The best part about this job is the little twitter I get in my stomach whenever someone whose work I’m a fan of gets in touch with me to talk about their upcoming work. That happened today when Larry Blamire from The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra fame shot me an email.
If you’ve never seen Lost Skeleton, you’re missing out on one of the best film parodies of all time. If you’ve never heard of it the internet has failed you. If you’ve never wanted to see it you have no soul and/or sense of humor, and probably like to touch kids. We reported the news of a sequel last December, and they’ve been hard at work filming that sucker. Evidence of that is in the five new teaser trailers that are available online (with the promise of more on the way!)
Check those out right here. My favorite by far is #4, because in the first Kro-Bar and Lattis had the best b-movie dialogue and back and forth. “Aliens? Us? Is this one of your Earth jokes?”
One thing the footage shows off is that it’s not trying to replicate that low budget b-movie feel anymore, instead going for a more polished studio b-movie. At least the script’s still perfect. And it’s obvious that some of the more deceased characters (besides teh titular skeleton) will be returning as well…. perhaps we’ll get a new rock dance.
More as we hear it!
