Critic Reviews for Attack of the Giant Leeches (Attack of the Blood Leeches) (Demons of the Swamp)
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.
You just don't get titles like this anymore -- or movies.
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.More
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.More
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.More
