Larry Blamire and Friends Return Again!
30 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Larry Blamire and his cast of familiar goons are a very select few that I follow in Hollywood regularly. I am yet to be disappointed.

Lost Skeleton Returns Again matches the same level of deadpan humor and creative caliber of hilarity. Dr. Paul Armstrong is stricken with bitterness towards his love of science. Animalia returns thanks to the transforming ray of the lovely aliens, Kro-Bar and Lattis. Dan Roebuck (LOST), Trish Geiger, Alison Martin, and the others are great additions to the established cast.

As far as sequels goes, it doesn't get must better than Returns Again. Blamire skillfully reintroduces the old characters with amusing twists while keeping true to their lovable personalities. The new characters are a great asset to the film as well. The storyline is cleverly crafted all the way to the end.

What about the new monsters? They are simply amazing. The costumes are exactly what you would expect after watching The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra with some improvements.

The Special effects got a face-lift in the sequel. After watching the special features, I found out the special effects were also homemade! Quite impressive! Get this movie! Watch it over and over! This humor is appropriate for the whole family. This rare jewel of a film is a great follow-up to the original and will keep you laughing until the end.
