Synopsis: (from IMDb) A young girl who wakes up in a casket with a traumatic head injury and no memory of her identity. She quickly realizes she was abducted by a Deranged Serial Murderer and in an isolated rural town she must survive the night and outsmart the technologically inclined killer who is hellbent on finishing what he started.
My Quick Review: I did not care much about Laid To Rest. I’m actually surprised to see quite a few good reviews and even a strong fanbase of Chrome Skull lovers.
I have to admit though that the killer is quite iconic and his kills are extremely violent and graphic. But like a porno, there is nothing but air in between kill scenes, and those are too few to make up for the rest of the movie.
Laid to Rest has extremely bad acting (especially from the annoying lead character) and the script is so poor that I could hardly make it through to the end (I have to admit I actually fast forwarded some of it). Despite some OK make up effects and cool killer, I cannot recommend this movie, even for slasher or gorehound fans.
Many people compared this to Hatchet but, trust me, you’ll have more fun watching Hatchet (even the weaker third one) than Laid to Rest.
My Rating: 4/10
Director: Robert Hall
