Reviews:

“A raunchy Finnish horror/comedy (with English and Finnish breezily interspersed), Bunny the Killer Thing brings the fun + gore, while suffering from laughs lost in translation. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t an interesting viewing exercise, if only to get a better understanding of Finnish culture…” Really Awful Movies

“Makkonen’s dialogue is terrific and although he operates on safe territory presented by the foundation of the aforementioned slasher film, he’s not too concerned with paying homage, honoring past filmmakers or overthinking anything. That could’ve been disastrous, resulting in a bland script and forcing every other aspect of the picture to be flawless in the hopes of being impressive, but somehow, it’s not.” Horrorfreak News

“It makes good use of the impressive Finnish landscapes, and visually, it looks quite impressive – far better than I expected it for such a moderately budgeted affair. I liked some of the characters and their dynamics. Despite the fact that the humor mostly didn’t work for me, there actually were a handful of gags that at least mildly amused me.” A life in 24 fps

Bunny the Killer Thing isn’t for everyone. It’s raunchy, dark, and sexual, and is sure to set off trigger warnings for basically everything, but it’s admirably unapologetic about everything. In a time where filmmakers seem to walk on eggshells, afraid of upsetting anyone, it’s refreshing to see a film that goes all-out in its political incorrectness.” Cinema Slasher
