A cheesy, campy comic book/horror schlock-fest. Swamp Thing is everything it should be.

There's a charm to its aggressive campiness and rubber suits but this is strictly for a crowd where that alone can make the movie tolerable.

Wow this is bad. Even for 1986.

It looks a bit naive and simplistic these days, but still has it charms and nice swampy settings.

Legendary horror director Wes Craven is well known for creating films like The Hills Have Eyes, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Scream etc. In 1982 Wes Craven wrote and directed the live action movie adaptation to DC comics hero Swamp Thing, the film is a low budget B-movie that surely is great fun to watch. One funny thing is that Swamp Thing is supposed to have comical elements to it but the film takes it self too seriously and the comedy elements seem so small compared to it's sequel Return of the Swamp Thing. The Swamp Thing costume is pretty cool and looks effective, the acting is fine. Swamp Thing is a fun comic book adaptation that's should be seen. Check this out. 1

An average movie, and one often forgotten in the DC filmography. Directed by Wes Craven, and written by the one of the writers of the comic. Seeing ho this is one of the most beloved comics of all times, I didn't think there would be any chance of making a pleasing film. However, while it's story and characters may be bland, and I like everyone else is tired of Damsels In Distress, the film even says so itself and one point. To make up for all this the makeup is wonderful, and the character of the swamp thing is easy to get invested in. Combine that with choreography and editing suited to action far more than superman, a descent popcorn flick. A good introduction to the cult superhero movie.

Wes Craven's 'Swamp Thing' is an entertaining piece of sci-fi cheese that is perfectly content with being just that. It's a knowingly campy creature feature that embraces the cliches that are so often present in the genre. And the cast and crew's dedication makes it that much more fun.

Excellent movie and busty Adrienne Barbeau makes it all that much more better ;)

Overly corny for such an interesting character, but it's a pretty fun send up of the 50s drive-in b-movies. Adrienne Barbeaus character is great in it too.

It may be a faithful movie (especially for its time and budget) but barely anything ever happens in it. No laughs, no thrills, and a way to simple plot to be even the least bit intriguing.

Stereotypical 80s horror/drama boobs, bad effects, below average box office.

”Wes Craven, maestro!

Alan Moore's take on this fantastic character is one of my favorite series in comics. Unfortunately, Craven's rendition is muddied with bad 80s acting, laughable romance, and corny melancholy. Even with some great makeup and practical effects, it can't ascend to the best of the monster / body-horror genre.

Wow, that was laughably cheesy. I can't recommend this one, sorry Mr. Craven. And poor Bruno.

É triste que o gajo tenha de morrer para eu me aperceber de que isto existe. Por outro lado, o problema de decidir o que visualizar fica resolvido.

A good attempt from Wes Craven and a decent comic book adaption.
