“The adventures of Joe and Bunnyman know no limit of bloodlust and carnage. Bodies pile up as Bunnyman indiscriminately slaughters anything that crosses his path in a mutually beneficial relationship that gives Joe plenty of beef jerky to sell in his local store.“

Again, here is a movie that is getting by on how it's "inspired by true events". In other words, they magnified something small and made it an over exaggerated story in an attempt to strike fear in the viewers hearts by making them think it's a real story. They do this because there's nothing else actually scary about the movie.

Truth of it all is, the Bunny Man is actually an Urban Legend and nothing more. There's no set story of him. There were calls made to police back in 1970 by people who claimed they were threatened by a man wearing a ridiculous bunny costume. Since then, stories of his motive, weapon of choice, origins, etc have all varied, proving this movie Bunnyman Massacre is based off of nothing more than rumors and old stories. There's no "true events" part to it.

The actual film itself is awful. I viewed a screener of it a good month ago, and I wasn't impressed at all. It's one of those flicks that tries to back out of going the full mile and being a committed horror film. Every time something serious happens, something silly and off-the-wall happens and off centers it. It's a goofy concept, and while the filmmakers tried to have fun with it, it doesn't go over well. I didn't laugh at the attempted humor, I laughed at how poorly acted it is.

The clip below is titled "Front Row Seat", and as you can see, it's a common redneck flick about degrading and victimizing women (yawn). For the life of me, I can't understand how the Bunnyman actually walks around the whole film in that costume. The guy must have the best cardio in the world!

Bunnyman Massacre is heading to home video August 12th. Try it out for yourself if you'd like. But, I recommend you try something else and save yourself the cash.
