The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra

Snapshots In My Time...
Of My Time.....Hauntings.

Tonight I went over to a friends house and we saw the craziest movie. It was the Lost Skeleton of Cadavra. At first I was a little skeptical because it started out kind of slow. I thought it was really going to be a bust. Then it picked up and the 5 of us laughed out fool heads off.

It is an independent film spoofing 1950s era B-movies. It was videotaped on a budget of less than $100,000, and converted to black and white film in post-production. Actors were instructed to give wooden performances to help with the intentional cheesiness of the film. In total, it took five days to write, and just over 10 days to film.

Some of the best lines of the film are: fold yourself in the middle. We had to rewind and watch this line over and over it was so funny. Then the "tip, tip , tip , tip , tip" by Animala. We howled at that. The use of the "human whereabouter" was another hoot as well as the Amish terrariums. It was laugh out loud funny! You too can own it at home. It is available on DVD. Be sure to check it out.
