still from Case Rabbit

Joonas Makkonen finnish director is living the dream of every shortfilm maker: he got the chance to shoot one of his short films in feature lengt.. His short film Bunny the Killer Thing inspired the story for his first feature, that’s coming out with the same title soon.

Bunny the Killer Thing is half human and half rabbit which haunts anything that resembles the female genitals. That’s the idea behind the new Finnish horror-comedy feature film. Hilarious, with a good dose of gore and nudity, Bunny the Killer has all the trappings of a cult classic in the making. Now in post-production, the film will start touring the festival circuit in the spring of 2015, beginning at the Cannes Film Market in May. A Finnish cinema release is slated for November 2015. It features a predominantly Finnish cast, along with a couple of British and Irish actors.

Joonas Makkonen, the young film maker from Lapland in Finland has with his team gained previous successes from various international time
limited film races. 28-year-old Makkonen has directed short films such as Case Rabbit, Peto and Renewing Mikael. Case Rabbit won Best Creature Award in Cinefantasy International Fantastic Film Festival in 2011 at São Paulo.
