    Okay so reviewing this film from memory yesterday made me want to watch it, which today I have done. And honestly I forgot how much fun some of the gore is here. I think I undersold Laid to Rest a little. It's still not amazing, and I more or less stand by what I said about it being paradoxically good and bad, but this most recent re-watch might be the one that finally gets me to watch the sequel.

    Well executed low-budget Slasher film that is a fine throwback to the genres heyday. This film boasts a sick, demented and brutal killer that belongs in the same category as Jason Voorhees, Michael Myers and Freddy Kruger. This film is perfect for people for an effective and brutal slasher where it showcases a brand new killer, instead of giving us the same old horror icons in disappointing remakes. For those looking for a bloody good time, then this is the film to check out. The picture has its flaws, but it does what many remakes fail to do, and that's to entertain the viewer. The film does rely on the classic Slasher film formula, but gives it a modern twist and it pays off. Acting wise, the actors aren't the best, but who cares? They're meant to be the victims here and get killed off. They won't win any Oscars any time soon. Chromeskull is an effective killer that belong in the horror killer hall of fame, he is one of the best on-screen killers in recent memory. Director Robert Hall direction is impressive, and though Laid to Rest is short on great plot, it more than makes up for it with bloody, gross kills that will certainly make horror fans relish. What's great with this film is that no specific motive is given to the killer in order to kill. Every other killer in the Slasher genre back in the day seemed to have a motive, Jason Voorhees wanted revenge for the death of his mom, Freddy Krueger wanted to punish the kids of the parents to kill him and so on. Michael Myers had to kill his sister to make the voices in his head stop. However with Chromeskull no reason is given and I think it adds a lot more to the enjoyment of the film as it makes you wonder what his motives are. This is a very entertaining horror film that should be seen if you're tired by the countless uninspired films in the genre.

    Lacked sense as well as the brains of it's characters. If they'd given even just one character common sense, then everything shouldn't have happened. The protagonist was annoying as hell and her entourage was as dumb as hell as well. It has a lot of potential though they've thrown it into the pit of stupidity.

    Brutal horror fun. A mental in a chrome skull is responsible for several murders and now he's after a young woman who escaped his evil clutches. The girl in question wakes up in a coffin with no idea who she is or how she got there. When she manages to escape you know its only a matter of time before she gets tracked down. Cue plenty of tension, gore and the odd bit of sly humour as the girl meets a couple of would be helpers along the way but you generally get the feeling they're doomed! This is a bit like a homage to 80's slasher films and doesn't try to be to be to clever like alot of the "torture porn" horrors nowadays but instead goes straight for beautiful brutality. With a pretty cool twist towards the end to, along with a great performance from Bobbi Sue Luther, Laid to Rest could definately become a cult classic.
