The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra (2004) is an independent film spoofing 1950s era B-movies. Mad scientists, bug-eyed monsters, alien invaders, and black-clad women who perform interpretive dances battle for center stage in this parody of ’50s sci-fi flicks. Dr. Paul Armstrong (Larry Blamire) is a scientist studying alien rock formations that have crashed to Earth. When Armstrong and his wife Betty (Fay Masterson) learn that a cache of Atmospherium, a radioactive mineral found in meteorites, has been found in the desert, he sets out to find it, but he has competition; Dr. Fleming (Brian Howe), a rival scientist who plans to use the high-powered substance to bring a cave-dwelling creature back to life. Meanwhile, Lattis (Susan McConnell) and Kro-Bar (Andrew Parks) are aliens from the planet Marva who have crash-landed on Earth and need Atomspherium to get their spacecraft back in the air. Hoping to foil the plans of Dr. Armstrong, and aware of the arrival of the aliens, Fleming steals a “Transmutaron” from Kro-Bar that allows him to create Animala (Jennifer Blaire), a sultry neo-beatnik who will crash the Armstrong’s cocktail party and sow the seeds of marital discord between Paul and Betty, making it easier for Fleming to recover the valuable rock formations.
“I expected to be frightened on my wedding night, but nothing like this!”
The Eye Creatures (1965) is a science-fiction film about an invasion of an unnamed American countryside by a flying saucer and its silent, shambling alien occupants. The Eye Creatures don’t really attack anybody, but are attacked by a band of hostile teenagers. It all begins when the creatures, acting out of self-preservation, try to pin the blame for an accidental killing on an innocent Earthling. Star John Ashley sagaciously retreated to the Philippines shortly after appearing in this one. This one was a remake of 1957′s Invasion of the Saucer Men, minus the earlier film’s clever monster designs by the resourceful Paul Blaisdell.
