Monster Monday: Night of the Lepus

Monster Monday: Night of the Lepus

Happy Monster Monday, fiends! Today we celebrate a monster even more fearsome than the Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog: the Lepus.

Night of the Lepus is an eco-horror film released in 1972 (the same year that Frogs was released — that was a great year for terrible horror). In the movie, human interference in wildlife populations and genetic experimentation on animals lead to an invasion of giant, bloodthirsty mutant rabbits. What the movie lacks in quality it makes up for with gallons of fake blood:

Behold the fearsome mutant killers responsible for this heinous attack:

If you’re ever feeling down, remember this: at least you’re not the guy who accidentally created a horde of giant murderous bunnies.

I’ll be back later this week with some more horror goodness. In the meantime: What’s your favorite killer mutant movie? Will you ever look at rabbits the same way again? Are you actually the guy who created a horde of giant murderous bunnies? Let me know in the comments!
