I don't know if whoever edits this page ever looks at the discussions, but I wanted to give a FYI. "Curse of the Were-Rabbit" isn't the only (or even the first) film to feature a vegetarian monster. "Bunnicula" (from the children's book series about a vampire rabbit) was an ABC Afterschool Special and released on video in 1989.

Not that I'm the person who said it in the first place, but I'm not sure "Bunnicula" would count. For one thing, is a half-hour TV special a film? Less trivially, I don't think Bunnicula counts as a vegetarian monster in the same way the Were-Rabbit does. From what I remember, in "Bunnicula" 'vegetarian' and 'monster' are conflicting attributes: the characters who accept that Bunnicula only attacks vegetables don't consider him a monster, and the character who considers Bunnicula a monster does so because he doesn't believe Bunnicula won't attack people as well. "Curse of the Were-Rabbit" is still, as far as I know, the only horror film in which a monster is hated and feared because it's a vegetarian.
