just came back from the local park where there was an easter egg hunt for the kids, with a young woman dressed as the easter bunny as the master of ceremonies.

and but so easter appears more about, at least on the secular workaday level, fertility symbols: eggs and bunnies.

so below, in honor of the holiday i find this trailer for night of the lepus. a horror movie about a giant killer wabbit.

there is a funny story about this movie. 1 afternoon anna was channel surfing and shouted, omigod! there's this movie about a giant killer rabbit!

i ran into the room and said, what, is it night of the lepus?

anna gives me this look. are you serious? i was just fucking with you. i made it up!

nope, i said, there is a real movie about a giant rabbit on a rampage. and i opened 1 of our movie guides as proof.

she rolled her eyes, and said, now i've seen everything.

enjoy. and happy easter!

There sure is. I saw this in Calacoto, Bolivia, at the American Cooperative School auditorium, sometime in the mid-1970s.

geof: this would make a great double-feature at a drive-in. let's say pair it with attack of the muchroom people. just proves my theory: there's a movie about everything.
