Editorial Reviews

Everyone's favorite muck-encrusted plant-man is back in this tongue-in-cheek action-adventure, based on the award-winning DC comic series. Determined to solve the mysterious death of her mother, beautiful horticulturist Abigail Arcane ("Spin City's" Heather Locklear) visits her stepfather, Dr. Anton Arcane (Louis Jourdan), in his high-tech laboratory. Unfortunately Arcane is bent on taking her life for the creation of his immortality serum. Coming to her rescue is the former Dr. Alex Holland, now Swamp Thing, who sweeps her away to the heart of the bayou where they soon fall head over heels in love. But their romance goes awry when Arcane ruthlessly hunts down these unlikely lovers with a fiendish array of weaponry! Chock full of witty dialogue, dazzling stunt work and striking special effects, this outrageous action-comedy monster mash also features cult favorites Sarah Douglas (Superman II) and scream queen Monique Gabrielle.

Customer Reviews

For once a 2nd movie that was better than the first!
rhonda Hart
They don't get any cookier than this, but this is so bad, but Heather just makes you forget about that and her little "one liners " are pretty funny too.

Guns, mutants, evil scientists, strange love, Heather Locklear in her prime and a giant muckman kicking asses and taking names?

This is B-Movie greatness! Adventure, rubber suits, funny one-liners, it's all here. This is a review of the OOP Image release.

"The Return of Swamp Thing" is 10 times more entertaining than the first and here's a list of 10 reasons why:

10) Heather Locklear: Gentleman prefer blondes, nuff said.

9) The fight scenes are many, but varied which is cool.

8) The kids put in a great comedic performance.

7) Character development: each character truly has their own voice and a specific scene to remember them by, kudos to the screenwriters.

6) "Gun": The psychotic head of security has the best lines in the movie like "Turn him into guacamole" and "I got you now Mr. Potato-Head!"

5) The creatures: The evil monsters are classic sci-fi models that add the campy flare with a touch of realism.

4) The bath tub scene: After being blown up, Swamp Thing sneeks into Arcane's base via the plumbing. At least they showed one of Swamp Thing's powers, besides being able to punch people.

3) The war wounds scene: Security guards Gun and Poinsettia compare their various scars and tell where/when they got them. Very memorable.

2) Dr. Arcane: Every good movie needs a villain and Louis Jourdan puts in a great performance as he performs all his evil deeds with psychotic calmness and humor.

1) The Swamp Thing costume doesn't look like a melted plastic Green Army Man toy. That's right, there's actually some resemblance to the comic!

Overall this is a fun movie with plenty of action and comedy. It used to be shown in it's entirety on TV so it's fun for everyone.

I don't know why,but I enjoy this movie much more than I enjoy Wes Craven's version (pt.1).Maybe because of the effects and the make-up which are cool for a low-budget movie,the characters -which are more interesting and more likeable and the black humor (take the case of the asthmatic monster(!) that fights with our hero).Besides, this movie features Heather Locklear and Sarah Douglas ,good monster fights and a beautiful swamp.To top it off ,I watched part 2 much before I watched part 1.This part 2 has a great beginning,which shows parts of the Swamp Thing's best comic books accompanied by the song "Born on the Bayou",which is a masterpiece.The story : A mad scientist (who has a deadly degenerative disease) does experiments on animals and people to find a cure for his health problem which can also give him immortality and special powers.Only the Swamp thing may offer the mad genius what he is looking for.

Format: DVD
I've read alot of negative reviews for this one, and none of the people writing these reviews really seem to grasp the concept of a Jim Wynorski film. Jim Wynorski makes b-movies, ONLY b-movies, and he makes them well. If you're unfamiliar with what a b-movie is, you should'n't be writing a review for this particular film, but I'll give you some background. Remember those old fifties drive-in films, you know, the kind they play on Mystery Science Theater 3000? Stereo-typical characters, guys in rubber suits playing cheesy monsters, and that special 80's touch up, huge breasts every couple of minutes...these are all elements of the b-movie. You're SUPPOSED to make fun of it. You're SUPPOSED to actually enjoy yourself watching a movie for once.
Return of Swamp Thing is an excellent b-movie, and one of Jim Wynorski's best. It's alot different from the original, but alot better, in my opinion. No disrespect to Wes Craven, but Swamp Thing isn't one of his better films. Not as bad as Scream 2, but it's not quite up to par with his usual films.
If you DID enjoy Return of Swamp Thing, I recommend "Not of This Earth" (1986), "Sorority House Massacre II: Nightie Nightmare", and "Hard To Die".

Swamp Thing rules... even though this is a campy movie The Return of Swamp Thing is fun. If you like superhero, monster movies and camp rolled into one then this is the movie for you. The best part of this movie is the opening credits with that rock and roll song. This is one of the better Superhero movies... 10times better than THE Captain America, Fantastic Four and The Punisher movies that were never release. Right up there with Batman Returns and Superman 4.

Yes, it is goofy. Yes it is made by the same guy who made the pseudo-Conan THE SWORD AND THE SORCERER. Still, it's entertaining. Actually, I think it is actually better than the original (how did Wes Craven get hooked into that one?). True, you do have the two obnxious kids and Swamp Thing whacking away on creatures with big rubbery heads. Louis Jourdan returns as Arcane (didn't he literally loose his head in the first one), Sarah Douglas as an evil assistant and Heather Locklear as the eye-candy love interest for Swampy (this time completely played by Dick Durock)and it opens with credits from the comic covers to CCR's "Born on the Bayou".

That was the tagline to this 1989 film and though I do not know the answer to that question I will say that this sequel definitely had it's own campy style and was not afraid to flaunt it. The next year the USA Network followed up this sequel by producing 72 episodes (1990-93) that returned to a darker depiction more inline with Wes Craven's first movie. The actor Dick Durock, who passed away in 2009, portrayed the Swamp Thing throughout. He was a perfect fit for this earth elementals make-up and will be missed.
