Default Chromeskull: Laid to Rest 2 (2011)

Chromeskull has been given a NC17 rating in the US
People who have seen it have said they are not surprised at the rating.

Wonder what the BBFC will make of it!

I enjoyed Laid to Rest it was one of the better modern horrors.

Agreed, "Laid to Rest" was ace, a very nice return to the slasher genre's essentials with a modern twist.

Had it come out in the 80's it would have gotten far more glowing reviews than in this age of endless nitpicking and moaning on the global net.... To criticise this for its "weak" plot and "shallow characters" (I thought them to be way over average in this sub genre) while simultanously getting all nostalgic about the likes of "Friday, the 13th Part III" or "The Burning" in the next sentence... Sometimes I just don't get the horror fanbase anymore, particularly when their attitude to new horror fare is concerned

Can't wait for the sequel

Yeah while I can understand why reviews didnt like it, I still think that for what it is it is quite good and well made

I'll have to catch the first LTR before giving the sequel a chance and i do think that Chromeskull's facial attire is pretty cool!
