The Curse of the Were-Rabbit (2005)
Were Bunny Death Scene
Creation of the monster. Angry mob hunting down the 'monster'
P.C. Mackintosh looks exactly like E.E. Clive's character, P.C. Jaffers.
Wallace munches on a carrot and says What's Up Dog?
The name on the giant carrot sign at the veggie stand is Harvey's. Harvey is also a film about a giant rabbit.
At the end of the aeroplane fight between Gromit and Philip, Gromit pulls a lever to open the plane's bomb doors, and Philip screams as he falls out of the bottom of the plane. These, and the camera position showing his fall, are a reference the scene in Dr Strangelove in which Major Kong screams while he rides the nuclear bomb as it falls out of the B-52.
The whole process of the pivoting Beds, sliding down chutes, etc into the Van is an obvious reference to Gerry Anderson's Puppet Show "Thunderbirds"
Car in the tunnel sequence
The flying scene where Quatermaine's dog is chasing Gromit in the planes it flies a "red Baron" and snicker like Muttley does
The churchyard has the same statue of Pazuzu as the one featured in The Exorcist
Victor calls Wallace the Were Rabbit Bunny Boy which is the same name Tigger calls Rabbit.
When Victor Quartermaine challenges Wallace to a fight and is prancing around egging him on is almost a shot for shot of the Black Knight prancing and egging on King Arthur in the Holy Grail
Wallace calls Gromit Silly old Pooch the same way Christopher Robin calls Pooh Silly old Bear
Gromit turns on the radio briefly and "Bright Eyes" is playing
The werewolf transformation scene is the same as in AWIL.
the buttons "Light Rain", "Heavy Rain" and "Heavy Loam" on the dashboard of the Anti-Pesto van look like the three buttons on K.I.T.T.'s dashboard (Auto Cruise, Normal Cruise, Pursuit)
Wallace says 'I'm in the Mood, The Mood for Food!'
car driving through tunnel and Wallace crying "I don't want to be a rabbit"
(Rabbit in "Speed Demon" section)
The rocket ship can be seen on the wall in the opening credits
First of three film titles mentioned by Lady Totty in a row

When the were-rabbit bites off the carrot neon sign and spits it back onto the van, this references the T-rex biting the goat from the chains and then spiting it back onto the jeeps.
Third of three film titles mentioned by lady Totty in a row
a moving bump of earth following a vegetable (here, the were-rabbit following the vegetables)
Title used as a barber shop name, Wallace falling in love, a multitude of animals (in this case, Rabbits) involved, one of which being particulalry troublesome (in this case, Hutch); the titular twosome running a business, and a villainous dog
When wallace hides his transformed rabbit hands behind his back, it mimicks the same shot of 'Sex Machine' in Dusk till dawn hiding his vampire hands.
Gromit trying to prevent being pulled down the tunnel echoes Eddie Carr trying to save the trailer by going into reverse & full throttle
Victor refers to Wallace as "Bunny Boy".
In order to save Gromit from falling, Wallace/were-rabbit (1) holds Gromit to his chest, (2) cushions the shock by landing on his back and then (3) appears to be dead until he wakes up. Mighty Joe Young saves the child on the Ferris wheel in just the same way.
Scene in a hidden vegetable shrine
PC Macintosh has almost the same voice as Brian Potter. Both characters are played by Peter Kay.
On its first raid, the were-rabbit leaves behind a 3-clawed scorch onto the foil, similar so those on the JP3 posters & the opening title
"This will be a night to remember" whilst watching fireworks

Reference to the Wallace & Gromit film
Carmela confronts AJ about being fired from Blockbuster Video for stealing promotional items and selling them, he protests that they would have been thrown out anyway and the large standee for Wallace and Gromit was environmentally wasteful. Presumably he's referring to this film since it was recent at the time.

"Drive out the monster": townspeople chasing giant rabbit armed with pitchforks and garden forks
Monster climbs tower holding girl, chased by planes
After Were-rabbit falls from the tower and "dies", Wallace slowly fades back into view with energy loops.
Wallace cries into his rabbit ears just like the Cowardly Lion
As Gromit is held down over wing of the plane by the other dog, it is very similar to the carousel fight at the finale of "Stranger on a Train"
Like Peter Cushing's Van Helsing, the reverend inprovises a crucifix when faced by the monster (albeit out of cucumbers rather than candlesticks, and to no avail).
Melding of two creatures
During the plane chase the plane Gromit is in is a Sopwith Camel, which Snoopy imagined he flew followed by the other plane which was a Fokker Dr.I which the Red Baron used. Grommit does have a slight resemblence to Snoopy
The first time that the transformation visibly happens, the wererabbit looks at his hand becoming a claw (actually, a furry paw) and screams.
At Lady Tottington's party one of the guests wearing a hood just like Kenny's is startled by the giant were-rabbit and falls over in a "oh my God they killed Kenny" manner
The "Willis and Crumble in: Better Gnomes and Gardens" clip is based on The Curse of the Were-Rabbit.
