Delivers laughs most of the way through.

Variety
Affectionate spoof merits appreciation as a not-so-dumb salute to another era's ultra-dumb genre conventions.
63
A terrifyingly cheap-looking B-movie comedy mocking terrifyingly cheap-looking science-fiction B-movies. As such things go, this one has its moments.
60
As deliberately silly as the film is, it is very knowing and carefully thought out.

The Hollywood Reporter
Writer-director Larry Blamire has clearly done his homework, and his playful cast nails the requisite acting-so-bad-it's-good pitch.

Village Voice
Skeleton may be 100 percent cult-in-a-can, but aficionados should feel sated. All others are advised to bring copious amounts of controlled substances.
50
Intended as a parody of B-movie fantasies from the '50s, this satire more directly lampoons kiddie thrillers like "Captain Video," putting it perilously close to the pop-culture trash it aims to mock.
40
Film Threat
A spot-on homage/parody of bad 1950's sci-fi movies.

L.A. Weekly
It’s amusing, but it also eventually becomes tedious, like a comedy sketch that milks a good joke just a little too long.
20
The A.V. Club
There's "so bad it's good," but there's also "just plain bad," and Skeleton's pre-processed shittiness spoils the fun.
