Cole Hillman's Arizona ranch is plagued with 'mongrel' rabbits, and he wants to employ an ecologically sound control method. As a favor to college benefactor Hillman, college president Elgin Clark calls in zoologist Roy Bennett to help. Bennett immediately begins injecting rabbits with hormones and genetically mutated blood in an effort to develop a method of disrupting rabbit reproduction. One of the test subjects escapes, resulting in a race of bloodthirsty, wolf-sized, man-, horse-, and cow-eating bunnies. Eventually the National Guard is called in for a final showdown with the terrorizing rabbits. Written by

They were born that tragic moment when science made its great mistake... now from behind the shroud of night they come, a scuttling, shambling horde of creatures destroying all in their path. See more »
At long last Night of the Lepus has been put out on DVD. After catching most of this gem on TV almost 15 years ago, I was an instant fan and recommended it to anyone who has a taste for the giant creature genre. About 3 months ago I began thinking about Night of the Lepus again and found that is would soon be released on DVD. Oh joy!
Well, I just watched this beauty again, and it's everything I remembered and more. Straight off the bat, it's got Rory Calhoun. Rory Calhoun just keeps popping up in many of my favorite flicks. The true charm of the movie is in the creative ways they had to film bunnies and the absolute seriousness with which the characters treat the ridiculous disaster that has come their way. If giant rabbits appeals to you even slightly, seek out this film. You won't be disappointed.
