You could also watch it with "M" (1931) by Fritz Lang.

Synopsis:

Following the murder of a prominent leftist, an investigator tries to uncover the truth while government officials attempt to cover up their roles.

One of the shortest movie titles ever, the title also means "he is alive" in an ancient language.


That should be Z.



Indeed !

OK. Let's see ...

With their prey species killed off, rural ranchers are eager to get rid of an overpopulating animal, but local scientists' experiment turns deadly after a researcher's child claims one of the subject animals as a pet.

Sounds vaguely like Jurassic Park, but it's been decades since I saw that and I don't remember it that well.

A small clue...

This film pre-dates Jurassic Park.

Dr Google was of no help whatsoever.

Still haven't any idea.

Hokay.

Think "Creature Feature."

If I give other clues about the animal, it may give away the film. Hm. I will say that the genus name is in the title.

It sounds a bit like Black Sheep, but I don't remember if a kid takes one as a pet. And they don't have "ranchers" in NZ.

The plot is very similar (thanks Wikipedia), but, yes, no ranchers in NZ. And, not having seen it, I have to rely on Wikipedia's synopsis: no kid taking one as a pet. Environmental activists release a mutant sheep.

Here's another clue. The animal in question is NOT a sheep.

The film in question has never been on MST3K, but probably should have been.

It is a 1970s film.

It is based on a book, but the titles of each are different.

I think the clue that helped me most was the genus being in the title. I think it's Night of the Lepus but I'll wait to hear if I'm right. I vaguely remember seeing it on "The Ghoul" many years ago.

The description of the plot on Wikipedia, IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes mirrors perfectly the information we had been given initially.

I also understand why I had never heard of this film before.

You owe it to yourself to see it, if not for the bad special effects, for Janet Leigh. One of the other clues was going to be that two of the cast had Oscar nominations. And two of the actors were also the chief medical officers aboard ye old Enterprise

And it is less scary than THEM, which has a very similar plot. But ants?!? Eeeshkers!

A young martial arts student is sent on a quest to find the master who can guide him to the final level. He is forced to face the local shogun in a climactic final battle where he reaches the final level just in time to win the battle and, of course, save the girl.
