You wouldn’t expect a were-rabbit to be as terrifying as a werewolf, but then, you’re not a giant vegetable. In 2005’s Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, the monstrous bunny is terrorizing an English country village, ravaging the local gardens and laying waste to what should have been prize-winning veggies. Eccentric inventor Wallace and his silent but brainy dog Gromit have tried to keep the town rabbit-free by capturing all the local bunnies with the aim of brainwashing the love of vegetables out of them, but a bizarre accident involving a Wallace, a captive rabbit, and the brainwashing machine results in the horrifying mutation that turns Wallace himself into the giant, fluffy vegetarian vandal.
It’s up to Gromit, as usual, to save the day, with a scheme that involves Wallace’s favorite stinky cheese. Okay, the whole were-rabbit idea is more silly than scary, but it’s also pretty brilliant, like the rest of Aardman’s endlessly inventive Wallace & Gromit series. This is the only one of the pair’s stop-motion movies that’s feature-length, but unlike the were-rabbit itself, it’s proof that sometimes, bigger really is better.
