When we last saw the titular bony nemesis of Larry Blamire's very funny horror spoof "The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra" (2004), he was lying at the bottom of a ravine, busted to bits after a fierce duke-out with the Marvan mutant. Fortunately, for fans of needless sequels, the bony one's skull apparently survived the brawl, and so is able to cause even more mischief in 2009's "The Lost Skeleton Returns Again." Also reprising roles from the original film is writerdirector Blamire himself as scientist guy Paul Armstrong, as well as Fay Masterson as his loyal wife Betty; Susan McConnell and Andrew Parks as the Marvan aliens Lattis and Kro-Bar; Jennifer Blaire as the reanimated, sexy animal girl Animala; and Dan Conroy and Brian Howe, playing twin brothers (!) of characters in the first film. Whereas that original picture had been a spot-on satire of such beloved but awful horror films as "Plan 9..." and especially "Robot Monster"--even going so far as to film much of its footage in Bronson Canyon--"Returns Again" is more a spoof of the '50s jungle safari picture. Here, two teams race through the Amazon to find the superrare mineral Jerranium-90, guarded by the Cantaloupe People in the Valley of the Monsters. The sequel ups the ante of the first film with three times the monstrous creations (I love that Magraclops!), a larger cast and, in its latter half, a switch to color film! Shot on the cheap, the picture nevertheless boasts some impressive FX, such as that forced-perspective shot of the Cantaloupes' temple. The film is also a lot sillier than the first, if possible, but is often quite funny. The performers seem to be having a great time on camera, and do not play it quite as "straight" as in the first picture. And just wait till you see Alison Martin--who plays Chinfa, the Queen of the Cantaloupe People--make her speeches and wrap her mind around the concept of the double negative! Funny stuff, indeed. Bottom line: If you enjoyed "The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra," you should have a good time with this one. The ingestion of several cocktails before venturing in is strongly advised....
