Critic Reviews for Attack of the Giant Leeches

All Critics (10)

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.

Audience Reviews for Attack of the Giant Leeches


Leeches attack people in a swamp, there's also a romantic triangle subplot that has no relation to the film. The leeches also were sentient enough to know when to attack, evidently you can tell they were actors wearing leech suits.

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.
