There was no limit to the horror ... no end to the Night Of The Lepus!
A hormone intended to alter the breeding cycle of rabbits overrunning Arizona ranchlands instead turns them into flesh-eating, 150-pound monsters in Night of the Lepus! Stuart Whitman (Eaten Alive), Janet Leigh (Psycho), Rory Calhoun (Motel Hell) and DeForest Kelley (Star Trek) are among the intrepid humans facing off against the behemoth bunnies, using guns, flames, dynamite and anything else in their grasp to battle their oversized, hungry tormentors.

The plot was lifted from Russell Braddon's 1964 Sci-fi novel The Year of the Angry Rabbit. The producer (A.C. Lyles) and director (William F. Claxton) were better known for making westerns, hence the proliferation of western actors in the lead roles. It's painfully obvious that everyone was out of their element. I suppose from Claxton's point of view, if he was going to be embarrassed he wasn't going down alone! He took everyone with him, all aboard the crazy train; we're about to crash big time.
In some alternate universe this is a masterpiece of filmmaking. It is beyond bad. The fact that they were all so deadly earnest makes this even more endearing. A stampede of bunnies is not to be missed. I count myself blessed to own a copy of this fabulous crap-fest. Just the thought of it makes me smile.
I Like Horror Movies
Yes, it's corny.. But come on it was made in the 60-70's!
We laughed and joked most of the movie. It isn't made to be a serious movie. Great to even watch with kids as there was little if any swearing, no nudity and the violence via the bunnies was so cheesy it shouldn't be taken seriously. We loved it, and we took shots every time a guy in a bunny suit attacked a person. One of the best and most unique horror films I own now. I'll have to track down the Mystery Science Theater version, I hear that is quite hilarious. While it literally isn't worth $20, the night of fun I had with my family watching this was. I would definitely suggest this to a friend.
It's the only "killer" rabbit movie in existence, and it's great.
This film is basically like taking a traditional 50's sci-fi horror about monsters and making it in color with a bit of gore....Yeah there is actually some GORE in this!
Not a lot mind you, but i wasn't expecting to see any. Not only that but it was pretty decent for its time. So, yeah that is the plot... i suppose i could explain it, but if you ever saw THEM! then you know the plot. It doesn't actually get that grand at the ending, but the basic story is similar.
It is a fun watch, a little cheesy and worth checking out.... especially the giant bunny paw swiping at Janet Leigh.
