Okay it is my fault for not reading reviews that said it was over the top hokey before watching the film. Little did I know that what was supposed to be a 50s spoof was just plain goofy as they tried too hard to be campy.
Unfortunately they try way too hard at this spoofing thing and it comes out ridiculously unfunny. However I am a brave soul so I went through the whole movie waiting for that little piece of redeeming social value. I even sat on my hands so I would not press the fast forward button.
They did include many of the proper characters such as Paul the scientist and Betty wife of scientist. Then there is the infamous Dr. Roger Fleming the mad scientist. Toss in aliens, a mutant, and a mysterious girl that know how to act with her tongue.
While most of the things that we here are clichés and purposely stilted dialogue every once in a while we catch a line from a famous movie. I am wondering how many lines I just did not realize were from famous movies? Such as when Kro-Bar (Andrew Parks) exclaims ""You know it's funny but in a strange way I feel almost at home here." well close to a enough to Forbidden planet.
It is the fifties and different factions each are searching for an element called atmosphereium. Each for his/her/its own purpose. Who winds and will alliances help in the struggle to obtain this rare and potentially dangerous element?
Some of what sounds at first as rhetorical gobbledygook actually borders on Shakespeare.
The best actor is The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra. But I was mesmerized by the slinky dancing of Animala (Jennifer Blaire.)
If you recognize the environment it was filmed at Bronson Canyon, Griffith Park - 4730 Crystal Springs Drive, Los Angeles, California, USA (the location of Robot Monster ) and Lake Arrowhead, San Bernardino National Forest, California, USA.
