Before superhero movies liked Thor and The Avengers smashed box offices, Wes Craven brought DC’s Swamp Thing to life on the big screen. 88 Films is celebrating the Craven’s vision by releasing a special edition of Swamp Thing ahead of DC’s new “Swamp Thing” series premiere.
“Following the success of The Hills Have Eyes, Swamp Thing shows Craven adapting his style from less rough ‘n’ ready thrills and spills – and the result is an adventure thriller featuring a mutant-monster with good intentions, and a supporting cast of fan-favourites including Adrienne Barbeau (The Fog, Escape from New York), Ray Wise (Twin Peaks, RoboCop) and David Hess (The Last House On The Left) in one of his best-remembered villainous turns.”
Released in 1982, Swamp Thing remains one of Craven’s most mesmerizing achievements – with a faithful DC-comic look and action-packed special effects. 88 Films is delighted to present Swamp Thing in a very special edition Blu-ray to be released on March 25, 2019, that packs a pristine punch and highlights this creature feature classic in all of its bayou-tinged brilliance!
