When Lana prepares to take a bath, she starts filling the tub then walks away wearing only a bathrobe. A moment later, she's in the hall at the elevator door, where she gives the jeep keys to an escaping Abby. Presumably, Lana then enters the elevator because Swamp Thing does not encounter her as he exits her suite (after entering through the bathtub pipes). So, the plot hole is there's no apparent reason for Lana to start filling the bathtub then immediately leave her suite in her robe with the jeep keys intending to go to another part of the mansion via the elevator.

The 1989 UK cinema version was cut by 2 minutes 34 secs by the BBFC in order to receive a 12 rating with edits to the fight scenes, a woman being assaulted and some of the opening torture shots in the laboratory. All the cuts were waived for the 15-rated video version and the 2004 12-rated Prism DVD. See more »
Much like its title hero, "The Return of Swamp Thing" is a hybrid creature: it tries to do many different genres - horror, comedy, action, romance - and, as it usually happens in these cases, does none of them completely satisfyingly. What keeps it watchable is its cast: Heather Locklear is a beautiful and engaging heroine (her spectacular cleavage doesn't hurt either), and nobody can play a suave, sophisticated, cultured villain quite like Louis Jourdan (it's ironic that his character in the film is trying to find a formula to reverse the aging process, because Jourdan himself seems to have already discovered that formula; he was 70 years old when this film was made but he looks about 50!). The witty and classy Sarah Douglas plays his assistant, and Dick Durock does a fine (physical as well as emotional) job as the Swamp Thing. And the final bonus: a GORGEOUS red-haired Monique Gabrielle as an armed security guard - YES!!! (**)
