Great gory sequel
25 May 2014 | by (US) – See all my reviews

Emergency personnel arrive to the scene after Laid To Rest ends. One girl escapes with a guy. There's some abusive guy in charge. He finds a phone which he'll use to track down the girl. But this isn't your regular emergency personnel. This is Chromeskull's crew. They operate on him to save his life and restore his face after he wore a skill full of acid. The guy, Preston, does track down the girl and slashes her up in Chromeskull fashion. In fact, he's sort of in charge of the organization while Chromeskull is recovering.

When the cops find the girl's remains they recognize the familiar pattern. Elsewhere, a girl is about to undergo surgery for her eyes, she's progressively losing her sight and one night parties with a friend, when Preston-as-Chromeskull arrives, kills the friend and grabs the girl and stashes her in a casket for the real Chromeskull to kill, who's doing better.

The cops investigate the girl's disappearance and find a video with Preston walking by. They bring the guy who drove the surviving girl to the station to identify the image. But Preston is also after this guy to tie up Chromeskull's loose ends. Later he kidnaps him and puts him in the same warehouse with the girl. The lame cops eventually make it to the place, just as Chromeskull is up and ready and not happy with Preston impersonating him.

Laid to Rest 2 is a great sequel. It's enjoyable when a crew learns and when a sequel for once improves on the original. Acting is better, direction is better, the special effects are truly spectacular and realistic. And they are all physical effects, no cheap CGI stuff, which is great because this movie is very gory. Some death scenes are striking but then there are others that are weak. The story is more elaborate and intriguing when it comes to Chromskull's mysterious organization. Unfortunately, locations are weak and they still struggled with telling the story. At some point this movie confines itself to some small dark warehouse and some tiny office as police station. And that's also when this movie runs out of steam. Preston is always whining and begging for forgiveness for something, we do not know what. The cops are an incompetent bunch. This movie, like the first, also has portions shot in POV for no good reason really. It doesn't add anything or improves things in any way. Overall a strong sequel. And at this pace, a third movie should be near A-movie quality. I just hope they get around to making more in the series as the idea and villain have a lot of potential.
