Last time on Weird Movie of the Week, we looked at a Hitchcockian tale of mustache disappearance. This time, we’ve got a bloody, gory and supremely weird movie trailer:
Wow, I’m not quite sure what to make of that. Of course, creepy bunny suits have a surprisingly deep cinematic history, but this one goes a few steps further than normal. Devin Faraci has the lowdown on the film:
It looks kind of hackneyed and silly but also nicely shot – at least much more nicely shot than a movie featuring a bunny suit wearing chainsaw murderer should be. I did some research and at first got excited that this film was about a truly bizarre urban legend from Fairfax County, Virginia that has also spread to Washington, DC. The legend is about a maniac in a bunny suit who attacks people with an axe at a railway overpass. Supposedly it’s based on fact.
Wow. Considering that the film was made in 2009 and was apparently never released, I’m betting we won’t even be able to watch this if we wanted. But according to the film’s offical Myspace page (Myspace? Yikes.) there’s a sequel in the works:
The little germ of a idea has sprouted into a full on 20 page treatment…. a full script is not that far behind. There seems to be a wealth of ideas as to how to continue the story with the characters of Bunnyman. What’s really positive about this, is after watching the film, everyone wants to see more. The character has sparked interest, and people want to know what happens next.
