Peter Cottontail is pissed that the Catholic Church wants to ban
rabbits and eggs from the Easter holidays - and he has every right to be
pissed, because he's the Easter Rabbit. So to prevent being abolished from
his own holiday, Peter Cottontail starts killing priests and nuns who are
working against him. However, his intentions are ulterior, you see, he
actually wants to kill the Christian God to become the one and only god.
Oh yeah, and since Easter was originally a celebration of fertility, he's
especially drawn to nuns and priests who have sex - which isn't all that
much of a problem because they all seem to be horny devils.
the Catholic Church, led by an almost supervillain-like Mega Pope (Steve
Rimpici), has a superhero of its own, Asher (Josh Eal), a priest and
exorcist, who knows every trick in the book when it comes to hunting
demons. He has soon picked up the trail of Peter Cottontail, and manages
to avoid his many death traps - but then he finds Aubrie (Erin R. Ryan), a
girl from a Catholic school, who Peter Cottontail seems to especially keen
on getting his hands on. She needs special protection of course, and by
Asher himself ... but hey, Aubrie is just a naive schoolgirl, sexy too,
and more than a bit horny, and Asher - well, he's a man and he has needs
The next day, Aubrie is gone and all hell breaks loose ... and
without giving away too much, the finale also involves a giant rabbit
laying waste to a city ...
Ok, it's about a killer Easter Bunny
which is represented by a very obvious handpuppet. The whole thing demands
tons of special effects but was made for $ 3,000, approximately (according
to the director), it features a very crude depiction of the Catholic
Church that was very obviously not based on too much research, and it
features plenty of gratuitous nudity - this simply cannot be a good movie,
Wrong, Easter Casket is about a ton and a half of fun, and
for all the above reasons, too. Basically, Easter Casket doesn't
take itself seriously for one single minute but still manages to drive its
story forwards rather beautifully and with expert pacing. And it creates
an absurd universe where it doesn't matter that the special effects (a mix
of practical and digital FX) look corny and unrealistic as can be. The
depiction of the Catholic Church - including its superhero and the Mega
Pope - is so ridiculous and over-the-top it might even make the pope
laugh, and as for the nudity ... heck, I can't even remember why I
complained about it in the first place, some very cute girls in this one.
yeah, if you're at all up for a bit of genre absurdity, this one's pretty
much a must-see!!!
