Most fan-made projects can't hold a torch to the impressive world of Easter Peeps and dioramas. There's something about those marshmallow chicks and bunnies that were just made for the world of Hollywood. For the second year in a row, The Washington Post has held their Peeps contest, and once again, the world of film is heavily, wonderfully, and comically represented. The people that send in these recreated scenes -- they've got some serious talent ... and time on their hands.
Would Ghostbusters have been as eerie if the gigantic Stay Puft monster was actually an enormous Peep with no mouth? And I think the Coens were missing out when they made No Country for Old Men with humans instead of Peeps. There's just something about marshmallow and bloody gore that goes together. But these are only the tip of the iceberg -- other movies that got the Peeps treatment this year: The Wizard of Oz, Full Metal Jacket, Mars Attacks, The Birds, A Christmas Story, Amadeus, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, and Casablanca.
After a few years of these killer recreations, I'm thinking that Hollywood should dump those competing Easter bunny projects and direct their attention to the Peeps. Check out some of our favorite movie-related Peep creations in the gallery below, then view the rest over at The Washington Post.
