Synopsis: Director Wes Craven, who went on to fame as the force behind
blockbuster horror films such as A Nightmare on Elm Street, departed from his
favorite genre to film this unique cult classic -- a spoof on the mad scientist
movies of the 1950s. Adrienne Barbeau stars as Alice Cable, a government agent
sent to replace a man who has disappeared while guarding a secret experimental
lab in the middle of the Louisiana bayous. Dressed in heels and a skirt, Cable
professes unease at her strange new surroundings, but she is soon wooed by Dr.
Alec Holland (Ray Wise). Holland is working on a concoction that combines plant
and animal cells. Arcane (Louis Jourdan) is the criminal mastermind who is
trying to steal the secret recipe for the potion. When Arcane and his
mercenaries break into the government camp, they kill Holland's sister Linda
(Nannette Brown) and the scientist is accidentally doused with his own formula
and bursts into flames, then dives into the swamp. Arcane's men pursue Cable,
but she is rescued by a mysterious green man. It takes several rescues for her
to understand that the Swamp Thing (Dick Durock) is Dr. Holland, transformed by
his own formula.
