So I’m all about horror and making things fun and scary, but I’m really struggling with a creepy way to celebrate Easter, the most pastel of all holidays. There just aren’t a lot of options here. I mean, the holiday mascot is a fluffy bunny.
But I’m going to try my hardest.
First of all, the Easter horror movie selection is (not surprisingly) lacking. There are only a handful, so I would recommend watching Easter Sunday (2014) and Peter Rottentail (2004). I haven’t seen either, but Easter Sunday has some pretty good reviews, and Peter Rottentail just looks weird and funny in a very B-movie way. Just Google it to look at the villain. Michael Myers he (she?) is not, but it’s still promising.
Also a good idea would be to check out Critters 2. It takes place near/on Easter, and there’s an excellent scene of the Easter Bunny getting attacked and killed. Not the real one, just a guy in a suit. Check it out:
Pretty cool, right?
Second, maybe find a way to maximize the creep factor of the day by being creative. Start by making some spiderweb dyed eggs. Just check out the many tutorials online. You could even draw some skulls on non-dyed eggs with a sharpie. That’s pretty simple. And if you have kids that are on board the horror train (Side note: I feel like if that’s not a thing, it should totally be), give them some scary movies and gross toys in their Easter basket, which could totally be jet black, by the way.
Pastel is not a requirement.
So there you have it. I tried and – just maybe? – succeeded. I hope you all have a very creepy Easter. Let me know if you have any other scary ways to celebrate.
