Night of the Lepus ★★ 1972 (PG)

Giant mutant bunny wabbits lay waste to the countryside after a failed hormone experiment goes horribly awry. Where's Elmer Fudd when you need him? Debate still rages about whether this is an incompetent B-movie horror flick, or an intentionally campy spoof of giant critter flicks. Watch it as the latter to get maximum enjoyment out of it. 88m/C DVD . Stuart Whitman, Janet Leigh, Rory Calhoun, DeForest Kelley, Paul Fix, William (Bill) Elliott; D: William Claxton; W: Don Holliday, Gene R. Kearney; C: Ted Voightlander; M: Jimmie Haskell.
