Exclusive: MPAA Not Happy With ChromeSkull: Laid to Rest 2; Badass New Image!
Forget Jason, Freddy, Michael, and all of the rest. There is only one group out there who knows how to cut deeper than anyone else, the MPAA. Recently Rob Hall's upcoming film ChromeSkull: Laid to Rest 2 went before them, and guess what?!?
They immediately slapped the movie with the dreaded NC-17 rating. Having already seen the movie, I can tell you as a fact there's no way this wasn't going to happen. LTR 2 is riddled with some of the most insane bits of violence and kills we've ever seen. Not kidding either. This flick is NUTS, and we love it!
When reached for comment about the rating, director Hall chimed in with the following ...
"I think it's great the MPAA had a problem with almost every kill in the film", says Hall. "If they didn't, we wouldn't have done our jobs correctly. They have a job to do, and so do I ... and luckily Image has been super supportive and has committed to releasing the film UNRATED and on Blu-ray, which makes me happy. Just to clarify, there will be a rated R cut as well, but I think most outlets will prefer the hardcore unrated cut ... I know I do."
Directed by Robert Hall and produced by Chang Tseng and Kevin Bocarde, ChromeSkull: Laid to Rest 2 stars Brian Austin Green ("90210", "The Sarah Connor Chronicles"), Owain Yeoman (Troy, "The Mentalist"), Thomas Dekker (A Nightmare on Elm Street 2010, "The Sarah Connor Chronicles"), Mimi Michaels ("Savage County", Boogeyman 3), Nick Principe (Hatchet 2, Madison County), Danielle Harris (Rob Zombie’s Halloween, Hatchet 2), Gail O’Grady ("NYPD Blue"), Chris Nelson (Kill Bill), Brett Wagner (The Crazies), and Aimee Lynn Chadwick (Return of the Living Dead: Necropolis).

Look for the ultra-violent sequel on September 20th, 2011. Keep it locked right here in terms of the whens and the wheres. When we know, you'll know!
ChromeSkull: Laid to Rest 2 picks up three months after we last left ChromeSkull (Principe) at the end of the original Laid to Rest. Tommy (Dekker), who’s struggling to come to terms with his encounter with the masked killer, has now gone missing courtesy of the maniacal Preston (Green), a mysterious player in the sequel with a sinister connection to ChromeSkull. Meanwhile, our killer has set his sights on a new girl, Jess (Michaels), and after the young girl disappears, Detective King (Yeoman) must race against the clock to find her and Tommy before it’s too late and try to put an end to ChromeSkull’s deadly legacy.
