“Swamp Thing! You make our hearts sing! You make everything…schlocky!”
So, Wes Craven, the “Master of Horror”, made a comic book movie. And that movie was Swamp Thing, a DC Comics adaptation, from 1982. Ant has fished this sci/fi-action-creature feature out of the swamps of his mind to present to Rich, Abi and Jamie to be suitably judged. So come an listen to us chat about the exploits of our solar-powered hero vegetation, who has seemingly been touched by the infamous Jesus Allegory, as he is pitted against sword-wielding pig-wolf monsters, a cumbersome rubber suit, every movie transition yet invented and Adrienne Barbeau’s indestructible perm (amongst her other body parts).
