A Poor Sequel To Laid To Rest,
This review is from: Chromeskull: Laid to Rest 2 [DVD] (DVD)
I am a huge fan of Laid To Rest. Its old school, thrashy, bloody and heaps of fun.
Chromeskull was an instant horror Icon, and I couldn't wait for the sequel but I was hugely disappointed and bored by it.
The main problem with this stinker is the unforgivable fact that it takes all the focus of Chromeskull himself and instead focuses on a killer who wants to be the new Chromeskull.
Another huge problem is that it shows that our shiny faced killer works for some sort of company and even has Danielle Harris on the payroll to shine his mask.
The acting in this film is just awful. The first Laid To Rest was no Oscar winner, but the cast in this film is laughable and the dialogue is hilarious. The direction is horrible and it looks like some scenes were filmed on a late 90s camera phone.
The death scenes are pretty gosh darn gory and the make-up work is as excellent as the first- very little CGI here.
Throw is an absolutely awful ending and what you have here is a truly bad sequel that isn't worth your time.
I give this film 2 stars- 1 for having the beautiful Danielle Harris in it, and the other for the film being so bad, its almost fun.
