Our review:
A generic, unoriginal slasher mystery (it rehashes the plot from I Know What You Did Last Summer), Easter Killing nonetheless provides some mildly entertaining moments of mayhem, even it takes 47 minutes before we get the first revenge kill.

The tatty, bedraggled bunny costume the killer uses is effectively creepy, there’s no shortage of fake blood and one genuinely surprising sudden death. This is certainly Jack Peter Mundy‘s best directing assignment so far, with some well-staged stalking in a couple of scenes, although improving on the likes of Monsters of War, Amityville Scarecrow and Dinosaur Hotel isn’t much of an achievement.

On the downside, the staging is clunky, there are too many filler flashbacks that repeat the same drunken ‘n’ drugged-up dancey scenes and some of the actor’s performances are atrocious, particularly by a couple of individuals who shall remain nameless here but anyone watching will surely wince when they are onscreen. Stand-out thesps are Lee Hancock and always reliable Sarah T. Cohen.

Amidst the continual recriminations about the opening campsite killing and subsequent suicide, the killer’s identity is startlingly obvious. The plot attempts a twist that comes across as fairly ridiculous and equally laughable but at least scripter Sophie Storm K. (sic) has the audacity to try and pull it off.

Meanwhile, Andy Fosberry’s synth score is perhaps overused – some of its swirling new-age elements are used loudly and unnecessarily during dialogue scenes – yet effective during the murder scenes.

Although it’s being promoted as Easter Bunny Massacre, the title on the version that was briefly posted free to watch on YouTube is Easter Killing.

Other reviews:
“Yes, we’re in classic slasher movie territory with Easter Bunny Massacre – with a little mystery thrown in a la Agatha Christie’s Ten Little Indians […] The reveal however is less satisfactory […] Whilst it doesn’t have the emotional resonance of some other Scott Jeffrey’s productions (and yes, some of them are much more than just horror films – look at The Curse of Humpty Dumpty for example) Easter Bunny Massacre does exactly what I’m sure the filmmakers set out to do.” Nerdly
