October 11th: Chromeskull: Laid To Rest 2 (2011)
Barely alive after his confrontation with The Girl (Allison Kyler) and Tommy (Thomas Dekker), ChromeSkull (Nick Principe) is taken out of police custody by a mysterious group of people working for him, led by the psychotic Preston (Brian Austin Green). Using metal plates and artificial skin grafts, surgeons manage to reconstruct ChromeSkull's mangled face, while Preston hunts down and guts The Girl in an act of revenge.
As a fan of slasher films, it's become downright depressing to look at the modern crop of slashers, almost all of which are either gritty Platinum Dunes remakes, PG-13 Lifetime movies or cruddy independent films made for five cents. Given that, I always appreciate it when a good one comes out these days and Robert Hall's Laid To Rest is arguably one of the best slashers films in recent memory, alongside Scott Glosserman's Behind The Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon.
Next Up: October 12th: Night of The Demons 3 (1997)
