Lost Skeleton of Cadavra, The (2003)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger
11.25.04

Lost Skeleton of Cadavra, The (2003) I generally enjoy spoof/homages to old sci-fi and horror films, so this movie already had a plus going for it. The title sequence reminded me of that of a William Castle movie-and the flick itself in the realm of ROBOT MONSTER and Ed Wood films. The story is about a meteographer (a scientist who studies meteors, he explains) and his wife who go to the mountains to find atmospherium, which has come down from a meteor years before. This substance is a huge power source. During the first night they are at the cabin they see another meteor fall in the distance-which isn't a meteor at all but an alien rocketship which has crash landed. Aboard are two human looking aliens dressed in silver clothes. When we see the wide-shot of the rocket it purposely looks like a cheap model, not quite matching the exterior prop of its doorway in the close up shots with the actors. These aliens need the atmospherium in order to re-power their craft.In the meantime, another scientist is searching for the Lost Skeleton of Cadavra, which is not-too well hidden in a cave. He needs the atmospherium in order to bring the skeleton to life and therefore be able to rule the world. There's also this three-eyed mutant wandering around the woods, killing people such as Ranger Brad. This mutant turns out to be the aliens' pet. Oh, and there's the cat-woman, Animila, created from the shooting the alien's ray gun at some forest animals. She becomes the sidekick of the evil scientist.The evil scientist manages to resurrect the skeleton by placing the atmospherium meteor in its rib cage. It rises up, still a skeleton, and starts talking. Every attempt is made to show the strings making it move.The dialogue is stiff and overly redundant, definitely a contender for MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATRE 3000.If you're in the mood for something truly silly and nostalgic check this out.
