It is a pleasant surprise when a technically advanced filmmaker stays within the horror genre, and in some cases takes it to a whole new level. Independent horror films, let’s face it, are for the most part a beginner’s genre. A group of friends get together and come up with a scary story, or a slasher, and shoot. Most don’t make out for the best films, technically that is, though some have great stories and concepts. But when a filmmaker such as Bunny The Killer Thing’s Joonas Makkonen, who clearly knows what he’s doing behind the camera, jumps into the genre, it’s just icing on the cake.
I’m not going to waste my time writing a long synopsis, it’s basically a group of people stuck in a cabin with a half human, half bunny (sporting a 12 inch cock) terrorizing them and repeating “Fresh Pussy”. I think this little synopsis sums up the film pretty well.
In a film like this that is both outrageous and over the top, you don’t think you’ll get much character development but that’s not the case. Surprisingly all the characters a fleshed out well. You have a lesbian rapist, a masturbating teen hung up on losing his virginity, three criminals that you’re not quite sure what they are up to, a flirty blonde trying to find love within the criminal trio, a gay black guy who befriends the least likely you think he’d fall for, and every other character has some back story that is unique and intriguing.
The creature itself is not something you’ll ooh and awe over as far as creature effects, it’s basically a guy in a bunny suit, which I assuming the filmmakers did on purpose, because all the other FX in the film look great and there is a lot of blood in the film and it starts within the first 5 minutes.
The film will offend the average movie watcher with a creature that slings it’s d*ck around, skull f*cks, rapes, and chews private parts off (that’s just a few), it’s not for everyone. But for those that have a morbid sense of humor, and can appreciate what the film is supposed to be… fun, you’ll love it. It’s something that I haven’t seen in years, and films I’d like to see more of. One thing about the film — Joonas kind of balanced on that line of being too gross, but never really crossed that line. Just as you think he is going to cross it, the camera cuts to another scene or sequence. I wish he would have pushed it just a tad further, but that’s just me.
If you are a hardcore horror fan that likes the dark, morbid, humor, you will love this one as I did. I highly recommend it.
The film is available from Artsploitation Films.
