This is a typical slasher movie. It pretty much follows the same formula that most movies of it's kind do... but that's not to its detriment. Laid To Rest is one fucked up, nasty and completely awesome slay fest. The gore is brutal and the suspense is tight. Best of all, here is a new killer that deserves to be included amongst the likes of Freddy, Jason, Michael Myers & co. His name is Chromeskull and he's one scary motherfucker. I had never heard of this until I saw it advertised in an industry magazine and I wonder how well it has fared internationally? No doubt it did the horror festival circuit and was released direct-to-dvd... but it has obviously been popular enough to warrant a sequel AND a prequel. I hope that Chromeskull becomes a franchise because I'm definitely up for more of his carnage!!!!! Kool Stuff!
