Giant leeches are killing people in a Florida swamp. The game warden and a doctor can't convince the police this is happening, so the duo team with the locals in an attempt to stop the monsters. I am a big fan of 1950s science fiction/creature features, but unfortunately, this 1959 B movie doesn't have much going for it--that said, when we finally get to the leeches, we see they are guys in plastic suits with large mouths sewn on, and yes, they are just as wonderfully bad as you would expect.
The dialogue is as mind numbing as you can imagine, and the movie absolutely crawls--the film is only 62 minutes long, and maybe it's because I watched it on Macabre Theatre and had to tolerate Ivonna Cadaver going into and coming out of commercials, but the movie seemed to go on for four or five hours. When we finally do get to the end it is...well...underwhelming. There are a lot of fantastic films from this genre and time, and some so bad they're good and a blast to watch--Attack of the Giant Leeches qualifies as neither.
