Default 'Swamp Thing' - High-Def Digest Review

E has reviewed Wes craven's 'Swamp Thing.' This Shout Factory release presents the film on Blu-ray looking and sounding as good as the original elements might ever allow. This is worth a look for the curious and recommended for fans.

Nice review. The special features sound like way more than I'd have expected a movie like this to receive. It's a shame that they left out the nudity, which remains one of my favorite parts of the film. I guess the best thing would be a fan edit of the Blu-Ray version with the missing footage... Probably a lot of work to put that together though.

Fortunately I bought the original DVD release that included the nude scene before the re- call. I'll have to dig that out for another viewing.

You know a movie is bad when all people talk about is the removed nudity scene.

It's a fun b-movie, but Adrienne Barbeau is the best thing about it. No Barbeau-boobs, no sale for me.

Since the industry is constantly remaking films I wonder if Craven, known as a great director, has considered doing a remake the way it was intended and with modern tools available.
Would be a fantastic question if HDD ever gets the opportunity to interview him.
I originally caught this flick on HBO - loved it, will likely buy it.

Which lady is that? I hope it is not that lady with the curly dark hair because she is ugly.

Hopefully Swamp Thing will be appearing in that Guillermo del Toro DC Comics movie, assuming the movie actually happens.

Dr. Kain.... *shakes head as usual*
