Another legendary bad movie. This 1972 effort, directed by William F. Claxton, 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'''.

In the interests of total fairness, wild rabbits ''can'' be surprisingly vicious when pushed to it (ask anyone who's ever read ''WatershipDown''). But trying to cast them as menacing monsters with a lust for human flesh is... proof that when this idea was greenlit the studio execs had just emerged from a decade spent under a rock, being whacked with a stupid stick. The clearly miniscule SFX budget doesn't help.

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.
