The BUNNYMAN MASSACRE is one of my personal favorite indie-horror films of this year. I was excited to drop some questions in on the BUNNYMAN himself, Joshua Lang
LEGLESS CORPSE: You have worn many hats in film making over the years but only acted in the Bunnyman movies. How did you land the fantastic acting job of playing the Bunnyman?
JOSHUA LANG: I met at Carl (Lindbergh, Director) through a craigslist posting looking for a set photographer for a day and upon talking to him I convinced him to bring me on as a PA position. Being a gentleman of good size and stature, when other actors were unavailable to play the character, he asked me if I would like to play Bunnyman. Naturally, I jumped into it.
LC: In The Bunnyman Massacre, the character has no dialogue, but characterization certainly comes through in your performance. Did you spend a lot of time in the suit off camera practicing his physical attributes?
JL: Actually, for me it was quite easy to get into character. As soon as you step in that dirty stinky nasty suit, put on those big heavy boots and the ackward dome helmet, that tries to suffocate you, restricts your sight and movement, you can’t help but be pissed off and angry at the world.
LC: What is the hardest part in putting on the suit and becoming the character?
JL: The hardest part is not being able to see very well. So my simple movements can become difficult especially when doing any type of stunt/kill scenes were precision and accuracy with your movements are very key to not hurting anyone.
LC: The Bunnyman Massacre is a pretty crazy film, with a lot of cool scenes. Which scene, for you as the Bunnyman, was the funnest to shoot?
JL: Kill scenes are the best. I really like working with the actresses in figuring out the way we are working the kill scenes. I try hard to ensure that the people I work with are comfortable with what we’re doing. I don’t want anybody to get hurt, there’s always a safe way to do things.
LC: You’re reprising your role in Bunnyman 3 as well as producing, what is it about the series that keeps you coming back?
JL: The fact that Carl keeps running into problems he can’t fix gives me an opportunity to show off my problem solving skills. It is nice to be involved with somebody who takes suggestions and incorporates them into the film. It really gives me the feeling that I’m participating in the filmmaking process and it actually shows that we’re growing together as filmmakers.
LC: What bloody adventures will we see the Bunnyman exploring in the new installment?
JL: I can’t say very much now about the future of Bunnyman, but letting you know the next one will be bigger, it will be better, it will be bloodier. We are throwing everything at the next installment including the kitchen sink and you should expect to see a little bit more information filled in about Bunnyman’s past.
THE BUNNYMAN MASSACRE WILL BE AVAILABLE AUGUST 12TH FROM MIDNIGHT RELEASING.
