    The photography, the dialogue, the acting, the script, the special effects and especially the props (such as a spaceship that looks like it would get a D in shop class) are all deliberately bad in the way that such films were bad when they were REALLY being made.
  2. Like all B-movies (or in this case, pseudo B-movies), "Skeleton" contains sparkling moments of promise and camp performance.
  3. 30
    Works just fine for the first half hour or so, but quickly devolves into a case of too much affection and not enough affliction.
  4. 30
    The question remains: why work so hard to make something deliberately bad, when the world is hardly running a shortage of mediocre movies?
  5. 30
    This didn't make me laugh much, but I liked the music, a patchwork of samples culled from the various atomic-monster epics.

    There's "so bad it's good," but there's also "just plain bad," and Skeleton's pre-processed shittiness spoils the fun.
