***EXCLUSIVE ANNOUNCEMENT! "SWAMP THING" RISES AT SCREAM FACTORY!***
Surprise! Wes Craven's 1982 Cult Comic Book Classic SWAMP THING (starring horror fan favorite Adrienne Barbeau) will be arriving this summer on Blu-ray for the first time!
As always, we are planning to provide as many bells and whistles as we can on this release, but we felt it was important to tell you early on that we will only be able to present the 91 minute U.S. cut of the film (the same version MGM has released on DVD since '05) and not the 93 minute "unrated" international version as we had originally hoped for. This is due to legal issues that are out of our control and we hope you understand.
Stay tuned for more specific details – including exact street date - that will be revealed in the next 2-3 months!
Depends Iggy. Do you like Troma? I like to compare this movie to Poultreygeist. Nice practical effects, gross out gore, seriously cheesy laugh out loud one liners, and in-your-face social commentary. This one has an awesome electro score, too. Troma picked it up for a reason, and I don't just promote this movie, because they are from my area. I genuinely love it. Just don't expect Christopher Nolan direction, and cinematography, and you should be fine. Smoke a j and laugh your ass off for an hour.
