Chromeskull returns in Laid to Rest II
Robert Hall's Laid to Rest was one of those under-the-radar horror films that kicked some serious ass. Now Bloody Disgusting is reporting that Hall is bringing his brutal would-be-horror icon back for another go-around.
Chromeskull: Laid to Rest II begins filming Nov. 1. Hall penned the script with producing partner Kevin Bocarde. Hall, Bocarde and Chang Tseng are producing the film under their Dry County Entertainment banner.
Returning for the sequel are original Laid to Rest stars Thomas Dekker (A Nightmare on Elm Street) and Nick Principe, who once again dons the familiar mask of Chromeskull. Although casting is still underway, the film already boasts a line-up of stars including Brian Austin Green (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, 90210), Michael Biehn (Aliens, The Victim), Christopher Nelson (Kill Bill: Volume 1, The Tripper), Jennifer Blanc (Bereavement, The Victim) and Danielle Harris (Halloween, Stakeland, Hatchet 2).
Writer/director Robert Hall introduced Chromeskull, the mysterious and relentless killer who hunts down young women and records their grisly demises while donning a silver skull mask and video camera, in 2009. And while it may have seemed like Chromeskull was dead at the end of the first film, every horror fan knows evil never dies.
Shawn and I really dug Laid to Rest, which has some of the best kills ever put on film, and highly recommend it to horror fans. We await the sequel!!
