ChromeSkull is back, proving you just can’t keep a good horror icon buried. Read on for your first look and details on LAID TO REST: EXHUMED.
Robert Green Hall’s third entry for the series is tightly under wraps, but news has escaped and the bogeyman has risen.
“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.
