Swamp Thing ★★½ 1982 (PG)

Overlooked camp drama about scientist accidentally turned into tragic half-vegetable, half-man swamp creature, with government agent Barbeau caught in the middle, occasionally while topless. A vegetarian nightmare or ecology propaganda? You be the judge. Adapted from the comic book by Craven. 91m/C VHS, DVD . Adrienne Barbeau, Louis Jourdan, Ray Wise, Dick Durock; D: Wes Craven; W: Wes Craven; C: Robbie Greenberg; M: Harry Manfredini.
