Stuart Whitman, Janet Leigh, Rory Calhoun, DeForest Kelley October 4, 2005 DVD New in new packaging. Run time: 90 mins. Aspect ratio: 1.85: 1. Originally released: 1972. When ... an experiment goes horribly awry, a herd of giant killer rabbits are sent galloping across the globe in this gross-out horror movie from 1972. The technical details of the plot, which involve a hormone designed to quash the rampant sexual proclivities of rabbits, are wisely dispensed with early on in order to allow the rampant bunnies enough screen time to rip into their human persecutors. As the giant beasts throw off the cute, loveable mantle they've worn for so long, a cast including Janet Leigh (PSYCHO) and DeForest Kelley (Leonard "Bones" McCoy from STAR TREK) attempts to fend them off. The primitive special effects and hammy performances have turned NIGHT OF THE LEPUS into a cult classic over the years, with viewers finding themselves tickled by the actors in bunny-suits who woefully try to replicate an exaggerated version of t Read more Show Less

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....
