Swamp Thing (1982)

Starring: Louis Jourdan, Adrienne Barbeau, Ray Wise, Dick Durock

Genre: Horror
Release Year: 1982
VHS Release Year: 1986
Distributor: Embassy Home Entertainment
Box Type: Slipcase
Catalog #: 1605
Previews/Trailers: N/A

  • 1986 cardboard slipcase reissued by Embassy Home Entertainment.
  • The "Gold" Embassy Home Entertainment Ident precedes the feature. The FBI warning appears after the end credits.
  • Like all North American VHS releases, this is the U.S. theatrical version without the extra footage of Adrienne Barbeau's nude bathing scene.
  • Contains no previews/trailers.
  • Other versions of Swamp thing on VHS are the original 1982 Embassy clamshell (With the white Embassy ident preceding the feature), and the 2000 MGM Movietime reissue from MGM Home Entertainment. I do not own the 2000 MGM Movietime release but I'm assuming MGM used the extended International cut that they used for the DVD release that features the longer Adrienne Barbeau nude bathing scene.
