Wes Craven thought he was onto something big when he signed up to direct this DC Comics adaptation. Sadly, though, the movie bombed and Swamp Thing (1982) merchandise sat on the shelf. It’s still a pretty fun film, as scientist Ray Wise has an accident in his swamp lab and ends up as . . . well, a Swamp Thing (played by big Dick Durock in a monster outfit). Louis Jourdan has a field day as the evil Arcane, who’s also anxious to become a swampy monster. Adrienne Barbeau plays a government agent, and the real puzzler is why this PG-rated film didn’t take off once word got out about her flash of breastage during her swampy skinny-dipping scene. And now there’s even more of Adrienne on the DVD release, along with new footage of stripping gypsy gals!
