It Must Be Bunnies: 35 Horrible Hares to Haunt Your Easter

Monty Python and the Holy Grail Killer Rabbits

Kittens, for those of you that celebrate, this Sunday is Easter. While some of us do like to point out that it’s the most popularly celebrated zombie holiday in the world, here at The Year of Halloween, we know that when it comes to Easter, it must be bunnies.

These harmless fluffballs, long associated with spring festivals in general and Easter in particular as symbols of fecundity and innocence, take a sinister turn when they detour through the world of horror. From Frank in Donnie Darko to the dread Rabbit of Caerbannog, these 35 creepy critters are more likely to be hiding severed heads than painted eggs. Enjoy!
