Night of the Lepus! Giant, killer bunny rabbits attack!

I searched the site and did not see any mention of this 1972 cult classic “Night of the Lepus”. This was another one of those cheaply made horror movies that ran all the time on late night television back in the 70s. As i mentioned in an earlier post, our family only received 2 tv channels when i was a kid. So you better believe if a movie about giant killer rabbits came on, I was going to watch it! This is the type movie that is perfect to watch with your friends and make fun of. It does have Janet Leigh of Psycho and Deforest Kelley of Star Trek in it. You can order it on dvd and it is on Youtube.


I love retro toys, television, movies and just about anything from the 70s and 80s.I frequent flea markets, thrift shops, garage sales and auctions hoping to nab my next pop culture trophy.

  1. I think what I love most about this film is how sincere it is. Everyone plays it completely straight, without a single wink or nod, in a film about killer bunnies. It’s brilliant.
