Production[edit]

Filming took place on October 2008 for a period of thirteen days, at a total cost of $13,000.[4][3] It was shot in black and white.[3]

Release[edit]

The film entered the 2011 PollyGrind Film Festival,[5] in which it won several awards including "Best Cinematography", "Best Editing" and "Best Overall Individual Performance in a Film" (to Rodleen Getsic).[6]

Controversy[edit]

The film raised some controversies and was banned in the UK by the British Board of Film Classification due to its graphic scenes of sexual and physical abuse.[7]

Reception[edit]

Critical reception for the film has been mixed.

Bloody Disgusting awarded the film a score of 2 / 4 stating, "The Bunny Game is a well shot and expertly edited work, but it’s not a film in the conventional sense. It’s more of a vicious visceral experience. Because of the style and the wholesale devotion of Getsic and Refro, The Bunny Game is captivating, but ultimately not an experience worth having".[8] Horror News.net gave the film a positive review, praising Rodleen Getsic's performance, and the film's editing.[9]

The film is listed at #37 in Complex Magazine's 50 Most Disturbing Films of All Time.[10]
