The link below takes you to my review of Laid To Rest, a nasty little horror movie that I heaped praise upon. And now, Chromeskull: Laid To Rest 2... I stand by my original declaration that this is one hell of an exciting and welcome movie-monster. He makes Jason Vorhees seem like Bear Grylls. The first movie was surprisingly brutal and grotesque and the ante is upped ten fold in this gruesome and depraved sequel. The movie opens up at the precise frame which the first one ended on. Its an exact continuation, however the sub-genre has shifted. The first movie was a slasher flick whereas this falls into that whole torture porn thing... think Hostel meets Saw. It didn't resonate with me as much and the story becomes convoluted with a secret organisation type of subplot. Now there's some kind of purpose behind Chromskull which involves a network of players. This element lost me and there's a lot of unanswered questions which will no doubt be covered with the next instalment. I much preferred this dude when he was on a simple killing spree. Nevertheless I give it credit for not rehashing the same formula. The gore is insane and the kills are creative and the movie looks good. All of the actors also do their bit to carry this above the average mediocre genre film... 90's heartthrob Brian Austin Green actually gives a solid maniacal performance as one of the organisations members. If you're a horror fan then the Chromeskull movies are WELL worth having in your collection. Part 2 doesn't hit every note but it still delivers the goods. I ♥ this guy!
