The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra (2001)

This completely mad movie is an attempt to bring back memories of the really bad horror / sci-fi movies of days gone by. It's endearingly daft and at times very funny, though not as funny as I'd been expecting.

Directed and written by (and also starring) Larry Blamire, it's a mixture of absurb stupidity and wry spoof. It doesn't always work, but overall I enjoyed it and may even search out the sequel. If you like movies that dare to be so bad they're good (and that is most definitely the intention here!), go for it.

Also starring Fay Masterson, Andrew Parks, Susan McConnell, Brian Howe, Jennifer Blaire, Dan Conroy, Robert Deveau, Darrin Reed and a skeleton.

Nominated for the 2005 Saturn Award in the DVD Release category.
