Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Hans J. Wollstein
Obese general store owner Bruno Ve Sota is married to sluttish teenager Yvette Vickers, who is cheating on him with his best friend, Michael Emmet. The trio ends up in the swamp, Ve Sota literally hunting down the adulterers with a shotgun. That situation alone should have made for an interesting tale, a sort of humid James M. Cain for the beat generation. But this is a Roger Corman production and into the mix are thrown a couple of stunt divers wearing what appears to be small ponchos with tentacles, the leeches of the title, and a hunky game warden (Ken Clark), who displays a disconcerting ignorance of alligators, the game he is hired to protect. The results are uneven at best but the swamp locations, filmed at Pasadena's Arboretum of Tarzan fame, are certainly picturesque and the cave sequence, photographed, according to co-star Yvette Vickers, at the old Charlie Chaplin Studios, at least somewhat creepy.

    Why Yer ma wife

    Yeah, right! A Store owner in a swamp area who's best freind decides to have a fling with his wife.At one point the Wife kindly ask's her rather large husband, to stop looking at her. He reminds her that he can look at her...After all, she is his wife! We get the point pretty quickly that this is the worst mismatched pair of Socks we have seen for some time. Did I mention the store owner isn't exactly svelt, and his Wife is exactly svelt? I think she thought, either the 400 pound fatman or the lean and muscular best friend of the 400 pound fatman. The fatman catches up with the two philandrer's. He then starts shooting at the cad and his Wife, chasing them further and further into the swamp. Turns out the fat guy has a lot more endurance that anyone gives him credit for. Enter the giant leeches! They wind up grabbing the pair and down they go. The fatman winds up hanging himself over the guilt for sending the two to their death. Enter the game warden. He starts tracking the creatures, but tells his girl's dad to not put any TNT in the lake whatever you do. Well, Dad takes it upon himself to..Hey, I'm not going to give this away, if you know the ending, you might not buy the Movie. Buy this movie from Barnes and Noble and you will have something to watch when football season is over.
