Swamp Thing (1982)

I’m pretty sure we can all agree that Wes Craven’s 1982 Swamp Thing film adaptation is the best…um, film adaptation of Swamp Thing.

Not only did it have that awesome theatrical poster by Richard Hescox but it had a trailer too…that is very 80s.

My Father and I watched this at the 62 Drive-In back in my youth and I can say that I still enjoy it, sure it’s goofy but it is a fun movie to watch in the early morning. I guess you could say I just have a soft spot of moss in my heart for creatures like Swamp Thing and his Marvel Comics counterpart, the Man-Thing.

A big thanks as always to the IMP Awards for that awesome poster up top. Thanks as well to DIOTD2008 for the original theatrical trailer over on YouTube. That awesome What If? scenario with Swamp Thing and the Man-Thing throwing down comes to us by way of Gav Heryng on deviantART.
