Phantom Rabbit Hitman (2010-13) is an action/comedy web series created by Jon Fitzpatrick and Tyler McCoy. Directed by John Fitzpatrick. Written by Jon Fitzpatrick and Tyler McCoy. Starring Jon Moore, Jeff Matson and Regina Rice. With Todd S. Davis as “The Bearded Man” and Cerina Vincent as “The Doctor”.
Not your average web series. Phantom Rabbit Hitman is weird, dark, funny and has a heart. What?! Watch the violent assassin rabbit, pain in the ass roommate, evolve into a hero and a best friend. The series starts small and becomes epic. Give it a chance and let it suck you in.
The web series was inspired by Jon Fitzpatrick and Tyler McCoy’s 2009 short film Lagomorph: The Destructor. Their “tale of Bunny revenge” was a spoof of the Tom Cruise film Collateral (2004). Watch the original short film here …
