A girl wakes up in a casket, and has to try to find out what happenend to her. A deranged serial-killer called “Chromeskull” is determined to finnish what he started, whatever the cost. Game on!

Yes, yes, yes! It’s a crappy plot with a lot of stupid dialogue, poor character development and so on… But how is the new slasher-monster working? He’s doing ok. Combined with a fine use of violence and bloodshed (and very nice FX), this flick is pretty entertaining and gory. It feels very cheap, and it probably is, but it’s got something fresh to it, and this b-movie addict had a fun time. I’ll give it a good B-score, and look forward to the next chapter in the saga.
