Science made him a monster. Love changed him even more! Swamp Thing is the perfect blend of thrills and chills from master of horror Wes Craven (A Nightmare on Elm Street, The Last House on the Left, The Hills Have Eyes). On August 6, 2013 this much-loved horror classic will make its Blu-ray debut from Scream Factory. The Blu-ray + DVD combo pack features high-definition anamorphic widescreen presentations and exciting bonus content including all-new interviews with Adrienne Barbeau, co-creator Len Wein and actor Reggie Batts; as well as commentary tracks with writer/director Wes Craven and Makeup Effects artist Bill Munn.

Deep in the Florida everglades, a brilliant scientist, Dr. Alec Holland (Ray Wise), and a sexy government agent, Alice Cable (Adrienne Barbeau, The Fog), have developed a secret formula that could end world hunger. Little do they know, however, that their arch nemesis, Arcane (Louis Jourdan, Octopussy), is plotting to steal the serum for his own selfish schemes. Looting the lab and kidnapping Cable, Arcane douses Holland with the chemicals and leaves him for dead. Mutated by his own formula, Holland becomes “Swamp Thing” – a half-human/half-plant superhero who will stop at nothing to rescue Cable and defeat Arcane…even if it costs him his life!
