THIS WEEK’S BEWARE THEATER? IT’LL NEVER LET YOU GO!!!
Beta Max TV has an episode of Beware Theater you won’t have to try to wrap your head around. It’ll wrap ITSELF around your head! Join Arachna Of The Spider People and her sidekick Deadly this week for ATTACK OF THE GIANT LEECHES!!!
When people start turning up missing around a swamp near a backwater Florida town, a game warden and a doctor investigate and find previously hidden underwater caves that are the home to giant, bloodsucking leeches. But then bloodsucking is what leeches do, isn’t it. Produced in 1959 by Roger and Gene Corman, this movie contains several sophisticated moralistic elements – that the first victims of the monsters are a cheating wife (1959 Playboy centerfold Yvette Vickers) and her lover. And that the leeches are guys in cheesy rubber leech costumes.
OK. Maybe not so moralistic, but lots of low-budget fun. And it’s the first Beware Theater of Summer on Beta Max TV. So what’s more summery than hangin’ out by the old swimmin’ hole and getting all the blood sucked out of you by a giant leech!
Arachna, Deadly, Beware Theater and ATTACK OF THE GIANT LEECHES – a refreshing summer treat on Beta Max TV!
