Synopsis >

Everyone's favorite muck-encrusted plant-man is back in The Return of Swamp Thing, the tounge-in-cheek action-adventure starring Louis Jourdan and Heather Locklear. Sequal to the original cvult classic Swamp Thing and based on the award winning DC Comics series, this visually dynamic film plants our moss-infested superhero in a dangerous love affair. When beautiful horticulturist Abigail Arcane visits her stepfather, Dr Anton Arcane, in his high-tech laboratory, she is determined to resolve the mysterious death of her mother. Unfortunately, Arcane is bent on taking her life for the creation of his immortality serum. Coming to Abigail's rescue is the former Dr Alex Holland (now Swamp Thing) who sweeps her away to the heart of the bayou where they soon fall head over heels in love. But their romance goes awry when Arcane ruthlessy hunts down these unlikely lovers with a fiendish array of weaponry. Will the insane Arcane ever turn over a new leaf? What really happened to Abigail's mother? And can a vegetarian and a houseplant ever find true happiness without driving each other up a tree? Chock-full of witty, campy dialogue, The Return of Swamp Thing features dazzling stunt work and striking special effects make-up.
