Today’s Random Tokusatsu: Rabbit Horror 3D (2011)

Today’s selection: Rabbit Horror 3D (2011, dir. Takashi Shimizu)

Subgenre: Kaidan

Available from: Well Go USA

I think I already talked about this one somewhat, but Rabbit Horror 3D, or Tormented 3D as it’s called in the US, is a surreal horror mystery about a mute girl, her brother, and some creepy rabbits. It’s playing with possibly unreliable narrators, and makes several callbacks to Shimizu’s previous film, Shock Labyrinth 3D. As is typical for this style of movie, it’s more about eerie visuals than necessarily making sense, or perhaps it’s the dissonance when things don’t make sense that causes a sense of unease. Well, that, and a bunny costume.
