Today's Leap Day – the one holiday that doesn't have a horror movie devoted to it. To correct that situation, we've asked each and every FEARnet employee to submit a pitch for a FEARnet film they would make that's based on, inspired by, or entitled 'Leap Year'. Our next proposal comes from Brian Rowe. Check it out below.
Every February 29th the Lepus return to devour our planet– few humans ever survive, but every Lepus Year more and more return and this year may be humanity's last stand! The Lepus are an advance race of intergalactic rabbit-esque creatures with a taste for human flesh. When Leap Year comes, they return in their spaceships to feed on humanity. Millions upon millions of Lepus feast on the tortured remnants of the once-proud human race. Few humans survived the last Lepus visit. Now that Leap Year is a few days away, humanity braces for the final onslaught. Can the last vestige of warriors led by natural-born leader Adam Drake (Mads Mikkelsen), grizzled-veteran Jack Walker (Jeff Bridges), explosives expert Amber Tarnasis (Sophie Marceau) and femme fatale Kay Ledbetter (Marion Cotillard) save the human race before its light is forever extinguished?!
