Boney Island - Sherman Oaks, CA

Not since Harryhausen did the SFX for Jason & The Argonauts have so many Skeletons been animated ( reanimated? ) without the benefit of CGI! The sheer number of Blow-Molded Boneheads living it up on Rick Polizzi's Lawn will leave you scratching your Skull while you grab your Jaw ( or somebody else's ) off the floor ... Everywhere you look there are Bluckies patching Carnival Rides, rigging Midway Games, or hawking various vacuformed Concessions; there's a Barker with a Plastic Hip, countless Freaks with flexible Femurs, even a Vinyl Musician playing his washboard Ribs ... It doesn't take a pair of X-Ray Gogs to see that the 9 Cauldron Water Feature is the certified, calcified show-stopper! And the 4-Story Haunted Treehouse with its Choir of Jack-O-Lanterns? Like all of Boney Island, it's as amazing as it is Humerus!!!
