When comparing scars with Gunn, Poinsettia shows him a bite mark near her right shoulder that she says she got at a Mötley Crüe concert (an in-joke because at the time co-star Heather Locklear was married to Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee). See more »

The 1989 UK video 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 version and the 2004 12 rated Prism DVD. See more »
Return of Swamp Thing (1989) is the long awaited sequel to the Wes Craven cult classic Swamp Thing. This movie was based upon the D.C. Comics classic character from their more "mature" theme line. This film has achieved a level of cult status itself amongst fans of the genre. This time around the movie is more cheesy and campy instead of being too serious. The cast seems to have a lot of fun in this flick. Heather Lockyear stars as the hot blonde who is rescued and falls for Swamp Thing and Louis Jordan returns as it's chief rival and nemesis. The legendary Jim Wynorski ( a non-R rated outing for the sleaze king this time around) who has become a huge B-movie film maker in his own right helms the picture.
A light hearted film that'll warm you over. Recommended for fans of the comic book and cheesy films.
