Villains Spotlight #3: The Lepus

One of the most terrifying villains of all time. You see them all the time but you never think much about these deadly killers sitting quietly twitching their noses and waiting for the chance to strike, but Night of the Lepus brings that terror to the foreground.
Just as Jaws made people afraid to go into the water for years night of the Lepus made us fear carrot patches for fear that these giant mutant bunnies would capture us.
Just thinking about it brings back that horrible, horrible hopping and the folly of those scientists who used those rabbits for their testing and created giant, mutant, flesh eating rabbits.

In the end the only thing that stopped these ravaging creatures was the brilliant plan of Deforest Kelley's character who electrified the railroad then chased them into it. The movie doesn't explain why the rabbits didn't simply hop over the railroad tracks but I suspect that Deforest Kelly had made some brilliant mathematical deductions taking into account the size, weight and strength of those rabbits and knew that they would be unable to cover the distance between the two tracks.

Be advised that this clip is not for the faint of heart.
