Peter's (Corin Nemec) is a somewhat nerdy scientist who has always had a soft spot for rabbits. And if he's ever had a traumatic experience in his whole life, it was when a bully snapped the neck of his favourite bunny rabbit, killing it in the process. And this bully has since grown up to be preacher Jake Mulligan (William McNamara). But Mulligan is really into preaching more for the tax-free money than anything else, and since he has learned the church of Easter Falls is built above a gold ore, he wants to usurp the building "in the name of god", to then turn it into a (literal) gold mine, the profit going into his own pockets of course. Now this alerts lovely Anna (Dominique Swain), daughter of the resident preacher who doesn't want her father's church go to a moneygrabber. Now she knows that Peter has a weak spot for her, and that he has a grudge against Mulligan, so she figures he might help her in her fight - which Peter is indeed willing to, but there's one problem: In an effort to save some rabbits from a lab neighbouring his, he has been bitten by some monster or other, and now gradually turns into a rabbit-man. But while he more and more resembles a rabbit on the outside, he also turns from a nerd who couldn't hurt a fly into a ruthless killing machine, Rottentail, and now he dishes out revenge to all who've ever wronged him, and that includes Mulligan rather by mistake than by design, even though Peter still shows feelings for Anna. This soon puts the army on the map, and army general Phelps (Tank Jones), who has been physically enhanced by Dr Stanley (Gianni Capaldi), the very man from the lab next door to Peter's ...

 

Rottentail is loud, it's gross, it's gory, at times it's silly and also crude - and it's a hoot to all fans of horror comedy. Now in its anything-goes approach it does of course betray its comicbook roots - which is of course not at all a bad thing, especially since the movie's really uncompromising in this attitude. Now story- and stylewise, Rottentail is most reminiscent of horror a monster b-movies of the late 1980s and early 1990s, but with its very own humouristic spin attached to them, which is rather certain to bode well with fans, with some wonderfully grotesque  gore effects and some suitably over-the-top performances - with special praise going to Corin Nemec and William McNamara here - really hitting this one home.
