Lost Skeleton is clever at spoofing B-movies, but the joke isn't sustainable for its running time.

    00s filmed but its trying to be a 50s sci movie filmed in black and white. but a very tounge in cheek script, hammy acting and playing up the plots and script writing of the time, its enjoyable and there certainly are cracking lines and situations to enjoy, its not entirely sucessful in whats its doing but a interesting concept to go for.

    This would have made an excellent 11 minute SNL sketch.

    Ever since I first saw the trailer for this (around 2001?) I had wanted to see it. Since then I often had trouble remembering the name of it, but I finally found it after over 7 years. It was very funny, although a bit boring at parts, but I think it was supposed to be. I watch a lot of old sci-fi and horror movies as well so I liked the way it made fun of them. Usually I hate parody/spoof things, but this one was really good. Pretty much 95% of the dialogue can be quoted in daily life and would make for amusing conversation. A quotable movie is always a good movie. I almost wet my pants at "I sleep now". Some of it was too obvious and a bit lame, but mostly it was fun. But anyway, it's worth seeing, especially if you've actually watched older sci-fi and horror (like 50's etc).

    Mostly funny sendup of 50's Sci-Fi films is not as quirky or as witty as the similarly influenced 'Invasion!' but it still makes for a nice companion piece.
