One Sheet Poster USA International with the best art for this film.Night of the Lepus (also known as Rabbits) is a 1972 American science fiction horror film directed by William F. Claxton and produced by A. C. Lyles. Based upon Russell Braddon's 1964 science fiction novel The Year of the Angry Rabbit, the plot concerns an infestation of mutated rabbits. The film was the first science fiction work for producer Lyles and for director Claxton, both of whom came from Western film backgrounds. Well known actors that had starred in westerns as well as other generes that the pair had worked with were brought in to star, including Stuart Whitman (City Beneath The Sea), Janet Leigh (Psycho), Rory Calhoun (Motel Hell) and DeForest Kelley (Star Trek). Shot in Arizona, Night used domestic rabbits filmed against miniature models and actors dressed in rabbit costumes for the attack scenes. Widely panned by critics, Night of the Lepus has since gained cult status for its laughably poor quality and any original movie posters are now highly sort after.
