"A depraved bloodsucking sinister
force is terrorizing the backwoods. When flirtatious sexpot
Liz Walker (the seductive Yvette
Vickers) is thrown into the swamp
by her jealous husband (Bruno
Ve Sota), she's taken hostage by
giant leeches and held captive in their underwater cavern
of horror. Other townsfolk are soon abducted by the leeches,
joining Liz in the monster's subterranean lair. The locals
desperately battle the mammoth leeches in an explosive climax!"

Now, this is a true B-movie! The acting
is very bad from just about everyone involved and the monsters
were truly laughable. The guys in the leech suits must have
had lots of fun seeing the result of this (at least I hope
they did..). The portrayal of the southern people was pretty
hilarious, but the accent went by me sometimes. I doubt I
missed anything important though.. The pace is a little bit
too slow at some points to make it interesting, but the fact
that it's only about an hour long makes it bearable.
Well, bottom line is, you don't sit down to watch a movie
with this kind of title and expect something great, or at
least you shouldn't. This is very much a "so bad it's funny"
type of movie, and it works well at that! If you're into old
(and bad) B-movie horror, you should check this one out. It's
also been on MST3K, and I'm sure that is a funny episode!
