Arriving on both DVD and Blu-ray September 20, with screenings and festival showings beforehand, is Image Entertainment’s ChromeSkull: Laid to Rest 2 (set report), the sequel to Rob Hall’s the 2008 cult horror film Laid to Rest.
Starring Brian Austin Green (“Desperate Housewives”), Danielle Harris (Halloween II, Hatchet II, Stake Land), Johnathon Schaech (That Thing You Do, The Poker Club), Gail O’Grady (“NYPD Blue,” “Hellcats”), Owain Yeoman (“The Mentalist”), along with LTR 1 alums Thomas Dekker (“Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”) and Nick Principe as “ChromeSkull,” the sequel is once again directed by award-winning special effects makeup wizard Robert Hall, and co-written by Hall and Kevin Bocarde, who also co-produced.
“ChromeSkull: Laid to Rest 2 picks up three months after the end of the first film. Tommy (Dekker), who’s struggling with vivid memories of his first encounter with the masked killer, has been abducted by Preston (Green), who harbors a mysterious connection to ChromeSkull (Principe). Meanwhile, the technologically saavy slasher — he videotapes his victims as he’s killing them — has set his sights on Jess (Michaels), and after the young girl disappears, Detective King (Yeoman) races against time to find her and Tommy before it’s too late and try to put an end to ChromeSkull’s blood-soaked legacy.”
