Science Transformed Him Into a Monster…. Love Changed Him Even More.
Long before superhero movies were packing out multiplex cinemas, Freddy Krueger
creator Wes Craven followed-up the success of Richard Donner’s Superman with
this fondly remembered DC adaptation that brings a comic book favourite to life!
Following the success of The Hills Have Eyes, Swamp Thing shows Craven
adapting his style from less rough ‘n’ ready thrills and spills – and the result is an
adventure thriller featuring a mutant-monster with good intentions, and a supporting cast of fan-favourites including Adrienne Barbeau (The Fog, Escape from New York), Ray Wise (Twin Peaks, Robocop) and David Hess (The Last House On The
Left) in one of his best-remembered villainous turns.
Released in 1982 to an appreciative cult following, Swamp Thing remains one of
Craven’s most mesmerising achievements – with a faithful DC-comic look and
action-packed special effects. 88 Films is delighted to present Swamp Thing in a
very special edition Blu-ray release that packs a pristine punch and highlights this
creature feature classic in all of its bayou-tinged brilliance!
