The deadly adventures of Bunnyman continue in the third and final film in the Bunnyman franchise. Bunnyman returns home to find his family running a haunted house attraction. They welcome him home, but soon realize you can not domesticate a wild animal. Death and mayhem ensue as they turn on one another to fulfill their blood lust.
Well, it looks like we’re once again joining our friends The Bunnyman for another CGI gore-filled adventure. This time open things up a bit by seeing why he’s always wearing a suit to cover up. Then we join him along with three brothers that he apparently grew up with. You’ll have to pardon me on my details regarding that, it has been a long time since I saw the first two films and can’t recall if this was covered in any of them before. None the less, our Bunny and his three friends are the story here. That means we have no “final girl” or anything close to a protagonist, as people come into the film only to be killed by everyone and to have just enough happened to put Bunnyman at odds with at least two of the three brothers. That’s basically our plot. It isn’t much but if you’ve seen the first two films you probably aren’t really here for a good plot anyway.
You do get a big body count and lots of weird CGI gore. It’s the type where they seem to have mixed stuff with it, so it looks like you’ve cropped a real gore pic on top of someone’s face for the effect. I’m thrilled on principal alone to have seen an indie horror film like Bunnyman go three deep into a franchise. I just wish we had a little more substance to go along with it. This time around, which is supposed to be the “final” film, we take a bit of an artsy look at things from time to time. It also turns into one of those horror films that wants you to feel bad for the killer. It becomes hard to feel sorry for someone when they are killing innocent hot women all the time. The only sympathetic character here is the one of Jacob played by Pucci Tres. He’s “special” and Pucci does a great job making you feel bad for him. Other than that, it is about what you’d expect.
