NIGHT OF THE LEPUS


NIGHT OF THE LEPUS
   Film (1972). Lyles/MGM. Dir William F. Claxton, starring Stuart Whitman, Janet Leigh, Rory Calhoun, DeForest Kelley. Screenplay Don Holliday, Gene R. Kearney, based on The Year of the Angry Rabbit (1964) by Russell BRADDON. 88 mins. Colour.
   Braddon's satirical novel was set in Australia, but the film dropped the SATIRE and switched the setting to Arizona. A test rabbit full of experimental hormones breaks loose and breeds with local rabbits. Suddenly hordes of gigantic carnivorous rabbits are attacking people, eating horses and demolishing houses. The film is endearing for its unintentional humour, enhanced by the commendably serious if wooden performances of all concerned, rabbits included.
