Giant Flesh-Eating Rabbits Ravage American Southwest After Scientist Slips Up! Such is the plot of this unintentionally campy horror outing. The trouble begins when a researcher's experiment to use hormone injections to control Arizona's burgeoning rabbit population goes terribly awry, causing the cuddly rodents to grow to enormous proportions. In order to facilitate their growth, the rabbits need extra protein, and what better source than the relatively slow-moving human population that surrounds their huge subterranean lairs?

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Impossible not to admire the total withholding of irony in Claxton's approach to this kamikaze project."
‑ , Time Out
"Well worth watching for those enamored by bad films that are unintentionally funny."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"The only thing more lifeless than the corpses in Night of the Lepus is the movie itself."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"It is this technical laziness as much as the stupid story or the dumb direction that leaves the film in limbo and places it in neither one camp nor the other - neither with Attack of the 50-Foot Woman nor with Flopsy, Mopsy and Cottontail."
‑ Roger Greenspun, New York Times
"Rabbits produce two things in obscene quanities: other rabbits and rabbit pellets."
‑ Eric Henderson, Slant Magazine
"Here comes the 'eater' bunny!"
‑ Staci Layne Wilson,
"The mind marvels at the bravery of the person who walked into the producer's office to pitch this idea."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"one of the worst films ever made"
‑ Christopher Null,
"A failure on every level"
‑ Shane Burridge,
