This sequel to Laid to Rest sees Nick Principe return as the frankly awesome looking villain ChromeSkull in his continued attempt to kill The Girl and her helper Tommy.
I was incredibly excited for Laid to Rest, but aside from insane kills it was a big let-down, unfortunately, ChromeSkull is more of the same. Robert Hall’s effects work is phenomenal and he has my respect for working hard and achieving what he has with these films, sadly impressive death scenes do not make a good film.
There’s not much of a story, you don’t care about any of the characters (people just show up and then die over and over) and there’s no resolution.
The film has a really good cast, brilliant effects work and an experienced pro at the helm but the pieces didn’t quite come together for me the way I had hoped. I’d still like to see more from Robert Hall however, as I feel he still has so much more to show us.
