I had noticed that a film titled BUNNYMAN was in rotation on the Chiller network but never took the time to give it a watch. I may have to rectify that soon because there's a sequel hopping its way towards us this August under the title THE BUNNYMAN MASSACRE, and today we've got the release details and a weird trailer for it to share with ya.
Midnight Releasing is set to unleash the demented BUNNYMAN MASSACRE on August 12 on DVD and VOD across North America. Also known as BUNNYMAN 2, the film is a drastically improved sequel to the 2011 cult hit BUNNYMAN which gained notoriety from a huge amount of press, as well as being in heavy rotation on the cable TV channel Chiller.
The Bunny Man character was inspired by the true story of an axe-wielding man in a bunny suit who terrorized residents of Fairfax County, Virginia in 1970. Going wild with that inspiration, writer/director Carl Lindbergh and his company ANOC Productions created and released BUNNYMAN in 2011. Now the sequel, BUNNYMAN MASSACRE, is set to hit VOD and DVD on August 12, and you can check out the DVD artwork and trailer below.
Joe and Bunnyman's adventure continue in a rural ghost town. Bunnyman's blood lust knows no bounds, as he slaughters indiscriminately anything that crosses his path. Joe is all too happy to encourage his behavior, selling the dead victims as beef jerky in his local store.
A mutually beneficial relationship with cracks that start to emerge. As the bodies pile up, including a couple dozen kids in a school bus, Bunnyman's body count is becoming more problematic. Joe is forced with disposing of the bodies, by any means necessary. A problem he exasperates by occasionally joining in on the rampage.
In addition to Joe's body disposal problem, the local sheriff becomes suspicious with the disappearance of a few of his deputies. His investigation crosses paths with two persistent sisters, that refuse to die at the hands of Joe and Bunnyman. Some will live, and some will die, but all will be damaged.
