Night of the Lepus Review
Synopsis:Giant mutant rabbits terrorize the southwest!!
Night of the Lepus is one of those weird movies that make you wonder what everyone thought when they made this. This film is about rabbits that have been genetically altered in the hopes of slowing down their reproduction cycle but have instead start growing at alarming rates. Worst yet, they have begun eating people. These 150-pound rabbits are still funny to watch even though their all monsters.
I thought the film was okay, but it lacked real scary elements. Bunnies are running everywhere while the director threw tons of blood into the mix. It is a change from the average usual horror movie but still not my cup of tea. I found that it dulled all of my senses except humor. I laughed my ass off in the beginning but later was semi-bored.
