Somewhere in a ghost town the middle of backwoods, USA, hick Joe (David
Scott) lives with his friend Bunnyman (Joshua Lang), a mute who's so
horribly disfigured that he wears a cute (if blood drenched) bunny costume
all the time. Mainly they spend their days by torturing and killing people
- all kinds of folks, school kids, hikers, families passing through and
even deputies - if they get a clear enough shot.
Dowler), her sister Lauren (Jennifer June Ross), and their friends Kelly
(Jamie Bernadette) and Rachel (Kate Bowen) pass through this ghost town in
backwoods, USA, while on a hiking trip - but the group gets separated
after Sarah proves to be a total bitch, as she only seems to care about
Lauren and noone else - no big surprise there, Sarah and Lauren have only
just lost their parents, and now Sarah's just over-protective. But her
attitude makes them totally miss that Kelly and Rachel are slaughtered by
the Bunnyman while taking a break while she and Lauren hike on ... only to
walk right into Joe's trap.
As the girls find themselves tied up in
Joe's shed and he prepares to rape Lauren, Sarah makes a deal with the
devil: She will lure three more campers into Joe and the Bunnyman's lair
if he lets her and Lauren go. Joe agrees, and Sarah keeps her part of the
bargain ... only to soon find out it's never a good idea to trust a maniac
and his bunny-costumed executioner ...
While the first Bunnyman
was more of a typcial but fun slasher movie, this one has more of a
survival horror vibe to it - and despite the fact that the film's main
villain is something as absurd as a guy in a bunny costume wielding a
chainsaw, the film works surprisingly well in the tension and suspense
section, the bunny-costume actually being another disturbing element in
the context rather than a tongue-in-cheek element. Plus, the film is (as
was the first one) carried by strong characters who are allowed to make
wrong or at least questionable decisions, inventive killings that are
always something more than just being gratuitous, and a well-paced
approach to the story at hand that never leaves much of a breather but
doesn't just overwhelm its audience with spectacle at the same time.
nice genre entertainment!
