Horror Case Files: Laid to Rest (2009)

ChromeSkull FishingLaid to Rest

I actually found this at my local closing Blockbuster. What’s not to check out. A slasher film with the killer wearing a chrome skull mask for under $2. Too scared to watch it? The Horror Case Files reveal the background story, kill count, most creative kill, the killer(s), and what happened to the killer(s). WARNING! SPOILERS if you continue.


A girl wakes up in a coffin with amnesia to find a killer chasing her.

Kill Count

10 people

Most Creative Kill

Death by tire repair foam in the ear, until his face exploded exploded

The Killer

Don’t know too much a killer. All we know that he wears a chrome skull mask, doesn’t talk, and likes to kill pretty women while filming it. Our killer seems to be a regular human, meaning no super powers or being an undead creature.

What Happened to the Killer

He unwittingly put on his mask that one of his victims put a super adhesive on. The adhesive ate away at his face and then the amnesia girl smashed his face with a bat.

Horror Case Files Verdict

It wasn’t bad. It had some character developement and you cared to happened to them. It started a little slow, but found a nice pace and kept it steady. The kills will make the gore hounds happy. No CGI. Not the greatest, but a pleasant surprise for a $2 DVD.

Random Info I got from this File:
  • Don’t load your gun around mutilated bodies
  • Ask for help quietly, especially if the killer is in the same building
  • Always check what you put in your mask
File Status: 7 out of 10
