5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVE YOU LIZ BABY
When I saw Roger Corman as the executive producer, I had to see this. The movie had his fingerprints all over it. A great cheesy production with drama, poachers, infidelity, jazz records, fat hicks, dashing leading men, and of course giant leeches. Yvette Vickers stars once again as a sleazy woman who likes to dress scantily in front of her husband's buddies and listen to...

3.0 out of 5 stars That is an awful big sucker.
The story takes place in a Florida swamp near Cape Canaveral where those atomic payloads keep falling. A swamp hunter comes back from the swamp with the tale of a strange creature that took four slugs from his mighty gun to dispatch. However he brings back no proof. That night wayward wife Liz (Yvette Vickers) just happens to be wandering around in the swamp when she...

The story takes place in a Florida swamp near Cape Canaveral where those atomic payloads keep falling. A swamp hunter comes back from the swamp with the tale of a strange creature that took four slugs from his mighty gun to dispatch. However he brings back no proof. That night wayward wife Liz (Yvette Vickers) just happens to be wandering around in the swamp when she spots is very same hunter that appears to have been leehcie- aided. Even though the Hunter really never touched a wayward wife the local authorities don't believe in giant leeches so they attributed his death to misadventure. It is not until several other people seem to be disappearing under the same mysterious circumstances that the authorities are finally starting to get curious.

Fat slob Dave (Bruno VeSota) catches his wife Liz on the very edge of the swamp fooling around with his best friend Cal (Michael Emmet). So Dave scares them off into the swamp with a shotgun. And you guessed it. They too become leehcie- aided.

Against the advice of the local game warden (Ken Clark) the local Doc Greyson (Tyler McVey) decides to use dynamite to sort this out. What will he find?

Mean time through the whole movie Liz Walker (Yvette Vickers) keeps hanging around near the leeches and you just know she needs to be eaten or at least sucked.

When I saw Roger Corman as the executive producer, I had to see this. The movie had his fingerprints all over it. A great cheesy production with drama, poachers, infidelity, jazz records, fat hicks, dashing leading men, and of course giant leeches. Yvette Vickers stars once again as a sleazy woman who likes to dress scantily in front of her husband's buddies and listen to loud jazz. Of course Yvette and her swamp lover Michael Emmet can't run faster than the obese Bruno VeSota can walk.
Ken Clark plays the game warden who answers his door exposing his blond hairy chest. The leeches look like men in cheap rubber suits. They keep their prey alive in a cavern and suck blood from them from time to time.

Bad acting and bad script. Great entertainment.

5.0 out of 5 stars This B Movie only Sucksssssss!!! in a good way!, 5 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This Movie is one of the B Movies that i don't find Funny! Sure the Movie is really old and very low budget, with not so great effects! But unlike other B Movies this one is quite Creepy, and could be a Brilliant modern remake if you had the right Director! The Creature idea for this Movie is Eerie, Leeches, Swaps and Mutation, all good for a modern Horror if done Correct. In fact if i was to remake this Movie, all i would change in the Plot would be the Radiation Mutation, for a Biological/Genetic one instead, id even keep the Characters pretty much the same to. Love this old B Movie for the idea and the Creatures, although they are very dated yet still Eerie & Creepy! Love them and the Movie!!! Only down side is the Picture quality and Sound are very poor, but ELSTREE HILL never make any effort when releasing old Classics onto DVD, SHAME ON YOU!!! YOU TW*TS!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hooray, 2 Aug 2008
This review is from: Mystery Science Theater 3000: Collection 6 [DVD] [1998] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
Mystery Science Theater should be viewed by every fan of Sci-fi, B-movies and Puppetry. It may take one or two episodes to get into, but once it grabs you, you'll never escape.

A man is shot into space and is forced to watch the worst movies ever made at the hands of two (rather) mad scientists. Our bejumpsuited hero, Joel (Later replaced by the equally likable Mike) is joined by two wise-cracking robot friends who help him jeer, cheer and ridicule the movies in order to preserve his sanity.

Though I have long since seen every single episode of MST3K, it will always remain with me. Every few nights I'll fire up an episode I haven't seen in a while and let the good times roll.
