Editorial Reviews

Ken Clark, Yvette Vickers. Humongous blood-sucking leeches want the blood of anything-or anyone-who comes near! 1959/b&w/62 min/NR.

This is one of those movies that are so terrible that you have alot of fun watching it and making fun of it. The swamp natives are stereotypically ignorant backwater white trash, and the leading lady is ever so stereotypically ready to faint and hide her face at every scene, and always leaves the dreadful work up to the big strong men. That and make coffee ofcourse. She always was making coffee for the men. The acting is beautifully sub-par and almost seems as if it was shot while they were rehearsing their lines (except for the believeable character of the sheriff). You'll marvel at the scientific dialogue of the "doctor" and his theories of the leeches origin (hokey fourth grade science that is, almost as bad as the movie where the locals needed "SODIUM...WE NEED SODIUM! ") You'll cheer when the giant leeches attack the bad people, and love every leech sighting. This video edition is in terrible shape and is so dirty it's too dark to make out at times (usually the thick swamps)...but that's why it's so cheaply priced. I highly recommend this for camp movie buffs, and especially for B sci-fi lovers like myself. It's a gem. You know you want it, or you wouldn't have found it on Amazon...I mean...how many people go and search for "Attack of the Giant Leeches" unless they liked movies like that in the first place? Thoroughly enjoyable.

Format: DVD
I am as unoriginal as the other reviewers of this movie. Playboy Playmate Yvette Vickers (July 1959) is certainly one reason to watch this movie. Actually, I watched the movie for the articles. Oh, wait. This is a movie, not a magazine. Forget what I just said. Yvette was certainly a lovely young lady in this movie (she is older than my mother, meaning she is a grandmother now), but the star attraction is the rubbery-looking leeches that look about as menacing as Barney the Dinosaur. Well, Barney may be more threatening. Anyway, the leeches are a lot of fun and this movie has some moments of genuine tension.

Our story takes place in a swamp (where else would you find giant leeches?). There is a subplot involving a good-looking babe (Vickers) and her boyfriend and her hulkish husband. Forget all that nonsense and fast forward to the leeches practically leaping out of the water to capture the people who foolishly go into the water. Okay, maybe the leeches did not exactly LEAP, but they did float in a sinister fashion, slowly, I might add, and then pulled their victims under to be stored in a cave for leisurely blood sucking.

Nearly everyone else in this movie is clueless as to what is happening until almost the final minutes of the movie, when it suddenly becomes evident that GIANT LEECHES HAVE KIDNAPPED A BUNCH OF PEOPLE AND ARE SUCKING THEIR BLOOD OUT IN A CAVE. Had these people only read the title of the movie they might have had a clue earlier.

This movie could be another Roger Corman film that has so much schlock that it begs to be put out of its misery. However, with the exception of the lust...er...love story, this movie is played like a straight horror movie and turns out to be reasonably enjoyable.

OK, so there are some goofy hillbilly types running around the swamp, getting bled dry by gigantic leeches. Yes, the leeches are grown men wearing plastic trash bags. The hero is a living Ken doll. So what?! The ONLY reason to watch this flick is to see Yvette Vickers (Attack Of The 50 Foot Woman) in her underwear! She dances! She prances! She applies body-lotion! She parades about like the free-spirit she is! Hallelujah! I remember seeing her in this movie 33 years ago. I was 9 years old. I never forgot her! Buy this movie now...

It must have been great to live in the 1950's. All you had to really worry about was communists and radiation. The communists were evil soulless people who wanted to take over the Earth with a fleet of Sputniks, and radiation turned any animal into a giant killer.

So goes Attack of the Giant Leeches. Underwater monsters that kill without warning from the swampy deep. Apparantly they have an underwater cavern under the swamp where they take their victims to feed on them later. The leeches themselves are a marvel of 1950's technology. They look more like starfish than leeches. Actually they look like men wearing large, unformed rubber suits. Our hero ends up blowing the swamp with dynamite. Of course he doesn't want to, he's an environmentalist (they had those in the 50's). Before he blows the swamp to hell though, he must show his physique and skin dive for a good ten minutes, giving female viewers a thrill. But to no avail, fighting leeches with spearguns is futile.

Now lets get to why anyone would really watch this movie...drum roll please......Yvette Vickers. Oh she is hotter than a firecracker this one. Beautiful legs, face, and a killer bod that she doesn't mind showing off at all. She's Betty Page and Mamie Van Doren rolled up into one. Look how beautiful as she runs through the swamp. She's all wet and she's breathing hard which accentuates her beautiful bosom. Is she running from leeches? No, from her jealous fat husband with a shotgun. How's that for asubplot? Check this movie out, you can't beat the price.
