4.0 out of 5 stars The Gore the Merrier! Don't forget the Extras... May 3, 2009
Format:DVD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Okay, let's face it: If you're thinking about watching a horror movie in the slasher subcategory, you're not searching for a think-piece on the dangers of unresolved Oedipal complexes. You're not looking for a movie to challenge your way of thinking. You watch these movies for lots of killing, bad acting, and the plot, there ever really a plot?

It'd be easy to say that Laid to Rest is another dime-a-dozen slasher movie, another entry into a misogynist genre that's been overdone since the late 1980's...but that would ignore the vast efforts put into it by the director, his wife, the cast, and the crew.

The Director: Robert Hall, owner of the special effects company Almost Human, made this film for two reasons. He wanted to make his first horror movie, and his wife needed her first starring role.

The Lead: Bobbi Sue Luther, to me, is known for her role in Star Trek: Enterprise as a green-skinned Orion Slave Girl. She's been in countless men's magazines, and even became the face of St. Pauli Girl beer in 2007. She also co-produced this movie.

The Film:

The movie starts off with a heavy metal riff, and we see an MTV-video style montage of young nubile women getting sliced up in various ways. We see events from the aspect of "The Girl", a young woman who wakes up in a coffin with no memory of who she is or how she got there. Over the course of this horrifying night she forms an alliance with two men, Tucker and Stephen, who do their best to protect her from our unrelenting antagonist, a killer known as Chrome Skull.

I was expecting a slaughter-fest, and I was not disappointed. Chrome Skull got to use a variety of weapons: a steel rod, a shotgun, tire sealant, and of course, his trademark brass knuckle knives.

4.0 out of 5 stars An ultra bloody, old school, enjoyable slasher April 22, 2009
Format:DVD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
What Laid to Rest lacks in terms of coherent story, it more than makes up for with inventive kills and ingenious practical gore effects. Bobbi Sue Luther stars as an amnesiac girl who wakes up in a coffin, only to find herself hunted down by a chrome-skull-faced killer with a video camera strapped to his shoulder. Soon enough, she finds herself taken in by a kindly couple (Kevin Gage, Lena Headey) and naturally, the killer isn't far behind. There are cameos and small roles featuring genre stalwarts like Richard Lynch, Johnathon Schaech, and Headey's Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles co-star Thomas Dekker, but what really makes Laid to Rest worthwhile is its no-holds barred attitude and fantastic gore effects that combine to make for some inventive and gross kills. Anchor Bay's DVD features are also worthwhile, including an interesting commentary from writer/director Robert Hall and Bobbi Sue Luther, who also co-produced the film; and a blooper reel that is actually funny. All in all, for die-hard slasher fans that are sick of all the crummy PG-13 teen horror flicks and sadistic but not scary torture flicks, Laid to Rest should definitely be right up your alley.

"I woke up... in a dead box... And the man tried to get me."

LAID TO REST: Bobbi Sue Luther plays a girl who wakes up sealed in a casket. Suffering from head trauma and memory loss, the girl soon finds herself running from a frightening figure in a metal skull mask with a video camera propped on his shoulder and wielding a scary big honking knife. Fleeing the funeral home, the girl does get help from several helpful strangers, but really that means fudge-all when it's an unstoppable killer hunting you down. So cue the vicious slashing, pour out the viscera, tally up the body count. Can the girl survive the night?

Okay, first, if you can get thru the exasperating opening sequence - in which the clearly disoriented girl actually has the sense to call 911 but then inadvertently causes the phone to disconnect before the dispatcher can trace the call - then you're in for a decent scarefest. During the Unholy Writers' Strike of 2007, f/x makeup artist Robert Hall put in the time to write the story to LAID TO REST and the result is fairly watchable stuff. I also dig that the atmosphere at times leaned towards the quirky (mostly in the scenes with Sean Whalen). The horror genre tropes are well covered, but the solid execution and the inclusion of several nice character moments elevate this one. The key players have more depth than are usually given in slasher flicks, although it's a bit jarring to see Kevin Gage landing the "good guy" part for once (and a "gutted good guy with a cane" part, at that; when I say "gutted" it's meant that he suffers a devastating loss, not that he has his guts spill out; that happens to someone else).

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best I've seen in a while June 1, 2009
By Deimos
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This horror film was great, it took me back to the 80's slasher heyday. The FX were amazing and amoung the most realistic I have ever seen and I have a horror film collection of 400+ films. Very well done totally classic, don't want to give anything away, I hope we get a sequel dispite the ending. Awesome flick!

4.0 out of 5 stars Better Than Your Worst Nightmare! April 21, 2009
I have read reviews that praise Laid to Rest as one of the best movies of its kind, while I have also read those that condemn it as one of the worst. Ultimately, with this movie most especially, it's all about what exactly one expects from a slasher film. If it's an information-rich plot that explains who the killer is, why he's killing and/or specifically why he kills who he kills, you will be sorely disappointed. Otherwise, I think you will be most highly pleased, as I was.

Laid to Rest, quite honestly, has some of the most brutal and graphic kill scenes I've ever seen in a slasher film. What's more is that these kill scenes are given more on-screen time for the viewer than those in most any other I've seen. The camera never cuts away too soon, and, for better worse, little is left to the imagination. For example, when a certain victim gets a knife through the head, the viewer sees a most uncommon amount of detail. When the knife is finally pulled out of the impaled head, the victim appears to be truly real, with bloodying eyes twitching, and skin on the head pulling and stretching, as the knife is removed. To be honest, I'm not even sure how they did it. Yes, one can quickly tell that director Robert Hall loves the genre with a passion, since he goes all out to satisfy his fellow fans. Such exceptional gratuitous detail is dished out more than once in Laid to Rest, as each victim is eliminated by Chrome Skull--the stylishly-masked psycho slasher. In other scenes a victim's head is filled with air, through his ear, via a tire flat-fixer, a woman's head is sawed off, and a man's face is literally chopped off of his head. Don't worry. I won't spoil everything. I'll leave the excessive details for you to witness yourself.
