Films: Leeches! (2003)
Location: Lake/Civilized Area
Height/Weight: That of average rats.
Summary: We've covered leeches before. Big ones in fact. But now, let's dial it back and give you more believable mutant leeches. Oh, and how about more than just a pair of them too?
History: At a local college, the swim team's tensions run high and there's more homoerotic subtext than you'll find at Brokeback Mountain (maybe). They're so desperate to be the best that they've been taking anabolic steroids for an extra boost (losers!). Naturally, when they practice at a lake, the leeches get them. But even after being removed, the leeches start to mutate due to the steroid-enhanced blood. Pretty soon, the college is overrun with monstrous leeches coming back for more.
Notable Kills: One guy's bondage kink turns him into an all-you-can-eat blood bar.
Final Fate: Eventually, a plan is hatched to lure the leeches into a pool to be electrified. It doesn't go quite according to plan, but in the end, the leeches are fried. Still, at least one swim guy plans on making more leeches, and is implied to have been the reason for all of this havoc...
Weakness: Anything conventional.
Scariness Factor: 3.5-Hordes of rather real-looking leeches coming at you to suck you dry and leave you a bloody mess. That doesn't exactly sound like the sort of way you want to go, huh? They may look cute a little on the outside, but anyone whose had to remove regular leeches can tell you that this will be ten times worse.
Trivia: -Once again, we have a film directed by David DeCoteau, the man who cursed us with "Creepozoids" and later, "A Talking Cat?!". This film is merely an example of his extensive homoerotic film career. He's...rather obsessed with young hunky boys. It's a bit creepy.
-This film was originally known as just "Swim Team". It makes you wonder if David wanted killer leeches in it in the first place.
