Wes Craven’s ‘Swamp Thing’ coming to Blu-ray

It’s the announcement that Adrienne Barbeau cleavage-loving viewers have been waiting for for years: Swamp Thing is coming to Blu-ray. Wes Craven’s 1982 take on the unsung DC super hero will arrive this summer in HD courtesy the cult horror lovers over at Scream Factory. The film stars Ray Wise (Laura Palmer’s dad!), Adrienne Barbeau (Maude’s daughter!), Louis Jourdan, and Dick Durock as the half-man half, uhh, moss patch. Here’s the announcement from Scream’s Facebook page:

“Surprise! Wes Craven’s 1982 Cult Comic Book Classic SWAMP THING (starring horror fan favorite Adrienne Barbeau) will be arriving this summer on Blu-ray for the first time! As always, we are planning to provide as many bells and whistles as we can on this release, but we felt it was important to tell you early on that we will only be able to present the 91 minute U.S. cut of the film (the same version MGM has released on DVD since ’05) and not the 93 minute “unrated” international version as we had originally hoped for. This is due to legal issues that are out of our control and we hope you understand. Stay tuned for more specific details – including exact street date – that will be revealed in the next 2-3 months!”
