4.0 out of 5 stars Now it is time for the cantaloupe dance! 1 May 2011
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Cower in fear, mortals! The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra may have been smashed to bits in the last movie, but now he returns! Again!

And this time instead of all-American B-movies, the spoofery is aimed at those jungle adventure/"lost world" movies. "The Lost Skeleton Returns Again" brings back everyone (and I do mean everyone) from the previous movie, and while it's not as hilarious as the first movie, it's still a fun little parody with flying skulls, monsters and lots of science.

Military man Pappin (Frank Dietz) arrives at the house of Betty Armstrong (Fay Masterson), only to find out that her husband has been missing in the jungles of the Amazon for two years. So Betty (in full Crocker regalia) and Pappin head off to South America to find Paul (Larry Blamire) who is now an embittered drunk. But he agrees to help find Geranium 90, a vital... rock that can only be found deep in the jungle.

At the same time, Kro-Bar (Andrew Parks) and Lattis (Susan McConnell) have returned to Earth, since their danger detector alerted them to... Betty and Paul being in danger. So they pose as humans and join a crooked expedition that also wants Geranium 90. And Peter Fleming (Brian Howe) finds a mysterious skull amongst his late brother's belongings, and it compels him to go to South America so it can regain its body by using a magical idol.

As the two groups move through the jungle, towards the Valley of the Monsters (no, this doesn't really alarm them), they must fight their way through the deadly prehistoric flora and fauna. And finally they must encounter the Cantaloupe People, and the monster that hides their ancient idol... whose name escapes me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surreal nostalgia throwback 11 Sep 2011
By Zaroff
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Either you know what you're getting with these 'kind of movies', or you already have it, in which case subtle surreal wordplay regarding this auteur & his ensembles output will be as lost on you as an aardvark in an alphabet.

Some people just get on the wavelength & tune into his brand of deliberate pastiche humour with a knowing nod and a groan of contentment, wise to the knowing in-jokes of bygone eras of less seriously smooth film fodder, well aware of the quality of silliness thats an artform in itself. Others leave by the fire-door in a hurry, covered in a hail of popcorn having forgotten to wear appropriate trousers.

There is one lapse in this particular movie, the dance of the native woman went on way too long. Way too long, longer than any way should have gone, a lot longer than a native would have gone for real. And she was a woman, which i can scarce believe.
For that i remove a single star.

Check out his other works, which are similarly low budget but excellently shot, full of very few people, and actors that really do know how to do their job, acting. Plots that recall old 50's or even older flicks that once harmed televisions on a saturday afternoon..

If you found my pedantic or persistent prattling annoying in any way in this particular review then best avoid this movie, cos to be honest its almost certainly hinting at a similar vein of self-aware sensible nonsense. This man has it in spades..if only we knew what It was. To be enjoyed with fish.

5.0 out of 5 stars I got to see it at Wonderfest last year. 26 April 2010
By Wayne H. Walls - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Lost Skeleton returns is a great movie. Its a silly send up of the Jungle action movies of the '50s and its a great send up too. Most of you favorite characters are back from the first movie and a few new ones show up for even more crazyness.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars I hope lost skeleton returns...again and again. 10 Aug 2010
By Richard Rockwell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Having been raised on the monster movies of the 50's, I have a deep appreciation for their cornball appeal. At night in our bunk beds, my brother and I would take turns quizzing one another about how various monsters (e.g. Invaders from Mars, The Thing, The Mole People, Attack of the Crab Monsters, This Island Earth, Tarantula, The Amazing Colossal Man, The Monolith Monsters, The Giant Claw, etc.) were finally vanquished by the earthlings under attack.

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.

Thanks to the inspired writer, cast and crew of The Lost Skeleton Returns AGAIN. I laughed aloud and was transported back to those joyous days of my childhood. Kudos for an affectionate knowing spoof of the genre. I'm not going to provide any SPOILERS since we've all seen this movie a thousand times already. Lost Skeleton gets its homage to matinees right; it is really twisted in a fun way. Many returns.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh Larry, you had me at "Science" 23 Aug 2010
By Steve Vortex - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
First let me say that I am a big fan of Larry Blamire. I think that he is one on the greatest satirists to ever work in the film industry. I say this because there are few satire films that can actually hold up as one of the films they are parodying, had they come out in the same time.

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. Larry unabashedly produces the films he wants to, for a very specific audience. If you liked the original or enjoy films of the 50's then you owe it to yourself to see this movie. MST3K fans will also eat this stuff up.

I know that I personally will be buying anything that come from the twisted mind of Mr. Blamire.

Thanks for the laughs Larry, keep em coming!

5.0 out of 5 stars Skele-tons of fun 18 Aug 2010
By Jeremy C. Shipp - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My wife and I just finished watching the film, and I'm happy to say that we had skele-tons of fun. We laughed, we giggled, we chortled. I even shot milk out of my nose a few times, and I wasn't drinking milk at the time, so that's saying something.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely fantastic! 30 Aug 2010
By G. Singleton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I was already a fan of "The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra" and had high hopes for this sequel. Thankfully, this film was absolutely a fantastic send-up of 50's adventure films and a great sequel to the original film.

It has the same tone, the same send-up of the genre it both adores and pokes fun at, and the same hilarious dialogue. Seriously, if you don't find these lines absolutely side-splitting, then I am going to have to accuse you of not knowing and/or understanding the films that are being appreciated and parodied by this wonderful work. The lines and the way they are delivered - that's the true gold of this film.

Look, personally, I'm not a fan of Hollywood funny. Mostly because it's funny once (if that) and then simply disposable. Blamire's films are absolutely quotable and hilarious every single time you watch them. They are the inside joke with your friends. They are the movies that you'll want to get a group of disparate acquaintances together to watch so that they can all have that one touchstone to refer to. They are fantastic. (And they are clean enough to watch with children which is amazing in its own right!!! btw- I don't have kids, so it wouldn't make much difference to me either way)

Seriously, after being turned on to the original, I couldn't be happier. Blamire & company give me hope that there are people out there who understand what it is to make a hilarious movie THAT I WANT TO OWN AND WATCH OVER AND OVER AGAIN.

So, do yourself a great favor and check this and Blamire's other movies out....

Oh, and a little self-promotion: [...]
