The horror/comedy short is hopping on-line today.

With Easter coming up, and another group of homicidal children’s characters in theaters, filmmaker Sean Haitz gave us an exclusive excerpt from THUMPER’S REVENGE, a gruesome takeoff on a couple of the critters from BAMBI. The award-winning horror/comedy short, which we first told you about here, was written by Haitz and Mark Cerulli and stars Johnny Hoops, Clair Brauer, Haitz and Aaron Prager. The synopsis/tagline: “Screams echo in the meadow and blood will spill when hunters take aim at Bambi from the hill. They can run and they can plead, but Thumper is about to make them bleed.”

You can check out the entire short on YouTube.
