The Bunnyman Massacre Review

Bunnyman Massacre starts off strong, there are no punches pulled. Beforewe even know what's going on with the Bunnyman in this sequel he'shacking up a school bus full of kids with a chainsaw. Granted, thisparticular scene fortunately doesn't have any actual on-screen kills,but even the insinuation is way beyond what you normally see in slashers.

The first half of the movie overall is full of epic kills. There's acrazy sleeping bag kill that shows Bunnyman literally swinging around achick in a sleeping bag and slamming her repeatedly against a rock untilblood splatters everywhere. There's a messy machete neck chop followedby a closeup nip shot. And then there's a creative barrel kill thatinvolves sharp screws, won't spoil this one for ya, the build up to whathappens with the screws is one of the highlights of this movie.

The second half of the movie really slows down, the Bunnyman and Joe arestill chasing people around, but there's a lot more downtime than Iexpected after the wild ride of the first half. A lot of it is just theusual cat and mouse game between killers and victims, and most of thatis the cat playing with its food.

One thing in particular I really liked about Bunnyman Massacre, aside from the barrel scene, was the cinematography and sound. Both were far higher quality than you normally see in indie horrors and made the movie an enjoyable watch. The visuals and sound, paired with the buckets of blood, did make up for the lulls in the story and overall made this sequel a solid followup to the original Bunnyman.

Worth Watching?

I think so. It's a solid indie slasher that gives you what you go in looking for, maniacs and creative kills . Bunnyman can't be beat.
