Wes Craven’s cult classic SWAMP THING is getting a Blu-ray release courtesy of the Shout! Factory.
Shout! Factory will only be releasing the 91-minute U.S. cut, which is the same version that is available now on DVD. There is an international 93-minute cut, but evidently Shout! was not able to obtain the rights to it.
Deep in Florida’s darkest everglades, a brilliant scientist, Dr. Alec Holland (Ray Wise), and a sexy government agent, Alice Cable (Adrienne Barneau), have developed a secret formula that could end world hunger and change civilisation forever. Little do they know, however, that their arch nemesis, Arcane (Louis Jourdan), is plotting to steal the serum for his own selfish schemes. Looting the lab and kidnaping Cable, Arcane douses Holland with the chemicals and leaves him for dead in the swamp. Mutated by his own formula, Holland becomes “Swamp Thing”-a half plant superhero who will stop at nothing to rescue the beautiful Cable and defeat the evil Arcane…even if it costs him his life!
