Movie Info

A tongue-in-cheek jungle adventure shot in Super Skeletorama, director Larry Blamire's sequel to The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra follows Reet Pappin (Frank Dietz) deep into the Amazon in search of a priceless new mineral known as Jerranium 90. Venturing into the green inferno, Reet knows that in order to find the source of Jerranium 90, he will first have to find Dr. Paul Armstrong, a once-brilliant scientist turned cynical alcoholic. Finding Dr. Armstrong won't be easy, so in order to get the job done Reet invites Armstrong's wife Betty and Dr. Roger Fleming along for the mission. Later, it's revealed that Dr. Fleming has come into possession of an item that seems to belong to the Lost Skeleton of Cadavra, and the group ventures into the famed Valley of the Monsters, where they encounter a secluded breed of jungle-dwellers who may be able to help them find what they're searching for. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovimore

Tries much too hard to top its first act by hurling jokes at us that go on too long, are dragged through the dirt, or just aren't funny...

Audience Reviews for The Lost Skeleton Returns Again

While this is still plenty of fun, the jokes seem more jokey than in the original, or even "Trail of the Screaming Forehead." In the original, the humor came from the bad dialogue, whereas here the dialogue seems to make more self aware jokes. I dunno, I preferred the original's style. This one feels more like a parody, while the first felt like an humorous homage. Both are entertaining though. The cast is still great and I did enjoy the sort of King Kong-esque adventure aspect of the story, so I ultimately give it approval.

Ken Scheck

Not nearly as entertaining as the first one, but it still makes me laugh. Some wonderful callbacks to the original film ("Sounds in the jungle?") and all the same entertaining characters. If you like the original, definitely worth watching, but if you're choosing between the two, this one is the lesser.
