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!!!!

This is the Marengo print of "Attack of the Giant Leeches" and although not perfect by today's standards it is the best copy I have seen to date. Contrast and general picture quality good though there is some softness of image in long shots....close-ups very good. As a fan of this particular film I can recommend its purchase.

Not stuck on it, but plenty of unintentional laughs.

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.

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.
