After local-moonshine swilling trapper Lem Sawyer sees a giant creature, people start disappearing. While searching for illegal traps Steve Benton and Nan Greyson, his girl-friend find Lem dying with giant sucker wounds on his body. One couple Liz Walker and Cal Moulton, forced into the water by her enraged husband Dave Walker, gets taken by the leeches. When police refuse to believe Dave's story, he hangs himself. Soon after this, 2 more trappers disappear, the local Game Warden Steve Benton gets involved. He and Nan's father Dr Greyson realize that the people were taken by the leeches and the leeches live in caves under the swamp. Using dynamite, the 4 missing bodies are discovered and the leeches are destroyed. Written by

The giant leeches are played by actors in sack-like suits made of thin black plastic and complete with fake "suckers" sewn on. See more »
Mike wires the explosives to the detonator box and the plunger is all the way up as he walks over to Steve and the rest of the group. Steve then walks over to the detonator box to set off the charge but now the plunger is down, he has to pull up before he pushes it down to set off explosives. See more »
I'm actually quite new to B-movies and this hilarious garbage was the first one I saw. The setting of the movie isn't all that bad but if there's one thing that cocks it up it's the ruefully and absolutely pathetic attempt at trying to create the "giant leeches".
They honestly look like sleeping bags with sad little rubber mis-shapen bits loosely stuck on! You can clearly see the wet fabric glistening on the costumes as they swim (or flop) through the water!
Another unnaturally bad thing is the daft noises that the leeches make. Whenever the leeches showed up you could always count on their deformed voice boxes bringing up lavatorial noises.
The actors look (and talk) as if they thought they had reached the pinnacle of movie acting, and then realized that they couldn't!
Ridiculous, cheap, and fun! I'm a fan of B-movies I recommend this for anyone for a sleeping-bag of evening laughs!
