This is a great "80's slasher movie" and introduces a memorable killer by the name of Chrome Skull.
I loved director Robert Hall's LIGHTNING BUG, though that was a drama about a kid who wanted to be a makeup effects guy. If you're looking for the same tone, you'll be disappointed, but if you're looking for plenty of slaughter and gore, then LAID TO REST will definitely please.
The movie begins with a young woman waking up in a coffin, with no memory whatsoever of who she is or how she got there. And, of course, this Chrome faced killer is fixated on her for some reason. She manages to get away from him and is picked up by a good samaritan, who takes her home. The guy's wife (Lena Headey) doesn't trust her at first, but soon comes to realize that she's indeed in need of help. But the mysterious Chrome Skull shows up and starts the killing, which never relents until the end of the movie. And many of these slayings are truly brutal.
I liked it that the movie ends the killer in such a way as to make it impossible for him to return, unless he comes back as the headless horseman.
There's also an entertaining cameo by Johnathan Schaech and Thomas Dekker (TERMINATOR: SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES) shows up at the end of the movie.
