Howdy there, Scream Freaks! It ain’t quite here yet, but Easter’s hoppin’ up on us, and our favorite ghostly girlfriend Mandy’s got some prizes to give away. We’re askin’ all you Scream Freaks out there to dig into that humorously dark part of your brain and tweet us the scariest thing about the Easter Bunny with the hashtag #BillyBunny. The tweets will be reviewed by your favorite animated horror hosts here at Screaming Soup!, and our favorite tweet will win a copy of Easter Sunday starrin’ Robert “Maniac Cop” Z’Dar along with other random Easter swag.
What is it with holiday characters anyway? Why is part of their celebrated charm breakin’ into your home and doin’ stuff when you’re sleepin’? Santa expects milk and cookies, Tooth Fairy steals your teeth, leprechauns wreck your shit, ghosts and goblins want candy, and the Easter Bunny either leaves you a basket of chocolate or 2nd Christmas goodies dependin’ on how rich your parents are. It’s no wonder these fantasy creatures are so easily imagined as horror villains, ’cause it ain’t that big a stretch for the imagination to think of these invasive boogey men as Medusa monsters you’re not suppose to see creepin’ around you.
Anyway, if you haven’t seen Easter Sunday yet, it’s a cheap holiday horror that definitely belongs with other like-minded classics like Thankskilling. A bunny mask wearin’ psycho’s Easter massacre is stopped by Sheriff Z’Dar, but it’s rabbit season all over again when some yahoos accidentally resurrect the slasher’s soul years later for some Easter fun. Mandy’s plannin’ a full review for this one later on, so all we’ll say for now is if you like grindhouse inspired flicks, chatty slashers, and gory eye gags, then this is right up your alley!
Contest ends Saturday 4/8/17 and the winner will be announced 4/10/17! Be dark, be funny, be creative, and don’t forget to add #BillyBunny so we can find it!
