Peter's (Corin Nemec) is a somewhat nerdy scientist who has always had
a soft spot for rabbits. And if he's ever had a traumatic experience in
his whole life, it was when a bully snapped the neck of his favourite
bunny rabbit, killing it in the process. And this bully has since grown up
to be preacher Jake Mulligan (William McNamara). But Mulligan is really
into preaching more for the tax-free money than anything else, and since
he has learned the church of Easter Falls is built above a gold ore, he
wants to usurp the building "in the name of god", to then turn
it into a (literal) gold mine, the profit going into his own pockets of
course. Now this alerts lovely Anna (Dominique Swain), daughter of the
resident preacher who doesn't want her father's church go to a
moneygrabber. Now she knows that Peter has a weak spot for her, and that
he has a grudge against Mulligan, so she figures he might help her in her
fight - which Peter is indeed willing to, but there's one problem: In an
effort to save some rabbits from a lab neighbouring his, he has been
bitten by some monster or other, and now gradually turns into a
rabbit-man. But while he more and more resembles a rabbit on the outside,
he also turns from a nerd who couldn't hurt a fly into a ruthless killing
machine, Rottentail, and now he dishes out revenge to all who've ever
wronged him, and that includes Mulligan rather by mistake than by design,
even though Peter still shows feelings for Anna. This soon puts the army
on the map, and army general Phelps (Tank Jones), who has been physically
enhanced by Dr Stanley (Gianni Capaldi), the very man from the lab next
door to Peter's ...
Rottentail is loud, it's gross, it's gory, at times
it's silly and also crude - and it's a hoot to all fans of horror comedy.
Now in its anything-goes approach it does of course betray its comicbook
roots - which is of course not at all a bad thing, especially since the
movie's really uncompromising in this attitude. Now story- and stylewise, Rottentail
is most reminiscent of horror a monster b-movies of the late 1980s and
early 1990s, but with its very own humouristic spin attached to them,
which is rather certain to bode well with fans, with some wonderfully
grotesque gore effects and some suitably over-the-top performances -
with special praise going to Corin Nemec and William McNamara here -
really hitting this one home.
