Exclusive: Set Visit, New Images, and Interviews: ChromeSkull: Laid to Rest 2

With director Rob Hall’s ChromeSkull: Laid To Rest 2 currently in post-production, we thought it time to bring you exclusive stills (see ‘em below) and news from our November 19, 2010, set visit to the Los Angeles production.

Also included are interviews from the same with co-writers Hall and Kevin Bocarde and principal cast members Thomas Dekker (A Nightmare on Elm Street 2010, “The Sarah Connor Chronicles”), Brian Austin Green (“The Sarah Connor Chronicles”), Mimi Michaels (Boogeyman 3) and “ChromeSkull” himself – actor, stuntman and tattooed bad-ass Nick Principe.

At the time shooting not far from Rob Hall’s Almost Human, Inc., studio in Eagle Rock, CA (the FX company that has delivered the makeup creations for such flicks as last year’s The Crazies, Paranormal Activity 2, Devil and countless more), the sequel to 2009’s Laid To Rest was in full swing just prior to the Thanksgiving holiday, with cast and crew prepping for a rather creative and gruesome in-camera decapitation shot.

The sequel, which commences three months after the original’s narrative, finds unlucky raver Tommy (Thomas Dekker) struggling to come to terms with his encounter with the masked killer – and now in the clutches of the maniacal Preston (Green), a mysterious player with a sinister connection to ChromeSkull. Throwing into the mix Jess (Michaels), a woman unfortunate enough to have attracted the attentions of the voyeuristic madman, and Detective King (actor Owain Yeoman), a man who works feverishly to unravel the continuing murder spree, ChromeSkull: Laid To Rest 2 is determined to expand Chromey’s universe (and from the clips we saw, it succeeds). Rounding out the cast are Danielle Harris (Rob Zombie’s Halloween, Hatchet II), Brett Wagner (The Crazies) and Aimee Lynn Chadwick (Return of the Living Dead: Necropolis).

Dread would like to thank Heather Wixson for her facilitation of the visit and Ryan Turek and Staci Layne Wilson for their ‘Wonder Triplets Activate’ cooperation.

      Dosen’t anyone know it’s hard to detect sarcasim through the typed word? Anyways how come these kinds of sequels get green lit right away…but for ICONS we love i.e. Jason, Freddie, Meyers, etc… We have to wait YEARS or bullshit remakes. This kinds of shit has me doped up to go to bed.

        Because this sort of movie is made for very little money and mainstream Hollywood doesn’t have it’s hand in the cookie jar.

        If this became popular after a theatrical release it would receive the same treatment F13th.

      Yet another slasher this year I don’t care to see.

      Yes, just what every single person on the planet who watched Laid to Rest has been requesting – A sequel. I hope to god the direct-to-video industry is ready to handle the massive demands…
