Swamp Thing Movie Coming to Blu-ray
May 31, 2013

Cult classic rescuer Shout! Factory will be bringing the 1982 Swamp Thing movie, based on the comic book and memorably starring Adrienne Barbeau, to Blu-ray combo pack on August 6.

In the movie, Dr. Alec Holland (Ray Wise) is turned into the monstrous Swamp Thing as a result of Arcane (Louis Jourdan)’s attempt to steal his secret formula to end world hunger. (Or so I’m told. I haven’t actually seen the movie. Just the poster, which is also the cover for this release.)

According to High-Def Digest, the special features will include:

  • New audio commentary with writer/director Wes Craven
  • New interviews with actress Adrienne Barbeau, makeup effects artist Bill Munn, co-creator Len Wein, and actor Reggie Batts
  • Theatrical trailer
  • Photo galleries

Unfortunately, the Blu-ray will only have the 91-minute U.S. theatrical cut of the film; the 93-minute unrated cut is unavailable “due to legal issues”.
