Scream Factory Resurrects Wes Craven's Swamp Thing For Blu-ray

Vincenzo Natali Talks Swamp Thing

One superhero whom we feel never really got a fair shake on the big screen is DC Comics' Swamp Thing. Yes, Craven's film (let's not even talk about its sequel) was pretty good for its time, but with such a cool and complex character, there's so much more that could be done. When it comes to complexity, you've got to give the nod to director Vincenzo Natali, and recently he spoke about possibly taking the reins behind a new film starring big green.

Swamp Thing Makes Akiva Goldsman's Heart Sing

RIP Dick Durock

Without a doubt the hardest part of our job reporting on the latest horror news is when one of our own is taken from us.

Wes Craven's 1982 film version was enjoyably campy and Jim Wynorski's 1989 sequel tested the limits of campy fun; neither are classics. If uber producer Joel Silver wants to remake Swamp Thing in 3D, I say go for it.
