Genuinely cool b-film parody thats everything "Lost Skeleton of Cadavra" should have been
27 October 2007 | by (Worcester, MA) – See all my reviews

I mainly got this because I'm a huge fan of the garage rock legends The A-Bones, who appear in this film and rip out two great numbers. I was pleasantly surprised that the rest of the film is quite entertaining as well. Its a rockabilly parody of the vintage Juvenile Delinquency films thats so accurate its almost bizarre. One almost feels as if this wasn't meant to be a parody but an actual recreation of all those old schlocky flicks, right down to the casting of thirty year old teenagers. It may be a one joke idea, but its a genuinely cool film thats everything "The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra" should have been. The short running length of fifty minutes helps out a lot, as if this was any longer, it would've become rather tedious. The screenplay is jam packed with hilarious beatnik dialog. Its also made with a lot of enthusiasm that more than makes up for its complete absence of technical polish (which actually helps out the authentic nature). Plus, it helps that the soundtrack is positively superb, but I've come to expect that from anything involving the great Billy Miller and Miriam Linna (members of The A-Bones, heads of Kicks magazine and the great Norton Records). "I Was a Teenage Mummy" is a neat independent film that'll appeal to those with a taste for pre-British Invasion rock 'n' roll. (7/10)
