Not everyone enjoys every Holiday throughout the year, and not everybody likes the movies that come with them. Despite there not really being a market for Easter films, there are some features, such as children’s ones with rabbits in them, that you may consider watching.

However, if you’re not into that, then why not check out the creepy side of Easter? Some films have freaky bunnies, and others are just plain scary.

Donnie Darko (2002)

Even if you haven’t seen Donnie Darko, we’re sure you can recall the menacing mammal as the face of the film.

We follow Donnie (Jake Gyllenhaal), a young man who doesn’t really get along with anybody. Not his family, classmates, or teachers; and the one friend he does have, seems to be the only thing looking out for him.

Donnie has a friend that no one else can see – a large and sinister Bunny called Frank – who appears to be the one friend Donnie has. While Donnie is out, a plane crashes into his family home; oddly enough, he isn’t there when the accident occurs…

This film is extremely ominous, and will definitely have you thinking about any decisions to purchase rabbits for pets.

Pet Sematary (2019)

The 2019 remake of the film based on Stephen King’s novel (with the same title) may not have been a huge hit with fans of the original, but we can’t deny that it is definitely a haunting tale.

Louis (Jason Clarke) and his wife Rachel (Amy Seimetz), along with their two kids, move to a countryside home, where the Pet Sematary, located near their house, enlightens them all.

The family’s beloved cat is sadly hit by a truck, and Rachel unwittingly buries the pour feline in the Pet Sematary – and horror follows.

When creepy cats come back from beyond the grave and haunt your family, it must be said that sometimes, the dead are better off staying that way.

Not only does the cat come back, the daughter got hit by the truck too…

This film is undeniably sinister and while it isn’t everyone’s favourite, it is definitely worth the watch just for the macabre overtone it has.

An American Werewolf in London (1981)

An old movie, sure, but also a stunning classic that is 40 years old and still absolutely amazing.

David (David Norton) and his friend Jack (Griffin Dunne) go on a trip to England, but quickly get into the worst kind of trouble.

After their not-so-warm-welcome in a pub within a small town, the boys take off walking in the middle of the night. The pair are attacked by a werewolf – David is mauled and Jack dies.

Throughout the movie, David sees his friend Jack in a worsening state of decomposition, telling David to end his own life or he will turn into a werewolf too, endangering everyone.

The film has charm due to its old age, and has fantastic CGI and one of the most gruesome and impressive transformation scenes in horror history; David’s teeth grow larger, his hands turn to paws, and his spine twists and shapes into something totally grotesque.

If a film with a terrifying wolf as opposed to a happy Easter Bunny if your thing, then this film is something that will definitely grab your attention.

The Thing (1982)

John Carpenter directs this masterpiece of horror, as a crew of scientists get more than they bargained for working in the ice.

A group of scientists lead by MacReady (Kurt Russell) are lead to a creature they believe to be an alien, after following a helicopter chasing a wild dog.

Once they retrieve the specimen and place it in their lab, all hell breaks loose. This thing can take over anyone and anything, from dogs to humans; and while this isn’t an animal, it is technically a creature, which is the same, right?

This creature stalks the team, and trust issues begin to arise. Who could be The Thing? This movie bares the iconic scene in which MacReady tests the crew’s blood samples, to see if they’re the alien.

The Thing is a terrifying being for sure, as it twists and moulds itself into a mass of flesh simply hellbent on killing everyone it sees – it’s a horrifying couple of hours, to say the least.

The Shallows (2016)

While it may not strictly be a horror film, The Shallows sets the bar a little higher for shark movies.

When Nancy (Blake Lively) heads to a secluded beach her mother spoke about before her passing, things don’t pan out the way she hoped.

As she surfs the waves of this isolated beauty and sits on the warm sands of its beach, Nancy becomes bait.

When a huge wave rocks up, Nancy takes the opportunity to ride it – until something knocks her off her board…

Nancy has now been bitten by a huge Great White Shark, and is stranded just a couple hundred metres form the shore. Being a trainee nurse, Nancy battles the heat during the day, the cold during the night, and the struggle to defeat the thing holding her hostage.

This movie is utterly fantastic; Lively does a great job at holding the audience’s attention throughout the film, as there are very little cast members. The shark’s presence is always lingering, and she is always thinking and calculating how to escape this battle-scarred monster.
