The Bunny Man, rumored to be the Easter Bunny, is an urban legend originating from two incidents in Fairfax County Virginia in 1970, but has been spread throughout the Washington D.C. area. There are many variations to the legend, but most involve a man wearing a rabbit costume who attacks people with an axe on Easter Sunday! Horror icon Robert Z'Dar (Maniac Cop, Tango & Cash) returns to the big screen alongside Edward X. Young in the first trailer for this blood-soaked slasher flick, which finds Douglas Fisher returning in 2013 to finish the terror he began 24 years ago.

Production on Easter Sunday is currently under way in Virginia, and director Jeremy Moorehead is seeking additional funding through the Kickstarter crowd-funding platform. He explains why you should help.
"That is an excellent question - in fact, the best question. Why should you help us with our movie? Perhaps you're a horror fan who wants to see horror movies made by independent film makers. Maybe your passion is for the arts and you want to see creation wherever you can. Maybe you just love helping regular people live their dreams and making it a reality. We need your help with this project! I would love to share this experience with someone and let them reap the rewards of patronage."

Easter Sunday has already reached its pledge goal, so no need to sweat the man with no legs sitting on the overpass. Easter Sunday is coming, and the rest is just sweet cream on top of this horror sundae.
Here's the official synopsis:
It's been 24 years since the deranged serial killer Douglas Fisher was executed by police on Easter night. This year, a group of hard partying teenagers not only raise some hell, but literally raise the dead! The teens accidentally conjure the spirit of Douglas Fisher... aka the bunny masked killer. These teens have until midnight on Easter to stop the evil bunny slasher, or he will tear their town and everyone in it into pieces. There will be no candy in your Easter basket, just the limbs and body parts of your family and friends.
