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.

A pungent little fable with a Rimbaudian side

Full Review… | July 1, 2012

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

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.
