Deep in the Florida everglades, a brilliant scientist, Dr. Alec Holland (Ray Wise), and a sexy government agent, Alice Cable (Adrienne Barbeau, The Fog), have developed a secret formula that could end world hunger. Little do they know, however, that their arch nemesis, Arcane (Louis Jourdan, Octopussy), is plotting to steal the serum for his own selfish schemes. Looting the lab and kidnapping Cable, Arcane douses Holland with the chemicals and leaves him for dead. Mutated by his own formula, Holland becomes Swamp Thing - a half-human/half-plant superhero who will stop at nothing to rescue Cable and defeat Arcane...even if it costs him his life!

anyway, i love this movie for its' efforts. adrienne barbeau is awesome as alice cable (changed from matt in the comic), investing energy and smarts into her character. craven tries his best to give alec holland passion and substance, and ray wise plays him nicely. their love affair, as fast and brief as it is, is somewhat believable. dick durock manages to convey swampy's tragic vibe, and reggie batts is a lot of fun as jude, a local kid who helps out our heroes. last house on the left fans will be pleased to see david hess, although he is a bit more palatable--and humorous--here as ferret, than as krug.
the movie was obviously given no budget, and it shows in the monster suits. they try, they try. there is a scene where swampy grows back a severed arm, and this is done in pretty cool fashion. harry manfredini is on hand to contribute his sharp strings, and i won't lie: i expected to see jason a few times. what we get is a sincere movie that has some excellent scenes and some people trying their best to bring some love to the material. fortunately, since swamp thing takes place in a swamp, the charleston locations are beautiful. as far as its' relationship to the comic, parts are well-translated, other parts loosely so, other parts are craven's. i think the essence of the character, if not the perpetual execution, was faithful and intact. it's interesting, knowing the kind of director craven is, i can see him just shaking his head at certain scenes and other times thinking to himself "we got it!" swamp thing is an uneven labor of love that, even when it falls short, rises to...something, something romantic and tragic and fantastic.
the shout factory blu is gorgeous. the image is crisp and clear, and what i remember as being visually muddy, was bright and clear and gorgeous. featurettes on adrienne barbeau and reggie batts (a serious film geek) are awesome and informative.
Anyway, Swamp Thing is a cool superhero and this cartoon is cool! And has a great theme song lifted from The Troggs' "Wild Thing"! :-)
