Another Send-Up From the "ID" of Dr. Morbius?
29 October 2013 | by (Pasto, Colombia) – See all my reviews

No, I'm not trying to take any of the credit for this film...Just making a reference to my #1 review of ALIEN TRESPASS. My calling card, so to speak, on this sub-genre. Some of the things mentioned there do apply here, so I'll make an effort to focus on the elements that make RETURNS AGAIN different.

First, let me specify, 7 3/4 Stars, to be precise. From the same group of 50's low-budget Sci-Fi aficionados who brought us the definitive genre benchmark: LOST SKELETON OF CADAVERA. Seeing the original first will probably enhance your enjoyment of this commendable second offering, but by no means is indispensable. For anyone out there really to savor this one, to fully appreciate the subtleties (or intentional lack thereof) of every deadpan line in every scene, you must be among those of us who couldn't get enough of the schlocky 50's/early 60's originals!

That having been said, RETURNS AGAIN does begin to wear thin at times. The redundant title foreshadows what we all have seen time and again: Excessive reliance on recycling bits from the original. However, there were enough cleverly conceived and well-executed new nuggets to make it well worth your while and provide you with quite an entertaining 90 minutes... .....ENJOY/DISFRUTELA!

Any comments, questions or observations, in English or Español, are most welcome!
