Attack of the Giant Leeches

From The Murky Underground Caverns...

When a drunken trapper reports that giant monsters are lurking in the local swamp, the townsfolk don't believe his inebriated ramblings until people start disappearing...

Welcome to 50s monster movie heaven in this basically awful but entertaining piece of tinpot cheapness.

The trapper turns up later, extremely dead and sporting great big sucker wounds all over him while a cheating couple are taken by the hideous leeches after being forced into the water by an understandably angry husband. The wronged spouse will hang himself later after police doubt his story.

As in most movies in the "When Nature Attacks' genre, the authorities only start taking action when it's too late (I bet the mayor of Amity Island is regretting not closing down those beaches now...) and the whole silly romp trots along at a good clip until the giant leeches can be destroyed. The leeches look terrible as is to be expected but, if you're going to sit down to watch a movie like this then you'll be well aware of these kind of issues and are probably looking out for the flaws as part of the fun anyway. Hardly a classic then but a must see for fans of films like 'Them'.

House on Haunted Hill

Do You Dare Enter...

Classic Vincent Price horror that was remade into a bells and whistles special effects fest in the 90s.

Here things are more simple, with the scares of the billowing curtains and bumps in the night variety. Price is a rich man who owns a haunted house and he offers a group of varied people a cash reward if they can stay over night in the house and not leave in a coffin.

Price is on top form, chewing the scenery in a great peak period, OTT performance. The creaky special effects and melodramatic acting from the rest of the cast really pays off...this is 50s B-movie horror at it's best, spooky and silly in equal measure.
