Frequently Bought Together
The game of cat-and-mouse is on as Chromeskull’s assistant, Preston (Brian Austin Green, Desperate Housewives), scrambles to tie up the loose ends left behind after his deranged boss’s last killing spree. He finds that he likes taking care of business—maybe a little too much. One bloody mess leads to another and the bodies pile up in a visual feast of the most spectacular kills ever filmed. Thomas Dekker (A Nightmare on Elm Street), Danielle Harris (Hatchet II), and Owain Yeoman (The Mentalist), also star in the most brutal slasher film of the year. Chromeskull is back with a vengeance!
There is no question that Chromeskull, the killer from the first Laid to Rest movie, is angry; he's got a chrome mask painfully fused to his cranium, for starters, which could explain a lot of bad humor. In this sequel, Chromeskull has more victims to torment and a vast new array of ways to do his badness. Speaking of which, let's just jump to the film's main calling card: director Robert Hall, an accomplished make-up and F/X man, has devised some of the grisliest, most stomach-churning make-up effects in the slasher genre. If you've ever wondered what's inside a human head, this film will provide repeated viewings for your consideration. This gruesomeness is occasionally interrupted by a remarkably flimsy plot, the best of which features 90210 alum Brian Austin Green as Chromeskull's Igor character, an egotistical lackey who gets a little above his station (hint: when you submit yourself to a painful Chromeskull tattoo, you've lost perspective on your job). Green seems to be enjoying himself, which is more than you can say for the other folks wandering through this sadistic cleave-fest. --Robert Horton

Chromeskull'Laid To Rest 2' was confusing and muddled and completely wasted the talents of Danielle Harris by casting her in a role that was unnecessary and coma like in dialogue and acting.
One bright spot in the movie would be the gore and gore effects.They were done really well,not as well as the first but pretty close although they were abundant.
Also actress 'Brianne Davis' was great in her role as a nearly blind girl and 'damsel in distress',she was another bright spot.
Brian Austin Green was in my opinion another disappointment.His acting was lackluster and his performance added nothing to the film,an unknown with good acting skills would have served better.
The last 30 minutes really picked up and got me interested . Before that I was just going through the motions of watching and hoping it would get better or make more sense.
The ending was somewhat confusing but the very last scene was ironic and clever. If your a gore lover I strongly suggest you see it ,if you want a movie with really great concept and depth I suggest you see Stake land (which in my opinion includes Danielle Harris' best performance to date) or The Clinic.

Once I got over that, I have to ask...Seriously. If you are going to kidnap someone, wouldn't you think about checking them for a cell phone before you lock them up?
The cops have various clues and leads and are hunting down Chromeskull as he, or I should say his slightly inept apprentice, prepares his next victim.
If you watched the first one, and made it through 5 or so Saw movies, you don't need to be reading reviews, you know you are going to watch it anyway. If you haven't seen the first one, I would recommend watching it before attempting to watch this one.
F-bomb, shower nudity.
