Laid to Rest: Exhumed is a forthcoming American slasher horror feature film written and directed by Robert Hall (Laid to Rest and its 2011 sequel; Fear Clinic; Lightning Bug).
The production apparently has funding in place, however, a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo sought additional funds to go towards the practical effects, which will again be handled by SFX expert Hall. Nick Principe (The 27 Club; Sky Sharks; The Black Room; Restoration) will return to play ChromeSkull.
Robert Hall explained: “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. 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. 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 crowdsourcing and as always will be open for distribution talks when we begin shooting.
We set the bar really high with some of the best and most realistic practical FX death scenes and need to ensure we have the budget to top ourselves with the most brutal instalment yet.”
