    The big dude (I kept thinking to myself) looked like Bill Goldberg with a cane...I shit you not. And it didn't hurt that the lead actress was hot (so was the chick in the car riding with that dude's brother that got slashed on her stomach.) I liked how the killer used the cell phone to talk and the kills were pretty effective.

    This is one of those movies with awesome gore death kills. Which seems to be the only thing going for it. The rest of the film was pure rotten garbage. It reminded me of Hatchet in many ways. The other thing that pissed me off was why did Bobbi Sue Luther not show us her tits? It's bad enough she can't fucking act. Her only talent are her over sized fake boobs. Oh and if you thought she sucked in this just wait for the Night Of the Demons remake! Oh and of course sense her hubby directed this so she had to pull a Sherri Moon too. :fuck:

    But see, Hatchet was good too...(at least I thought so). ;)

    Not even a boob shot from you would have saved this train wreck.

    Watched this the other night with a buddy. What a fucking joke! Horrendous acting and a terrible script. The lead "actress" was one of the worst I've seen in recent years. The film was full of plot holes. The kills were good, but a good film isn't made with gore alone. Bottom line: it's a useless piece of shit. I can think of a dozen slasher flicks I'd rather see than watch this one again.

    Just wait till the Night Of the Demons comes out. She is the lead in that film too. What a fucking no talent shit actress. She makes Sherri Moon look like an academy award winning actress.

    Picked this up the other night and found it to be no worse than many of the remakes making the rounds in the cinemas. Sure the acting was poor (the cast was made up of "buds" & "squeezes") The real star of the film was that Porn FX guy. (Really, his last name is Porn, forgot his first name...insert joke here) The gore was terrific, and it was certainly a film that accentuated the modern technology, from cellphones, the killer texting (OMG!! ) global tracking and video taping, welcome to the 2009 slasher film. The reveal at the end makes you look back and
    See how many people had to die to try to help save this cheap little whore.
    I can definitely see a L2R2 in our future.
    Now that "Chromeskull" had his entire face torn off, he would use the mask to hide his hideous visage.
    Loved the first deleted scene. For the price its worth it to show my "squeeze" the film and gross her out with the over the top gore.

    laid to rest was SOOOOO overated. it was only good for it's death scenes and great special effects. the lead actress, bobbi sue luther who is not the lead in the night of the demons remake by the way, wasn't bad. to be fair, she was okay and probably did just as good as any actress could've done with the part...I mean it's kinda hard to work with such a stupid script. seriously the dialogue in that movie was PAINFULLY bad. she was okay, hopefully she does better in the night of the demons remake, which i'm looking forward to

    Definitely overrated!! Not bad, but not great. As most people are saying, fantastic gore effects, but some definite script problems. A lot of technical crap that pissed me off too like:

    The girl had to wait 30 sec. to trace a call? What is this the 70s?? The guy didn't have a phone in his house, but he had an internet connection! It just so happens that the car has a governor on it?? The store clerk just keeps letting this guy come closer to him with a knife, instead of blowing him away? The guys in the store tell the lead actor not to shoot because he'll hit the ammo? You can't set off other ammo!! You really have to suspend your disbelief a lot in this film. Also, I needed to know a little more about this killer and why the hell is he so indestructable?? And why the hell couldn't we see his face until he had no face???

    Yeah I wasn't very impressed with this one either. The gore was pretty well done, though there are a couple of kills that were done pretty badly and there were some decent ideas. Too bad the characters were pretty much morons that I didn't care about (didn't help that the acting was bad) and the movie could've seriously used some editing. Too many throw away scenes/scenes that dragged. I was pretty bored throughout the movie actually. The brother's girlfriend was hot though.

    Pretty much the only reason to watch this are the kills.

    I'm confused? Who are you talking about? There were only 2 female leads.

    I know that was confusing...:)

    Early-ish in the movie, Lena Headey's brother shows up to check on her because he thinks her husband is cheating on her...he brings his gf with him. The girlfriend is hot. The girl who played her, Jana Kramer, was also the only good thing about Return of the Living Dead: Necropolis.

    Which makes it all the more ridiculous that at the beginning of the movie the lead actress is told by 911 that it'll take 30 seconds to trace the call. Even the most redneck police station in America has access to caller ID and a funeral home sure as shit wouldn't have an unlisted number! At the moment I'm only 20 minutes into the film and I don't know if I'll have the strength to finish it. This is just terrible! :lol:

    I picked this one up at Best Buy for $6.99!! For that price I was willing to endure anything just to see this thing. Everyone's complaint about the lead actress' acting ability is right on the mark. She really stinks! The good news is the other actors in the film do a more than adequate job, and the gore, as stated before, is top notch. I liked the movie because it had a unique killer and some interesting atmosphere. Thankfully the price tag I payed was right for what i got. Worth a rental ONLY if it's the Unrated version!

    This flick reminded me a lot of Phantasm for some reason(the abundance of metallic silver in the graveyard/funeral home setting,the heroine's flannel shirt ala Reggie Bannister,and the eclectic group of survivors,as in Lord Of The Dead are the elements I've been able to pick out).I really did like it tho'.

    Having set myself up to accept its limitations,(primarily Luther's one-note acting as others have pointed out, along with the weak ending that tried to channel Spiegel's Intruder,yet somehow failed)I was able to appreciate the stellar gore on display,small-town creepiness,and switcheroo performance from badass psychopath in Chaos,to hick with a heart of gold by Kevin Gage.I also loved the smartass rave dudes,rampant throat-sawings and the killer's text to "bring the tape now,bitch",which made me chuckle.Good film,could've certainly been better,had it not been rather disjointed,but what movie couldn't stand some form of improvement?

    Just watched this and I must say I'm still a little confused at what the overall point of the movie was. If it was to just have some straight up good gore then it succeeded. If there was supposed to be a sensible plot of any kind it failed miserably. Decent eye candy, but that was about it.
