deep in florida's darkest everglades, a brilliant scientist and a sexy government agent have developed a secret formula that could end world hunger and change civilization forever. Little do they know, however, that their arch nemesis is plotting to steal the serum for his own selfish schemes. Looting the lab and kidnapping the agent, the madman douses the scientist with the secret chemicals and leaves him for dead in the swamp. Mutated by his own formula, the scientist is transformed into a half human/half plant superhero who will stop at nothing to rescue the beautiful woman and defeat his arch nemesis...Even if it costs him his life! //
Horror vet Wes Craven wrote and directed this campy swamp romp adapted from the DC Comic of the same name. Adrienne Barbeau stars as cleavangelically blessed government agent Alice Cable, sent to the bayou to guard the brilliant Dr. Alec Holland. Holland is using recombinant DNA to create "a plant with an animal's aggressive power for survival." Let's hope none of that volatile secret formula gets spilled! Swamp Thing is an unusual mix of monster movie and superhero flick, but definitely an enjoyable ride. Craven deliberately uses comic-book-style wipes and transitions to keep us from taking anything too seriously, and Louis Jourdan keeps up the tone with his camp performance as the evil Arcane. Also keep an eye out for young Reggie Batts in a terrific deadpan performance as Jude, the helpful gas station attendant. --Ali Davis --This text refers to the DVD edition.
