10. Antrum: The Deadliest Film Ever Made (2018)

Dubbed “The Deadliest Film Ever Made,” Antrum is a chilling mockumentary that explores the cursed legend of a lost movie, reputed to cause death to those who watch it. This meta-horror layers a story within a story, where the film’s alleged lethal history intertwines with the unsettling narrative of two siblings delving into hellish realms to save their deceased pet. It’s a mind-bending trip down the rabbit hole, where reality blurs with eerie folklore, perfect for those who like their Easter eggs filled with dread. It also has the cutest evil anthropomorphic squirrel, which if that isn’t Easter, I don’t know what is.

9. Bunny the Killer Thing (2015)

Hold onto your carrots, because Bunny the Killer Thing is hopping mad in the most ludicrous way possible. This Finnish horror-comedy features a half-human, half-rabbit monstrosity with a one-track mind, turning a snowy cabin retreat into a ludicrous bloodbath. It’s absurd, over-the-top, and unapologetically raunchy, delivering laughs and shocks in equal measure. If you thought Easter bunnies were cute and cuddly, this monstrous hare is here to violently correct that assumption.

7. Alien (1979)

Easter eggs take on a terrifying new dimension in Ridley Scott’s Alien, where the iconic scene of an alien bursting forth from its human host parallels the holiday’s theme of rebirth in the most horrific way. This sci-fi horror masterpiece combines the fear of the unknown with the claustrophobia of space, creating a tense, atmospheric experience. The film’s creature, designed by H.R. Giger, is a nightmarish inversion of Easter’s life-affirming symbols, making it a must-watch for those who prefer their springtime with a side of cosmic horror.

6. The Silence of the Lambs (1991)

Hop into the mind of a killer with The Silence of the Lambs, where Clarice Starling (Jodie Foster) navigates a psychological maze to catch a murderer with the help of the cannibalistic Hannibal Lecter (Anthony Hopkins). This thriller, with its iconic moth imagery symbolizing transformation and rebirth, twists the Easter theme into a chilling narrative about the hunt for a skin-collecting psychopath, offering a gourmet blend of suspense, horror, and unforgettable performances. Also, the sad ol’ lamb fable at the film’s heart is pretty darn Eastery.
