In a community near a swamp, a local dweller sees a couple of giant monsters but nobody believes him. Later, the cuckold Dave Walker finds his slut wife Liz Walker cheating on him with his friend Cal Moulton. He chases the couple through the swamp, and forces them to jump into the water. The leeches take them and shocked Dave is arrested and accused of murder. Two other locals decide to look for the bodies of Liz and Cal to get the prize of US $50.00 per body, and also vanish in the swamp. Finally, game warden Steve Benton organizes a patrol to investigate the caves under the swamp, finding the lethal giant leeches.Written by

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 »

One of Roger Corman's earlier efforts, and not one of his better ones. Director Bernard Kowalski has done better work, too ("Ssss...."). The main reason (the ONLY reason, actually) to watch this, though, is Yvette Vickers. Probably best known for playing Honey, the town tramp in the original "Attack of the 50-Foot Woman," Vickers absolutely oozes sex out of every pore without really trying. What Sue Lyon couldn't do in "Lolita," and what Carroll Baker couldn't do in "Baby Doll," Yvette Vickers does in "Attack of the Giant Leeches": show a young woman with a sexual draw so overpowering that you understand why an old man would kill to keep her and a young man would kill to have her. Check out "Reform School Girls" and "Attack of the 50-Foot Woman" to see her to even better advantage.
