When Darryl throws the bowling ball through the window, it leaves a large round hole but the rest of the window pane remains. About two seconds later, the boys scramble out the window which is suddenly completely free of glass--not even jagged edges around the frame. See more »
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 »
I've been reading swampthing comics for a while now and although this movie looks like a pile of puke in comparison to the legendary alan moore run, it a really fun way to kill 90 minutes. honestly, what this movie lacks in respectability, it more than makes up for in charm... you can tell they had a blast making this movie. the action scenes are simple but well executed (the fight with the leech man amongst all those exploding cars... awesome!) the cutesy comic relief parts with the to kids are hilarious (especially when they're scrambling around the living room trying to hide a mountain of porn) and the special effects are more than satisfactory...i don't know what all these other reviewers who think otherwise are talking about. its not a movie that you can just expect to dazzle you without any effort on your part. you have to want to like it. c'mon participate in life a little bit..you're invited.
