Film Review

We can pretty much always expect something good from Wes Craven, and "Swamp Thing" is no exception. When a lab in the middle of the swamp gets invaded by gangsters working for a criminal mastermind, one of the scientists gets turned into a half-man, half-plant being who goes around fighting the bad guys. I suspect that when the movie came out, what mostly caught people's attention was a certain scene with Adrienne Barbeau. But even beyond that, the movie is obviously an excuse to have fun. It's not really a horror flick as much as an action-comedy. Aside from the certain scene with Adrienne Barbeau, the other really neat scene is the mutation. A really cool movie.

From the mastermind behind such disturbing horror classics as "The Hills Have Eyes" and "Last House on the Left" comes a new dimension in terror… "Swamp Thing!" Yes, "Swamp Thing." For real.

How can a horror fan watch this and not be in some kind of heaven? Roger Ebert says this film is "one of those movies that fall somewhere between buried treasures and guilty pleasures." He further says it is "an off-the-wall, eccentric, peculiar movie fueled by the demented obsessions of its makers." He means this in the nicest way possible, and I love him for that.Author John Kenneth Muir notes that Swamp Thing differs in many respects from Craven's usual work, in that Craven's intent was to show the major Hollywood studios that he could handle action, stunts and major stars. Craven substituted his usual focus on the problems of the family and society for pure entertainment. And you know what? He did it flawle…
