It’s about a group of guys from Bunnyman’s past who take him in, and later regret it.

Bunnyman Vengeance was directed by Carl Lindbergh (who also directed Bunnyman  and  Shadows of the Dead) and David Scott (from And They Watched), Marshal Hilton (from Primal Rage: The Legend Of Oh-Mah) and Jake Ryan Scott Bryant (from Children Of The Corn: Runaway).

Nothing will stop him


Bunnyman 3 is the last part of the Bunnyman franchise and features a reunion with the guy who saved his life as a kid. This guy, Jacob, is similar to Bunnyman in that he’s bullied by his caretakers. This pattern of abusive caretakers has been a running theme throughout all the Bunnyman films and one I found particularly interesting because it effectively creates a sense of sympathy around an otherwise vile villain. Bunnyman was not only burned alive by bullies when he was a kid, but he went on to be bullied by a maternal caretaker, followed by a paternal caretaker and finally by caretakers who filled the sibling role. They all pushed him around until he finally cracked, was forced to slash them and then he just wanders off into the desert alone at sunset. I really love when movies can make you feel sorry for a psycho. It adds real depth to an otherwise routine slasher flick.

Bunnyman 3 is like many horror sequels, made to just give you more of what you like. The story was the same, just more of the Bunnyman killing campers while in-fighting with his careless caretakers. The creative cinematography was still there, but the gore we’ve come to love from Bunnyman wasn’t. There were messy kills of course, but they didn’t seem to pack the same punch. And a lot of CGI was introduced which was hard to ignore.

This last part of the franchise did wrap up Bunnyman’s story. We saw more of his origins and saw a nice conclusion to his plight, but ultimately this one wasn’t my favorite. That title would have to go to Bunnyman: Grindhouse Edition. But overall, this series was a blast to watch and I’d recommend it to anyone in the mood for some creative low budget high intensity indie horror.

Worth Watching?

If you're watching the entire trilogy than definitely, it goes deeper into the life of Bunnyman which makes for a satisfying conclusion. If you're only looking to watch one of the Bunnyman films, I'd go for either Grindhouse Edition or Bunnyman Massacre.
