Go To

Evil Easter 3: The Final Easter is the final installment in a series of weird slasher-spoofs. Unlike the first part, this segment is neither a fake-trailer or about a killer rabbit but about pagan Nazis that are vampires and werewolves trying to summon a goddess. A catholic priest and a trio that hunts nazis for fun tries to stop them. Somehow Charles Manson is involved.

Started as a fake trailer but mutated into a an entire film.


Evil Easter 3 contains examples of the following tropes:

  • Ascended Extra: The Nazis, compared to the second segment when they appeared.
  • Affectionate Parody: Of the more "conventional" slasher films and their often similarly out-there plots.
  • Argentina Is Nazi-Land: The Nazis claim they come from South America and that everybody talks like them where they come from.
  • Blasphemous Boast: The opening credits roll over a shot of a cross burned by the Nazis, during the climax a sculpture of Christ burns.
  • Bloodier and Gorier: Than the previous entries that were gore free, this one has some rather disgusting gore.
  • Brief Accent Imitation: Conrad speaks American for no apparent reason when he briefs Heinrich about his opinion on Manson.
  • Conflict Killer: The Nazis, it seems. It turns out they were the ones who created the killer Easter bunny.

  • Creator Cameo: The filmmakers play the lead villains.
  • Demoted to Extra: The Easter bunny is hardly in the movie, but when it does show up...
  • The Climax: The Nazis start their ritual, as the Nazi hunters run in and shoot up the place.
  • Those Wacky Nazis: And how! Heinrich von Teufelkraft is a tall, blonde man with round, black glasses who embodies "Smooth Nazis" like Hans Landa and The Major. His righthand man Conrad von Starker is a sadistic Sociopathic Soldier how speaks with a high pitched voice when excited.
  • Truth in Television: Jacob Grimm's theory about the legend of the Easter bunny being connected to the goddess Eostre is not made up, but an actual theory. Though there is not much evidence that such a goddess was worshipped by the ancient Germans, except for a Roman centurion's notes. The Nazis seeing Christianity as a Jewish invention that need to be destroyed was a real opinion of occult Nazis like Alfred Rosenberg. Also the information about the Thule Society is also close to real life.
  • World Gone Mad: What did you expect in a horror film set on Easter with pagan Nazis playing a major role?
