The lovable video gods over at The Scream Factory have announced an August 6th release date for their upcoming Blu-ray of Wes Craven’s Swamp Thing along with a list of special features. Read on for details.
They also confirmed that this release will be of the 91-minute U.S. cut of the film and not the 93-minute “unrated” international version, so no big beautiful bouncing Barbeaus for you!
Deep in Florida’s darkest everglades, a brilliant scientist, Dr. Alec Holland (Ray Wise), and a sexy government agent, Alice Cable (Adrienne Barneau), have developed a secret formula that could end world hunger and change civilisation forever. Little do they know, however, that their arch nemesis, Arcane (Louis Jourdan), is plotting to steal the serum for his own selfish schemes. Looting the lab and kidnaping Cable, Arcane douses Holland with the chemicals and leaves him for dead in the swamp. Mutated by his own formula, Holland becomes “Swamp Thing”-a half plant superhero who will stop at nothing to rescue the beautiful Cable and defeat the evil Arcane…even if it costs him his life!
