Mover over “Sharknado” there’s a new king of kitsch in the monster movie market: “The Beaster Bunny.” Billed as the “greatest Easter horror film ever released,” this one might make you want to burrow back into your basket.
Campy and cringe-worthy, “Beaster Bunny” follows in the paw print of other springtime spook stories like “Kottentail,” “The Night Before Easter,” “Easter Bunny Kill! Kill!” “Easter Casket,” and “Peter Rottentail.” Originally entitled “Beaster Day: Here Comes Petter Cottonhell,” the 87 minute monster movie is written and directed by the Snygg Brothers.
“A giant bloodthirsty Easter bunny starts viciously killing the local townsfolk. When the Mayor refuses to act and the attacks grow more gruesome, the town finds its very survival in the hands of a wannabe actress and a crazy dog-catcher. “ –IMDB
This parody of “Here Comes Peter Cottontail” is just one of a basket full of eerie Easter dark delights. For a fear-filled diversion to hunting for eggs, chew on your chocolate to any of the bad bunny b-movies found on this list.
Usually the “B” in “B-movies” means “budget,” in the case of “Beaster Bunny,” bad comes to mind, but the same thing can be said about “Sharknado” and there were three sequels. Though, for those looking for an absurd amusement tied to Easter, this might be your golden egg (don’t say you weren’t warned).
