Movie Info

This hysterical drive-in favorite 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,

A pungent little fable with a Rimbaudian side

This particular monster opus is a fling equivalent, spontaneous and brisk and giddy. Sometimes, we all can use a one night stand.

Good, solid horror shlock from the '50s.

"Attack of the Glad Bags" might be more accurate.

Not as much fun as its title might suggest . . .

Audience Reviews for Attack of the Giant Leeches (Attack of the Blood Leeches) (Demons of the Swamp)

Not as funny as one would expect from a film featuring guys wearing garbage bags to pose as leeches. Story is awfully straightforward, the acting is bland, and the monsters are silly-looking. At least it was only an hour long.

The title tells you the entire movie, giant leeches attack some people, the end, there's nothing more to the movie. I don't recommend seeing this movie.

I just got this I-Pad app called Movie Vault, that allows me to stream all these old b-movies for free. It's like a little bit of Christmas for me. Anyway, there are already some pretty funny reivews of this movie, so I won't go on too much about it. It's a fun bad monster movie. Certainly not a hall of famer, but there are worse ways to spend it's 60 minute running time.
