Preview: Swamp Thing (Special Edition Bluray)

Long before superhero movies were packing out multiplex cinemas, Freddy Krueger creator Wes Craven followed-up the success of Richard Donner’s SUPERMAN (1978) with this fondly remembered DC adaptation that brings a comic book favourite to livid and lunatic life!

Following the success of THE HILLS HAVE EYES (1977), SWAMP THING was also evidence of its director trying to adapt his style to less rough ‘n’ ready thrills and spills – and the result is an adventure thriller that highlights not just a mutant-monster with good intentions, but such sights as the timeless terror-star Adrienne Barbeau (THE FOG), future Twin Peaks star Ray Wise 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 outlay and plenty of action-packed special effects that hold their ground even today.

88 Films is delighted to present SWAMP THING in a very special edition BluRay release that packs a pristine punch and highlights this creature feature classic in all of its bayou-tinged brilliance!
