The tag line for Peter Rottentail is "You'll Be Having A Bad Hare Day!" In reality you'll be want to have another drink.

While there really aren't many movies that have an Easter theme, I thought I'd bring you 2004's "Peter Rottentail" which has no connection with Easter at all.

For purveyors of bad movies you'll have to add this to your collection of not B but D list movies.

This is so bad (and a comedy to boot) that even if it weren't a comedy you'd be laughing uncontrollably.

It's the story of Peter Krigstein (Brian Berry) a joke of a magician. He can't make a trick work so one day after another failed birthday party performance he meets up with a strange man who gives him a magic potion.

While working another failed party he drinks the potion and thinks he'll turn into Peter Rottentail but it doesn't work immediately. After he's thrown out of the party the potion begins to work and he goes on a rampage (which we don't see).

Fast forward 13 years later and James Neely (Dave Fife) is having nightmares about being chased by Krigstein. He gets a call from his cousin Lenny (Brice Kennedy) to help him clean out their dead grandmother's house and James is still haunted by the memories.

What they don't know is two guys have brought Krigstein back to life by reading an incantation and the two are murdered by carrots.

Now as Peter Rottentail, Krigstein goes on a killing spree going after those who were at the last party. (The only ones at the party were young James and Lenny).

Finally, James and Rottentail come to blows literally and who's going to win?

While the movie is mindless the best performance comes from Berry. You really do feel sorry for the loser magician and he's not a bad actor. Another cool thing is the lighting. Instead of plain white light on the actors there's a pinwheel of color either on them or illuminating the background.

With the latter being the best parts of the movie you may want to check it out.
