Good but a bit awkward
15 June 2012 | by (US) – See all my reviews

I accidentally found Lost Skeleton of Cadavera while channel surfing one day. It became one of my top five favorite movies. I anxiously awaited Lost Skeleton Returns Again and found it to be trying hard to recapture the magic of its predecessor. Trail of the Screaming Forehead seemed to me to be doing the same. I did get a few chucks and one or two "laugh out louds" but I think that was because I knew what to expect. Now I get Larry Blamire and his "so stupid its funny" approach, however in this movie sometimes it worked and sometimes it just didn't. The actors seem less straight faced and tend to get a bit silly at times, even leaving the motivation within motivation that the actors used in Lost Skeleton (Andrew Parks is quoted as saying he imagined himself as an actor who viewed as his most important roll ever).

All thing considered I did enjoy the movie because this is the kind of humor that I enjoy. It will have a cult following I'm sure, and I will watch it again just to notice those little gems I'd missed the first time, just like the first two that I've seen.
