Tagline: He's not just hunting eggs... he's hunting YOU.

Plot: Twenty years ago, young Peter McKay watched his father decapitate his sister on Easter morning. Peter never celebrated the Easter holiday again... until now.

My rating: 4/10

Will I watch it again?  No.

Everything about this holiday retro-slasher is just below average.  The gore is simplistic which also relies on computer generated camera lens blood spatter, the acting is as you'd expect for a no budget picture but never crossing over into the so-bad-it's-good territory, the story is generic but without anything special to add and so on.  The music is sometimes worthwhile although some repetitive cues get played too long and often..  Overall the movie is missing a sense of fun.  There's no nudity (but not without ample opportunity), fun kills or any of the other stuff you'd need/want for a slasher picture to strive for.  I would say it's a good thing it's only 78 minutes long but it feels much longer.  Keeping this around 45 would've made it a little better and more easily digestible.   Now, having said all of that, It is producer/editor/writer/director Mogg's first film.  There are some moments where you can tell he had some ideas he wanted to try out.  With more experience he'll obviously get better.  It's an OK start.  I'll check out his other work.  He's got some great titles like BANGIN' VENGEANCE! (2011) (about talkin' tits), TEENAGE SLUMBER PARTY NIGHTMARE (2014), MASSAGE PARLOR OF DEATH (2015) and BIGFOOT ATE MY BOYFRIEND (2016).
