About the Movie
Remember the good old days when anyone with a camera, a few thousand bucks, and more ambition than talent could schlep up to Bronson Canyon and quickly make a cheap sci-fi/horror movie? Well, they're back! "The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra" is an affectionate, meticulous re-creation of those notoriously cheesy clunkers, as a gaggle of beloved stereotypes pursue "that rarest of all radioactive elements - atmosphereum." Writer/Director Larry Blamire heads a superb cast - including Fay Masterson (Eyes Wide Shut), Andrew Parks (Donnie Brasco), Brian Howe (Catch Me If You Can) and Jennifer Blaire (The Majestic) - that faced a daunting task: having to be brilliant and terrible at the same time! It's one of the most original, clever, and hilarious comedies to come along in eons of your Earth years!

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: A gray, unfunny parody of 1950's science fiction films.
Fresh: May not be for everyone, but for those who appreciate spot-on spoofs of the cheesiest of '50s sci-fi monster movies may find it an inspired delight.
Fresh: A '50s sci-fi spoof that's a silly hit to the funny bone.
Rotten: The makers of The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra can't quite live up to the 1950s-era B-movies that they parody.
So bad it's good. I laughed through the whole thing. It took me back to the "B" movies of the 50's & 60's. They didn't leave out any cliche'. If you don't get the joke...Oh Well...
Superlative Wonder of the Modern Age
