The hysterical drive-in favorite Attack of the Giant Leeches pits a community of swamp-dwelling yokels against the silliest-looking monsters since the shag-rug aliens of The Creeping Terror. Despite the strange sucker-marks found on a dead trapper's blood-drained body, and a man's story of seeing his unfaithful wife and her lover dragged into the swamp by the creatures, the police refuse to acknowledge that something freaky is going on. Only after more trappers disappear does the local game warden decide to take action, which he does with a vengeance. When the leech lair is discovered in a cave beneath the swamp, explosives are employed to blow them to little rubber bits. It's hard to be too critical of this early film from prolific TV-director Bernard L. Kowalski (Night of the Blood Beast), since executive producer Roger Corman allocated a budget for this production that would hardly cover the catering bill on a major studio film -- even in 1960! Look carefully to spot the scuba tanks beneath the leech costumes.

Yeah, right! A Store owner in a swamp area who's best freind decides to have a fling with his wife.At one point the Wife kindly ask's her rather large husband, to stop looking at her. He reminds her that he can look at her...After all, she is his wife! We get the point pretty quickly that this is the worst mismatched pair of Socks we have seen for some time. Did I mention the store owner isn't exactly svelt, and his Wife is exactly svelt? I think she thought, either the 400 pound fatman or the lean and muscular best friend of the 400 pound fatman. The fatman catches up with the two philandrer's. He then starts shooting at the cad and his Wife, chasing them further and further into the swamp. Turns out the fat guy has a lot more endurance that anyone gives him credit for. Enter the giant leeches! They wind up grabbing the pair and down they go. The fatman winds up hanging himself over the guilt for sending the two to their death. Enter the game warden. He starts tracking the creatures, but tells his girl's dad to not put any TNT in the lake whatever you do. Well, Dad takes it upon himself to..Hey, I'm not going to give this away, if you know the ending, you might not buy the Movie. Buy this movie from Barnes and Noble and you will have something to watch when football season is over.
