Consensus: Lost Skeleton is clever at spoofing B-movies, but the joke isn't sustainable for its running time.

It's all great fun, and Blamire has at least as promising a future as all this nonsense.

It's not really cheese, it's Velveeta. As many who have tried have learned, midnight movies can not be manufactured, they must be discovered.

Obey the skeleton. Forget all about Mesa of Lost Women. This is the one you've been looking for.

A well-engineered B-Movie. It's quite funny in parts. Intentionally cheap and cheesy. The actors did well to ham up their roles. I got a bit bored with how… More

I love these soft earth funnels.

Has its moments, but gets kinda tiresome after a while.
