As a special Easter treat we’re happy to present to you, our fellow loonies, the opening six minutes of the new slasher flick Easter Sunday! So get ready to color your eggs blood red (which incidentally is the title of our favorite rejected Herschell Gordon Lewis script).
A gory love letter to the golden era of slasher movies, the indie film Easter Sunday is written and directed by Jeremy Todd Morehead and stars horror legends Robert Z’Dar and Ari Lehman.
Easter Sunday‘s dynamic cast boasts Robert Z’Dar, the iconic actor best known as Maniac Cop; Ari Lehman; the first actor to portray Jason Voorhees in the original Friday the 13th; and indie veterans Edward X. Young (Mr. Hush) and Shawn C. Phillips (Ghost Shark). They join a number of promising up-and-comers including Paige Taylor, Christine Galbraith, William Bozarth, Jon McKoy, and Travis Marion.
Northgate Pictures has released N4red The Boogeyman’s music video for Easter Sunday‘s theme song, “Eggsecuted.” Done in the spirit of such classic film theme songs as “Are You Ready for Freddy?,” “Maniac Cop Rap,” and “The Monster Squad,” N4red’s hip-hop track captures the film’s tongue-in-cheek tone. The “Eggsecuted” video also features exclusive footage from the movie.
Easter Sunday follows a group of teens who accidentally conjure the spirit of Douglas Fisher, a deranged, bunny mask-clad serial killer. Fisher is portrayed by Jason Delgado, who also serves as the film’s producer.
Delgado explains the film as follow: “We are trying to bring forth a vision of ’80s gore and real brutality on our limited budget. We want to bring people a film that will be fun, fast-paced, and filled with edge-of-your-seat tension. I’m humbled to be working with so many talented individuals.”
