Disturbing & memorable
8 April 2012 | by gamisanSee all my reviews

I doubt that this movie succeeds as the producers intended, but as a mix of terrible 70's animation, wrong-footed Christian teaching, and just...some very strange things, I think it's an artifact worth seeking out. Produced by Screen Images, a strange Lutheran production company, "Easter is..." seeks to explain the miracle of Christ's resurrection by way of a boy and his dog, some kidnappers, rats, a surprising amount of blood, and a wholly inappropriate resurrection from the dead. And Leslie Uggams. It's become a cliché to say "this show is like (genre) meets David Lynch", but there is a definite vibe of a Charlie Brown special that has unexpectedly veered off in dangerous, and strangely dreamlike, direction. Highly recommended.
