"Night of the Lepus" is everything I dreamed it would be

There are people who say this movie isn't even good as a bad movie. I've always heard it's really boring. Still, I was very excited when my honey brought it home from a bargain DVD bin. Those scenes of "giant" rabbits loping through corridors in slow-mo? The cuts between stampeding cattle and hopping bunnies, never showing the two species in the same shot? Some people's standards are just way too high.

Also a work of genius is the trailer, which shows glowing eyes coming out of a black background and never once reveals "What...is...?" the mysterious threat. Because the answer is just too ludicrous for words. And I say that as someone with a large vocabulary.
