America's Favorite Super Hero is Back in Action!
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.

"Campy fun.  Jon Niccum, Lawrence Journal-World
"...a comically engaging romp...one of the cheesiest, tongue-in-cheek, superhero action comedies of the 1980s.  Michael Stailey, DVD Verdict

Editor's Note
Beautiful horticulturalist Abigail visits her stepfather determined to solve the mystery death of her mother. He wants her dead for the creation of his immortality serum. But Swamp Thing comes to her rescue and the two become an unlikely pair of lovers, hunted by the insane Dr. Arcane.

Professional Reviews

Variety 5 of 10
The Return of Swamp Thing is scientific hokum without the fun. Second attempt to film the DC Comics character will disappoint all but the youngest critters...They may be entertained by watching crossbred creatures squirm helplessly or buy into the Swamp Thing's (Dick Durock) instant love for Heather Locklear. He's a plant; she's a vegetarian...Pic is set against a backdrop of evil where Dr Arcane (Louis Jourdan) has turned the disco-looking basement of his ante-bellum mansion into a mutant lab inhabited by failed experiments as he tries to discover the genetic equivalent of the Fountain of Youth...The Swamp Thing escaped, but most of his more unfortunate distant cousins of the Petri dish have not, like the cockroach/man stuck on his back flailing his legs while Drs Lana Zurrell and Rochelle (Sarah Douglas and Ace Mask, respectively) lament another misfire...Locklear arrives at the scene to confront Jourdan, her evil stepfather, who has never quite adequately explained her mother's mysterious death...It doesn't take a genius to figure out Mom's fate, though it takes the dense Locklear character an hour and a half.
