The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra (2001)

Science fiction flicks from the 50’s and early 60’s are a guilty pleasure of mine. We don’t watch a ton, but I’ve got more than a few under my belt. Certainly, though, I haven’t seen as many as Larry Blamire, the brains behind The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra, a campy satire of science-y proportions.



Dr. Paul Armstrong and his lovely wife Betty are traveling to the middle of nowhere so he can study a freshly-landed meteor. The meteor is, he believes, loaded with atmosphereum. This mother-lode of the element will do great things for humanity! But it’s also what Dr. Roger Fleming needs to resurrect the lost skeleton of Cadavra so, together, they can rule the world! But it doesn’t stop there, oh no my friends, because the aliens Kro-Bar and Lattis also need atmosphereum to fix their spaceship so they can go home!



This movie is right on the money. If you’ve ever seen any old sci-fi flick, you’ll definitely laugh along with Blamire’s jokes. The damsels in distress, the scientist married to science, the goofy aliens trying to pass as humans, the evil, greedy bad guys, and all the rest. Thoroughly and hilariously entertaining!

Damsels in distress and MUTANTS!
