'Watership Down' is a terrifying movie based on a book by Richard Adams about a community of rabbits finding their way in the world. It usually has cute rabbits on the cover so it's usually mistaken for a children's book but the world of Watership Down is brutal and not all of the happy little bunnies survive.
But... its about bunnies so that makes it a great Easter film, right? That's what someone at Channel 5 in England must have thought when they scheduled the movie to run in the afternoon on Easter day.
Naturally, some families were outraged but others just enjoyed the irony of the programming.

Others support the movie and think parents these days are too sensitive.

We can only guess that whether they'll show it next year depends on how many parents called complaining of nightmares.
