Laid to Rest (2009)

There is nothing like a mindless gorefest to liven a dreary day. Leaving Pennsylvania and heading to North Carolina (via Virginia), one could hope for sunshine at the beach. Unfortunately, it is more gray skies and rain. To try to liven the day, I decided on the indie flick Laid to Rest for my viewing pleasure.
Plot/ A terrifying story of a young girl who wakes up in a casket with a traumatic head injury and no memory of her identity. She quickly realizes she was abducted by a Deranged Serial Murderer and in an isolated rural town she must survive the night and outsmart the technologically inclined killer who is hell-bent on finishing what he started.
You know when you watch a movie because you are in the mood for something mindless with blood and guts; well I found the flick for you. After watching this one, the blood, guts and gore quickly come out along with some of the better kill scenes in some time. Sure it has some uneven acting, some strange twists and there is very little character development, but that is to be expected. What was really bad was the scripting, some of that just made no sense and at times actually detracted from the overall feel. In the end, if you are looking for a mindless gorefest, this one is for you. Check it out!
