The Chronicles of Horror Movie Night: Chromeskull: Laid to Rest 2 (2011)

Posted by:

After starting in Washington D.C. nine years ago Horror Movie Night has expanded to include chapters in Austin, Dallas and Chicago. Horror’s Not Dead’s own Brian Kelley is the originator and programmer of this illustrious weekly Wednesday night tradition which features a “classic” horror film. Each week I will be reviewing/commenting on the past week’s selection so do your best to find the film, most of which have not made it past VHS, and follow along. Better yet, start your own chapter!

Halloween is over once again and I’m sad. Don’t worry about me though, this happens every year. The one time of the year where the general public embraces horror and scary things is a joyous one and now we have to ready ourselves for family and to be filled with holiday cheer. Blech! Sounds horrible doesn’t it?

This also means it’ll be another year before we get to have the next HMN Halloween Edition. The main differences between this week and every other in the year is that this is one of the few films that is kept secret until it gets close and it is usually a newer film. Something easier to get a hold of, and on DVD no less. This year a few films were discussed but we opted for one that no one had seen and that we were guaranteed to be full of some kickass gore. We were right. Robert Hall’s sequel to his shiny slasher was on the docket and Chromeskull: Laid to Rest 2 delivered the gruesome goods in spades. The rest of the film might be a little light on freshness, or explanation, but every gorehound’s eyeballs will be screaming in joy.
