Remington, a murderous grifter cons his way into a mother's heart, putting on a fatherly facade to her cherished son, Nicholas. But the second she leaves for work, a torrent of abuse rains upon the gentle boy. Remington heads out for some hookers and invites his dilettante-child molester-drug-dealer buddy over to abuse Nicholas. In the meantime, the only comfort the boy gets is in confiding with his new pet bunny. Debauchery is at hand but Nicholas is nowhere to be found but someone wearing the mask of the beloved holiday hopper shows up ready to deliver a blood-splattered night of unspeakable carnage.

Always looking out for independents I came across this flick at a horror convention. Already heard that it wasn't your average horror I tried it out. I didn't regret it but I can understand that some will tear it down. It is really a slow starter, before things really go wrong it takes 45 minutes into the film. The first 45 minutes it's all about getting to know the new formed family and the wrong things about the stepfather. But luckily there are some misleads in the plot. Just when you think that the stepfather is the bad guy, with naked chicks and licking drugs from their titties, yes there's nudity, you will see something different happening and from that point on, it's gore galore. Of course, it's a low budget so they had to hide that with the effects used, so they chose to put the electricity down in the house and let the victims use flashlights. By doing that, the effects really look gory. The blood flows frequently. All actors are believable but I can understand that the retarded one is for some hard to swallow. I'm used to see old exploitations but here it was a bit waiting before the action starts but the use of some shots from the eye point of the mask really worked (remember Halloween). Glad that I have seen the unrated version, guess it was the first Easter flick I watched.
