THE LOST SKELETON OF CADAVRA (2001)
It's not unusual for movie fans of all kinds to engage in "Bad Movie Night," in which they gather together to watch a film that has become infamous for its incompetence and make fun of it. People enjoy this so much, the cult television show "Mystery Science Theater 3000" was able to run for eleven seasons by doing just that. For some, though, merely making fun of bad movies isn't enough. They need to actually try to produce one of their own. One of the more successful efforts is Larry Blamire's The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra. From the wooden acting to the hammy dialogue to the cut-rate art direction, The Lost Skeleton manages to approximate a 1950s B movie in a way that shows not only a canny knowledge of the subject, but a great deal of affection, as well.
