Scream Factory has revealed the final list of extras that’ll accompany their upcoming Blu-ray/DVD combo release of Wes Craven’s SWAMP THING! Based on the DC Comics comic book of the same name, Craven’s film stars the lovely Adrienne Barbeau (CREEPSHOW, ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK, and THE FOG) and stuntman Dick Durock (he also reprised the role for Jim Wynorski’s sequel RETURN OF SWAMP THING and the TV series) as the titular scientist-turned-creature. SWAMP THING streets August 6th!

Not bad for a release that isn’t labelled a Collector’s Edition! Fans are crying afoul that Scream’s release isn’t the nudity/gore laden International Cut that was recalled by MGM years ago, but the Scream team’s hands are tied since MGM would only authorize the US Cut to be released. They tried, and that’s good enough for me. If you’re dying to see Barbeau’s bosoms or stripping gypsies, I’m sure you could track down the footage one way or another.
