Exclusive – Laid to Rest: Exhumed Ready for Resurrection

Laid to Rest Exhumed

ChromeSkull is back and getting set to carve a path of bloody carnage through a set of fresh victims, proving once again you just can’t keep a good ghoul down for long! Read on for your first look and details on Laid to Rest: Exhumed.

The third installment in director Robert Green Hall’s hit modern horror ChromeSkull franchise will be titled Laid to Rest: Exhumed. The screenplay was written by Hall and is tightly under wraps, but we were able to squeeze out a little information about the highly anticipated sequel.

It’s not a straight sequel to ChromeSkull, nor is it an origin story, but it will satisfy people who want to know more about Chromey’s mysterious motivations,” said Hall. “This one is for those who are looking for a non-stop chase movie that never lets up with even more jaw-dropping unmatched death scenes. In fact, I’ll go on record saying that this will be the biggest and best of the franchise and will probably be THE GORIEST FILM OF ALL TIME. I was determined not to do this one until we had the proper budget to do it right.

Robert Hall’s PostHuman Fx will be creating gore and hybrid VFX as was done in the previous installments.

Speaking of budget, Hall says they will be kicking off an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign in early September to procure additional funds to ensure the retro, yet innovative death scenes and gore are on full display. Details on if Anchor Bay will be back for distribution are vague, but Hall says, “We will be in good hands and are shooting in 4K for upcoming streaming platforms hungry for 4K and beyond content. We will be shooting independent with private equity and the crowd sourcing and as always will be open for distribution talks when we begin shooting.

Fans can rejoice that ChromeSkull will once again be portrayed by the indomitable Nick Principe; however, Hall was tight-lipped about the rest of the cast.

Laid to Rest: Exhumed will begin principal photography in December in northern Alabama.

Watch a City Come Together and a Monster Created in These Videos From The Sinking City

Published

on

I’ve been keeping a very close eye on Frogwares’ The Sinking City, which is a 3rd person horror adventure that takes place in a world that is as inspired by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes as it is by H.P. Lovecraft and his eldritch terrors. While still early in development, the team is beginning to share some pretty incredible things out of their offices (like these creepy statues) to keep the public up-to-date as well as show them just how much work goes into creating something so expansive and fascinating.

Today, I want to bring you a taste of the world that Frogwares is building through two videos. The first shows the process by which they created the actual city that the game takes place in. Obviously trying to hand create each and every building is a tedious process at best, nigh-well impossible task at its most realistic. Rather than attempt such a monumental undertaking, the team created a program that will build the city based on criteria that they set forth. It’s a very clever solution to a very real problem and the end result still feels like their personal touch is all over it.

The second video is a 3D time lapse of a monster as it goes from rough shape to a highly detailed, grotesquely designed monstrosity that is nothing short of nightmarish. It’s a chance to see how an artist creates something phenomenal from something so simple, each step adding a new layer of sickening, yet fascinating, macabre horror.
