Chick Flicks - Alternative Horror Movies With An Easter Theme

I love Easter. Any holiday which offers up a four day weekend and an excuse to exist on chocolate and hot cross buns is pretty flippin' amazing. It's also a wonderful time to get together with family for food, fun and frivolity - or in our case, lots of boardgames, country walks and tea drinking! Marathon movie watching is something else all too easy to do with several days stretched out for relaxing, but sometimes you want to step away from the saccharine, and find something a little less sweet. With that in mind, I've got some Easter movie suggestions which are more frightful than fluffy, so pull your pillows close, and your chocolate stash closer!

Whether watching on a laptop or a Viera 4K TV, the enjoyment brought on by a day of cinematic fun knows no bounds. First up on the list is something which is child friendly - an 80s offering called Bunnicula The Vampire Rabbit. Whilst technically a show rather than a movie, I thought it worth mentioning in case you wanted younger eyes to get in on the spooky fun.


If you're looking for something which has a more horror or B-movie tone, then you're in luck as the Easter Bunny has been immortalised as a hare-raising killer time and time again. The Night Before Easter (2014) is one example, telling the tale of an axe-wielding killer chasing a group of friends around a storage facility. Made on a shoe-string budget, it's a typical slasher which somehow commands a menacing performance from a dude in a rabbit costume. Equal parts silly and scary, think Scream with bunny ears and you're part wear there.

If you're looking for something which has more gravitas to it, Donnie Darko (2001) with the pivotal character of Frank The Rabbit might be more your speed. Presented as a villain in his terrifying mask, the dark and complex story of time travel revolves around the long eared anti-hero.

Kottentail (2007) and Easter Sunday (2014) are also getting honorary mentions for anyone who's looking to put together a full day of bunny based horror. All you really need to know is that their respective tag lines are "He's hopping mad" and "The hunt is on!"

If you do decide to watch any of them over the bank holiday weekend, please let me know what you think in the comments! And whatever your plans, I do hope they involve lots of fun, and lots of chocolate.

Until next time,
