventions as 1) show a part of the monster - a claw, a shadow, a left-over body part - early in the film, but 2) don't reveal the entire monster until near the end for the final battle. Add a surfeit of 3) cheesy dialogue, blandly nuanced performances, scenes which tell but don't show, plus lots of filler to stretch it out to feature length...voila... you've got a perfect Saturday matinee monster movie.
Sure, there were classics like The Incredible Shrinking Man, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, and the Hammer Films, but we still loved those B & W sci-fi, nuclear radiation, giant monster movies. For 25 cents my parents had the greatest weekend babysitter of all time - the Saturday matinee. My brother and I could sit through a double feature twice, especially if Harryhausen's The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad was playing.
Once, I had to take him out in the lobby when he got scared during Killers from Space - remember the aliens with the black dots painted on ping pong ball eyes?. We screamed "MUSH!" if Robin Hood kissed Maid Marion, or laughed at Danny Kaye in The Court Jester, or watched a baby colt being born in Gallant Bess. But, most of all, we loved monster movies.

Larry somehow accomplishes this. Time and time again.
Had the original Lost Skeleton of Cadavra come out in the 50's, it would have fit right in with Plan 9 From Outer Space and the like. The difference of course is that unlike Plan 9, Skeleton is funny ON PURPOSE. Blamire's prodigious wit is off the charts and he knows the material he is parodying better than most. Nearly every single line is hilarious and quotable. It's truly one of those movies that gives you something new every time you watch it. To quote Beetlejuice "it keeps gettin' funnier, EVERY SINGLE TIME I SEE IT!"
So here we have the much awaited sequel to "The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra" entitled "The Lost Skeleton Returns Again". The insane dialog that sounds as if it was written 60 years ago, the purposeful "bad acting" and all the characters and actors from the original are back in force here. But that's not to say that this movie is simply a retread of the original, far from it. This sequel is less of a 50's Sci-Fi parody and more of a 50's Jungle Adventure parody, complete with an embittered, drunk of a hero, a quest for some fictional ore, and some really silly natives. Monsters, space aliens, good twins (not evil), cantaloupes, temples, idols, and a sarcastic jerk of a skull complete the recipe. By the end, you too will be singing the name of Fleming.
Granted, not every movie goer will "get" this film, it's definitely not for everyone.Read more ›
I was blown away by the sheer comedic brilliance of Larry and the gang. They put the fun in funny and the funny in funnytastic.
The Lost Skeleton Returns Again is indeed one of the smartest stupidest movies of all time.
Larry's films are an important part of an unbalanced breakfast, so buy yourself a box of Skelet-O's and chow down.

Another zany entry in the spoofs of old Z grade sci fi movies. Really, whether it deserves a +5 or -100 rating sort of depends on your relationship to these old wheezers. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Timothy P. Scott

|Trail of the Screaming Forehead||
I was at a double-feature of this and Dark and Story Night a couple of days ago in West Hollywood, and much of the cast was there to answer questions. According to the producer, Trail of the Screaming Forehead has not yet been released, but they are working hard to get it out to the public.
