There's nothing except perhaps some campy 'so bad it's good' entertainment value. Giant rabbits are no scarier than ordinary rabbits. It's shocking there's so many actors in this like Janet Leigh or Stuart Whitman or Rory Calhoun.

For some reason I couldnt completely get into it.It was an OK movie.At times interesting & at times boring.I guess I couldnt get into it because I just cant imagine little bunny rabbits or bunny rabbits the size of dogs gone around ripping people to shreds.It's a really bad movie & I think either you'll get up & turn it off or you'll laugh all the way through

Nothing says horror like giant... bunny rabbits? Of all the things that movies have made giant (Ants, Spiders, Women), giant rabbits may be the least terrifying. This might be a good MST3K entry, but as an actual film, not so much.
