Louis Jourdan played the bad guy in both. 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, 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.
Swamp Thing videos available include both movies, but not episodes of the syndicated tv series that followed.
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.
