10 years of Flick Filosopher: to geek, or not to geek

Gotta love the movies with the Mystery Science Theater built right in. From my review of The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra:

The geeky love, the wonderfully geeky love of bad B movies has now come full circle, from the unappreciated decades of the 1950s, 60s, 70s, and 80s, to their ascendancy to objects of derision and perverse fannish worship on the Satellite of Love, to today, with The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra, which affectionately apes the “genre” in all its awful, hilarious glory.

No, wait, excuse me: This just in: The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra is not a modern spoof, not a loving parody, not a larkish, prankish adventure in deliberately bad filmmaking. It is, in fact, a lost film dating from 1959 and recently found in pristine condition and presented to us, we completist film buffs, now as an historical document.
