This page is devoted to Swamp Thing, star of stage, tv & movies (well maybe not stage). Do not bring your evil here.
There were 2 movies
Swamp Thing (1981)
The Return of Swamp Thing (1989)
Louis Jourdan played the bad guy in both, as well as the MonsterVision 100% Weird movie "Julie"
Wes Craven directed the first one, in which a biologist's lab in the swamp is destroyed and he's assumed dead. But no, the stuff he was working on has mutated him into a human-like creature with white blood. When the bad guy goes after
Adrienne Barbeau of The Fog, the big green guy comes to the rescue. Leonard Maltin says Jourdan's "almost on a level with
Vincent Price's standard routine."
In the second movie, almost a decade later, Swamp Thing's human stepdaughter (Heather Locklear) comes looking for him and gets nabbed by Jourdan's thugs. There's a pointless subplot by two little kids but overall a good movie.
The Return of Swamp Thing is available on DVD, but not episodes of the syndicated tv series that followed though novelizations of the episodes are available as books.
And who can forget the great 1946 movie, Strangler Of The Swamp? "An innocent man, executed for a murder he didn't commit, returns from the dead seeking vengeance. One by one, he kills the townsfolk who sentenced him to death." It was made with
Rosemary La Planche, who of course was also the star of
Devil Bat's Daughter, sequel to a 1940 Bela Lugosi movie.
