Critters

<b>The holiday:</b> Easter<br>
<br>
<b>The movie:</b> 'Critters 2' (1988)<br>
<br>
<b>In a sentence:</b> Man-eating little aliens descend on a small Kansas town and proceed to eat the populace.<br>
<br>
<b>Why it captures the holiday:</b> Easter has always been a weird holiday. Ostensibly, it's about celebrating Jesus Christ's resurrection after his crucifixion. But somehow, that celebration morphed to include cute and fuzzy bunnies hiding eggs in people's backyards. Bizarre. But "Critters 2's" title creatures are obviously purists, as they take on the Easter Bunny and leave his bloody body in the middle of an Easter Sunday service. Bizarre, just like the holiday.

Why it captures the holiday: Easter has always been a weird holiday. Ostensibly, it's about celebrating Jesus Christ's resurrection after his crucifixion. But somehow, that celebration morphed to include cute and fuzzy bunnies hiding eggs in people's backyards. Bizarre. But "Critters 2's" title creatures are obviously purists, as they take on the Easter Bunny and leave his bloody body in the middle of an Easter Sunday service. Bizarre, just like the holiday.
