New slasher icon tries to remain a cut above the rest.
2 October 2011 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

Written and directed by Robert Hall, Laid To Rest is a reasonably enjoyable slasher movie that benefits from some great gore FX and an iconic villain (Chromeskull, played by Nick Principe) but suffers from mounting implausibility and characters who never seem to do anything that makes sense.

Things don't take long to start at all as a girl (the very attractive Bobbi Sue Luther) wakes up in a coffin and then frees herself. She doesn't know where she is or why she is in such a state, she just knows that someone wants her dead. A vicious killer who wears a chrome skull mask. Seeking help, the girl encounters the kindly Tucker (Kevin Gage) and brings a whole heap of trouble down upon their heads.

Dispensing with such trivialities as logic, believability and motivation, Robert Hall presents Laid To Rest as a kind of mixtape of the best bits of slasher movies, the stylised moments of insanely violent death. Unfortunately, the filler material around these moments is a bit dull and repetitive.

The cast all do relatively well with what they're given but suffer from the poor writing and character development. Bobbi Sue Luther may be a lovely woman but her character starts to become very annoying as she makes one bad decision after another. The same goes for Kevin Gage's character. And Sean Whalen (playing Steven, another character dragged into the madness). In fact, the only two on screen who don't become irritating aren't on screen for all that long (which is, perhaps, the secret) - the lovely Lena Headey and the talented young Thomas Dekker.

The fact that we also have a killer who is supernaturally in the right place at the right time but can never seem to make the killing blow when it comes to "the girl" he has in his sights and you have a slasher movie that represents both the best and the worst of the subgenre.
