Jarv’s Schlock Vault: Night of the Lepus

Night of the Lepus poster

Having hopped back on the terrible film horse last week with the bloody silly Street Warrior, I thought I’d go back in time in the Vault to dig out one of the absolute classics of rancid cinema. I’m not feeling brave enough for exploitation, or anything remotely rapey, at the moment, which ruled out an awful lot of the obvious choices.

Jarv’s Rating: 2 and a half Changs out of 4- mad as a box of frogs.

Hell Comes to Frogtown is insane. That’s honestly the only description I can come up with to describe it- it’s just completely nuts. It was clearly written by a group of people who came off their medication before medical professionals recommend, obviously directed by committee, and quite simply one of the funniest B-movies from the 80’s. It’s also a completely necessary survival manual for repopulating the Earth in the event of Nuclear War. Read More…
