ChromeSkull is back, more polished and given time to shine.
A sequel to Laid To Rest, the 2009 slasher movie that introduced us to the vicious killer ChromeSkull, this movie will appeal most of all to anyone who may have thought that the first movie accidentally veered too close to reality in one or two instances.
After the events of the first movie we see a clean up happening and ChromeSkull being taken away. It turns out that he's part of some shady organisation that actually allows him to kill and have his fun. This is bad news for his latest target, Jess (Mimi Michaels).
Robert Hall returns to direct his creation (he shares the writing duties this time with Kevin Bocarde) and certainly compensates for a lack of believability with an added sense of scope and self-importance. The story developed around the ChromeSkull character is both intriguing and yet completely unnecessary (unless a third part is planned to truly wrap things up and provide even more details).
The cast are a real mixed bag. Mimi Michaels is, to be fair, not given much to do with her leading role and suffers because of it. Thomas Dekker does well, Brian Austin Green has a lot of fun, genre fave Danielle Harris gets just enough screen time to please fans and Owain Yeoman, Gail O'Grady and Johnathon Schaech do as they're instructed.
The death scenes here are, once again, the real highlight with a great mix of gore FX on screen. But even these moments are ruined when, in the second half of the movie, things become almost laughable as ChromeSkull defeats multiple threats around him with a mix of luck and supernatural skill.
Like many sequels, this is a distinct step down from the first movie. Which was no gold-plated classic in the first place.
