The_Return_Of_Swamp_Thing-1989The Return of Swamp Thing is n American science fiction superhero comedy film based on the DC Comics (later Vertigo) title of the same name. Directed by Jim Wynorski, it was the second cinematic installment in the Swamp Thing media franchise and a sequel to 1982’s Swamp Thing, having a lighter tone than its science fiction horror predecessor. The film has a main title montage that consists of comic book covers set to Creedence Clearwater Revival’s “Born on the Bayou”, and features Dick Durock and Louis Jourdan reprising their roles as Swamp Thing and Arcane respectively, along with Sarah Douglas and Heather Locklear.


After her mother’s mysterious death, Abigail Arcane (Locklear) travels to the Florida swamps to confront her evil stepfather Dr. Arcane (Jourdan), who had been resurrected after his death in the first film. In an attempt to stave off the effects of aging, Dr. Arcane, assisted by Dr. Lana Zurrell (Douglas), combines genes from various swamp animals and human beings, creating an army of monsters known as Un-Men. Dr. Arcane tries to use his stepdaughter Abby in his genetic experiments until she is rescued by Swamp Thing (Durock), a scientist previously transformed into a bog creature after a confrontation with the evil doctor.
