No, really. The idea is that experimental hormone injections, intended to stop the rabbits' breeding as an environmentally-friendly form of pest control, actually cause them to become Giant Killer Bunny Rabbits. One dosed-up bunny escapes into the wild and starts breeding with the local population. Suddenly there are hordes of Giant Killer Bunny Rabbits running around, and it's all very ironic. Or something.

Another legendary bad movie. This is the story of how [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries Doctor [=McCoy=]]] (OK, OK, Creator/DeForestKelley, but in a ''really'' orange turtleneck) helped Stuart Whitman, Janet Leigh and Rory Calhoun save the world from a herd of '''Giant Killer Bunny Rabbits'''.
