“Hick country continues to suck”

Films: Attack of the Giant Leeches (2008)

Alias: None

Type: Mutant

Location: Lake

Height/Weight: That of an average human arm.

Affiliation: Neutral

Summary: Way back in the 50s, Roger Corman gifted us with gigantic garbage bags wearing suction cups that he called leeches, along with the tale of the destruction they wrought. Many, MANY years later, the leeches are back...though whether they received an upgrade or a downgrade is up to you.

History: Years of pollution and overhunting have given rise to a lakeside nightmare. Leeches have been mutated, and the lack of natural prey has caused them to turn on humans. Soon, the rivers are going to be filled with blood, or lack thereof.

Notable Kills: Nothing special.

Final Fate: Pretty much every leech is blown up or stabbed to death. Though at least one managed to hitch a ride on someone before her death. It was most likely squashed before much more could be done.

Powers/Abilities: None.

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 3-If you can believe it, these things are just a bit more plausible than the last giant leeches, if only because they actually look like them. But that's about it aside from the horrific bloodsucking, as these things are rather painfully obvious in how fake they are. Still, not the worst effort, we'll give it that.

Trivia: -This film was directed by Brett Kelly, a man dead set on making some rather schlocky cinema that no one remembers. "She-Rex", anyone? It...it had a stop-motion Spinosaurus in it...puppet T-rex too...guys?

-Although leeches are hermaphrodites, they are known to reproduce sexually as well. This is usually done through sensual intertwining of the bodies and no, I do not know why I was asked to write this here. Should have saved it for the previous leech bio in this decade, honestly.

A slogan for all corrupt companies.
And it's not Project Razorteeth.
Even Leeches need to play themselves some Candy Crush. No taste at all.
