'Watership Down' is a terrifying movie based on a book by Richard Adams about a community of rabbits finding their way in the world. It usually has cute rabbits on the cover so it's usually mistaken for a children's book but the world of Watership Down is brutal and not all of the happy little bunnies survive.
But... it's about bunnies so that makes it a great Easter film, right? That's what someone at Channel 5 in England must have thought when they scheduled the movie to run in the afternoon on Easter day.
Naturally, some families were outraged but others just enjoyed the irony of the programming.
Sometimes kids are afraid of the Easter bunny but eventually we all grow out of that. Lots of people have pictures of their smaller selves crying on the lap of an adorable, smiling bunny. Unfortunately, some of us were right to be afraid as a child. These bunnies with make you have Easter nightmares all over again.
