Now this looks bloody amazing and I must say that I am very very excited about seeing this! I did post a teaser trailer for this sequel a little while back, and even though the teaser was pretty cool, this brand new full trailer is stunning. It looks incredibly violent and horrendously nasty. According to Dread Central, the movie contains some of the “most insane kills” they’ve ever seen. The original Laid to Rest was a good horror, although not perfect and looked rather cheap. Clearly a lot of money has been injected into this sequel and the production and effects looks much better.
This sequel is directed by Robert Hall, who also co-wrote the film with Kevin Bocarde. Danielle Harris stars alongside Brian Austin Green (90210), Owain Yeoman (Troy), Thomas Dekker (Nightmare on Elm St remake) and Mimi Michaels (Savage County). Here is the synopsis:
ChromeSkull: Laid to Rest 2 picks up three months after we last left ChromeSkull (Principe) at the end of the original Laid to Rest. Tommy (Dekker), who’s struggling to come to terms with his encounter with the masked killer, has now gone missing courtesy of the maniacal Preston (Green), a mysterious player in the sequel with a sinister connection to ChromeSkull. Meanwhile, our killer has set his sights on a new girl, Jess (Michaels), and after the young girl disappears, Detective King (Yeoman) must race against the clock to find her and Tommy before it’s too late and try to put an end to ChromeSkull’s deadly legacy.
The film is due out in the US on October 31st.
