Dir. by Larry Blamire

Larry Blamire is some kind of genius. Do you remember all those monster movies you watched on Saturday afternoons when you were a kid? The ones that later got the Mystery Science Theater 3,000 treatment? Well, Larry Blamire sure does, and I guess he misses ‘em ‘cause he done went and wrote his own.

Paul (Larry Blamire) is a Scientist who does Science about Meteors. Paul and Betty (Fay Masterson) head off to the cabin in the woods to find a meteor composed of Atmospherium! Alas, Dr. Roger Fleming (Brian Howe) is looking for the Lost Skeleton of Cadavara in order to help it take over the world! Meanwhile, a pair of aliens, Kro-bar (Andrew Parks) and Lattis (Susan McConnell), crash-land. Wouldn’t you know it but the mutant cage that holds their mutant breaks. Millions will die! Oh well…

The assorted loose cannons go about their merry way scheming to get a hold of the Atmospherium (a rare radioactive substance that emits radioactivity) in that Meteor! Dr. Fleming also has a date with Animala (Jennifer Blaire); a beautiful woman made from several woodland creatures. The lot of them have about the funniest dinner scene on film since The Cook, the Thief, his Wife, her Lover (I have a very inappropriate sense of humor). In the end Earthmen find that aliens aren’t so bad, and aliens discover that Earthmen aren’t just filthy monkey-people.

Anyway, Lost Skeleton of Cadavra is a spot on spoof of Z-movies that left me gasping for breath I was laughing so hard. Watch it Earthling.

JoygirlCommando here- I just wanted to add, this movie is wholesome enough to let the kids watch, but don't let that deter you!!! Lost Skeleton of Cadavra is to B SciFi what This Is Spinal Tap is to the Rockumentary.
