Swamp Thing | Chicago Reader

Swamp Thing

Wes Craven directed this dismal 1982 horror spoof based on a DC comic about a scientist (Ray Wise) who transforms himself into a rampaging plant. The film is too lazy to provide any actual jokes with its send-up of the genre—it just exudes a hip, condescending attitude while the actors (Louis Jourdan, Adrienne Barbeau) ham it up. Craven seems to have set out to make a bad movie, and he's succeeded. 91 min.
