When I think about the career of Wes Craven, Swamp Thing never really even comes to mind. Just not my cup of tea (and I almost – gaps – prefer the sequel). But still, fans of the film should be excited that it will finally be getting a Scream Factory Blu-ray release! The film. starring Adrienne Barbeau, will be arriving this summer on Blu-ray for the first time.
It might not be your preferred cut though. “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. ”
Specs and release date will be revealed in the coming months.
