Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Jeremy Wheeler
With obvious special effects that include everything from real rabbits stomping miniatures to splinters filmed in slow motion to attacks by men dressed in fuzzy long-eared suits, Night of the Lepus is all good, unintentionally campy fun. Sadly, the rest of the flick is nothing to be too concerned with. Stuart Whitman makes his usual '70s leading-man appearance, with his out-of-control hair and sideburns contrasting perfectly with his dangerously low-zippered shirt and old-man chest. Original scream queen Janet Leigh slums it up here as well with the help of uncomfortably tight jeans and some truly heinous dialogue. The real star is, of course, the killer rabbits, which one gets to see a lot of before the movie is done. Better taken in parts than as a whole, Night of the Lepus is silly to its core, even if it never seems to get the joke in any of its grueling 90 minutes.

    It's a movie about a scientific experiement gone haywire, and the result is giant flesh-eating rabbits. What more can you say? It's marvelous. OK, Dr. Zhivago it isn't....
