Rottentail is a 2018 American comedy horror movie that is based on the comic book series of the same name by David Hayes and Kevin Moyers. Adapted for the big screen by Brian Skiba, the movie stars Dominique Swain, Corin Nemec, and William McNamara in leading roles. The film follows the story of Peter Cotton, an introverted and awkward research scientist who is bitten by a mutant rabbit while conducting experiments at a laboratory. The rabbit turns him into half-human, half-rabbit creature, with super strength, magical powers, and a strong craving for carrots.
Peter now becomes Rottentail, a vigilante superhero, who sets out to clean up the corrupt city of Easter Falls, where he was born and raised, and seeks revenge on those who had wronged him in the past. But his plans of becoming the savior of Easter Falls backfire when he realizes that he is not the only mutant rabbit in town, and other evil creatures from his past resurface to destroy him.
As Rottentail, Peter embarks on a mission to stop his arch-nemesis, Dr. Michael Hunnicu, from using his mutant animal DNA to create an army of superhuman soldiers to rule the world. Along with his childhood friend, Jake, and his love interest, Daisy, Peter fights off evil minions, mutant rabbits, and other monsters to save the world from doom.
The film is a mix of horror and comedy, with tongue-in-cheek humor and a lot of bunny jokes. The movie heavily relies on CGI animation to bring the mutant rabbits and other creatures to life. The special effects are well-executed, and they add a touch of realism to the film.
Dominique Swain is brilliant as Daisy, the love interest of Peter, whose quirky behavior and love for rabbits add to the humor of the movie. Corin Nemec, who plays Dr. Michael Hunnicu, is convincing as the mad scientist who would stop at nothing to achieve his goals, even if it means sacrificing innocent lives. And William McNamara, who plays Rex, the corrupt mayor of Easter Falls, delivers a wicked performance that makes him the perfect villain.
Overall, Rottentail is a fun and entertaining movie that will appeal to fans of horror and comedy genres. It's a great movie to watch with a group of friends, and it offers a unique take on the superhero genre. The movie's script is well-written, and the cast delivers solid performances. But, it's the excellent execution of the special effects that make this movie stand out. If you are looking for a movie that is both funny and terrifying, Rottentail is definitely the movie for you.
