'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... it's 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.

For those of you who haven't seen it, please, watch the trailer and imagine little kids watching this with their families on a lazy Easter afternoon.

This toddler was saved by his neighbors holding out quilts for him to land in. Miraculously, he got away without a scratch. 

According to South China Morning Post, he was trying to get out of the room after locking his grandmother out while playing hide and seek.  He was examined by a doctor who gave him the all clear so this story has a happy ending.

It happens so fast but the reporter, Alex Savage, managed to jump out of the way in the nick of time. He posted a follow up video on Facebook assuring everyone he was okay and crediting his photographer, Chip Vaughan, with shouting the alert that saved his life.

Close Call!! Almost got hit by a car live on-air, heart still pounding.

The driver of this truck overcorrected after slightly hitting the other side of the bridge railing. This scary video shows the dashboard view and later inside the truck as it punches through the concrete barrier and lands in a park below.

Thankfully, no one was hurt. The park was unoccupied at the time and the driver, who was ejected from the truck, managed to survive after a few weeks of intensive care.

The Zika virus is responsible for what the World Health Organization calls a global health crisis. The disease is spread by mosquito bites and can cause terrible birth defects like microencephaly when pregnant women are infected. It's also been linked to the development of Guillain-Barré syndrome, a rare condition that causes the immune system to attack nerves. 

Until now it has only been a problem transmitted by mosquitos in South American countries. Now a person in the United States has caught the Zika virus on home turf. The good news is, we're probably not flooded with mosquitos that carry the virus (yet), the bad news is that it was sexually transmitted. According to NBC DFW:

The first person in Dallas County has been infected with the Zika virus without traveling outside the U.S., becoming the first person to acquire the virus in the country, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The patient was infected through sexual contact, not through a mosquito bite, according to county health officials.


Nature is getty scary, guys, and who better to put that into words than Twitter.

There's a tradition, especially in New Orleans, to have a King Cake during Mardi Gras. It's a festive cake with a small, plastic baby hidden inside which will bring you luck if you find it. This tradition has translated into the horrifying King Cake Baby, a mascot brought out around Mardi Gras season by the New Orleans Pelicans.

This is coming from an NBA team who recently gave their year round mascot "plastic surgery" to make his face a little less scary.

We've been served up some unexpected renditions of the infamous Godzilla; from the box-jawed mother of Matthew Broderick's 1998 version to the more recent 2014 encounter Bryan Cranston had with what might as well have been the mystery beast from Cloverfield.

Anyone see that? Nope? Oh, okay. End credits.

Great promise lies on the approaching summer horizon with the coming release of Godzilla: Resurgence. This will be the first Japanese Godzilla movie in over 10 year's time.

The new dropped photos of the supposed production designs employed to bring life to the newest Godzilla were reportedly leaked by a fan group on Twitter on Saturday.

What we have as the best fan theory proposed so far, kind of not really, is that this is the original 1954 Godzilla that somehow managed to start up with regenerating itself.

According to i09 this Godzilla is some kind of 'hybrid' design, never until now attempted in a Japanese Production. This production design weds computer graphics with a gigantic tower of a doll of rippling red muscle that portrays much resemblance to that of an anatomy chart.
