"This year, there will be no resurrection."

Easter Bunny, Kill! Kill! (yes, that is the title) is a 2006 Slasher Movie.

Lowlife thug Remington Rashkor has managed to charm his way into the life of Mindy Peters, a single mother (her husband Donald died years earlier) whose son Nicholas is severely intellectually handicapped. While he loves Mindy, Remington hates Nicholas (feelings which are reciprocated) and abuses him in secret; since she is head over heels for him, Mindy fails to notice anything negative about Remington, who she leaves in charge of Nicholas (who had recently gotten a pet rabbit, which Remington enjoys threatening, from a wandering bum) on Easter, due to being called in to do a double shift at work. No longer needing to behave with Mindy gone, Remington orders Nicholas to his room, and decides to throw an "Easter party" with guests that include drug dealing pedophile Ray Mann, and a pair of prostitutes named Brooke and Candy. As this is going on, disgruntled laborer Jorge (who was doing construction work on the Peters house) decides to break in and rob the place with help from his wife Lupe, and an acquaintance named B.F.

With all these assholes gathering in one place, is it any wonder the attention of an Easter Bunny mask wearing, power tool wielding psycho is drawn? This mysterious killer evidently does not like how Nicholas has been mistreated, does not like it at all, and so they decide to clean house...

A throwback to exploitative cinema (look at that artwork over there on the right) the film was, upon being released a few years after completion, met with surprisingly decent reviews, despite its sleazy nature and obvious low-budget (plastic sheets are everywhere, due to the house it is set in being "under construction").

This film provides examples of the following tropes:

  • Adults Are Useless: Seems to be the case with Mindy, until it's revealed she's the killer.
  • Alliterative Name: Remington Rashkor.
  • Anachronism Stew: The house has a record player, a rotary telephone and... an Ipod.
  • Animal-Eared Headband: Nicholas's rabbit ears.
  • Asshole Victims: The only non-asshole victims are the liquor store clerk Remington robs, (debatably) Brooke and Candy, and Jorge, Lupe, and B.F. who are only breaking into the house to get back their tools.
    • Though it's pretty heavily implied they intend on ransacking the place.
  • Auto Erotica: During the drive back to the house, Remington, Brooke and Candy screw around a little in the car.
  • Berserk Button: Mindy's is Nicholas being called retarded.
  • Blood-Splattered Innocents: Nicholas's rabbit gets covered in blood.
  • Broomstick Quarterstaff: Candy gets a broomstick handle shoved down her throat.
  • Cast as a Mask: A guy named Wolf Dangler actually played the killer.
  • Cat Scare: Candy dropping a glass while in the kitchen.
  • Chekhov's Gun: The power tools lying around the Peters house.
  • Eye Scream: Ray gets knifed in the eye.
  • Fan Disservice: Remington's ass shot.
  • Fanservice: The entire purpose of Brooke and Candy. Well, that and fodder.
  • Fat Bastard: Along with needing crutches, Ray is quite obese.
  • Femme Fatalons: While he never uses them in a fight, Ray has some unusually sharp, nasty looking fingernails.
  • Fingore: While Ray is writhing around as the killer attacks him, some of his aforementioned fingernails break off. Jorge also loses some fingers while being slashed with a buzz saw.
  • For the Evulz: Presumably Remington's reason for shooting the completely cooperative liquor store clerk in the opening.
  • Improvised Weapon: Remington beats the wounded and erratic B.F. to death with a flashlight. The killer later impales Candy through the mouth with a broomstick handle.
  • In the Hood: Part of the killer's outfit. The wandering vagrant also has one.
  • Kick the Dog: If puppy soccer was a sport, Remington would be one of the greats.
  • Neck Snap: Remington continually threatens to break Nicholas's pet rabbit's neck.
  • Nice Hat: Yeah, he's a creepy pedophile, but Ray's hat is admittedly a nice one.
  • Not Quite Dead: Turns out the killer failed to completely hammer the life out of B.F. Remington ends up finishing the job with a flashlight.
  • Not What It Looks Like: When Remington walks in on Nicholas playing with his rabbit under a blanket, he at first assumes he's having A Date with Rosie Palms.
  • The Reveal: The killer is Mindy. Also, the vagrant who gave Nicholas the rabbit was his believed dead father.
  • Too Much Information:
    Ray: "I can photograph him, right?"
    Remington: "Sure, what the fuck do I care."
    Ray: "I can let him piss on my face just to see where it comes from."
    Remington: "... Don't... don't sicken me."
    Ray: "Sorry, excited. I forget my manners from time to time."
  • Turn of the Millennium: It doesn't feel like it though.
  • Unusual Dysphemism: Ray can't wait to get some "boy pussy".
  • What Would X Do??: Mindy tells Nicholas that whenever he gets angry, he should stop and think "What would Jesus do?"
  • Your Cheating Heart: Remington cheating on Mindy with a pair of prostitutes does not win him any karma points.
