Easter isn’t exactly a holiday that gets associated with the horror genre very often. With the exception of last year’s Holidays, in which Nicholas McCarthy gave us one of the most horrifying Easter bunnies ever created, there aren’t a lot of Easter-themed horror movies out there (though Critters 2 just barely makes the cut). Austin-based artist Marcela Piñeda, who goes under the pseudonym “The Exorstitch” aims to fix that injustice by giving some of your favorite horror (and one non-horror) film an Easter-y twist in a gallery she calls “A Very Scary Easter“!
What would be more terrifying than waking up on Easter morning to see Frank the Bunny putting eggs in your Easter basket? Nothing. The answer is nothing.
Imagine participating in this Easter egg hunt (which Piñeda has renamed “Ovomorph Hunt”). You might get a nasty facehugger surprise!
At least Piñeda’s version of Buffalo Bill has the courtesy to send a nice basket of colored eggs with his daily serving of moisturizer. Catherine Martin probably would have been a little bit happier in her pit if Jonathan Demme’s (or Thomas Harris’s) version of Bill did this.
Admittedly, the head-exploding set piece in David Cronenberg’s Scanners would have lost some of its impact if confetti exploded out of the ConSec scanner’s head instead of brains and blood, but it would have made the film a bit more kid-friendly. And who doesn’t want a kid-friendly Cronenberg film? Fun fact: cascarón is Spanish for a hollowed out chicken egg filled with confetti or small toys.
How do you make George A. Romero’s Creepshow even more terrifying? Put a Peep, arguably the nastiest candy ever created, front and center on its poster.
