Trash auteur Jim Wynorski (CHOPPING MALL, LOST EMPIRE) followed Wes Craven's adaptation of the classic SWAMP THING comic book with this slam-bang action/horror/comedy, featuring more waggle-headed rubber monsters, more gun-toting female terrorists, and one miraculously hilarious roly-poly 9-year-old. Where the first film explored the inner torments of a man torn from everything he holds dear, RETURN OF SWAMP THING focuses on mid-air speedboat collisions, mutated maniacs and two little kids in a trailer park looking at a box of naked lady magazines! Formerly respectable actor Louis Jourdan is back as Dr. Arcane and the unfortunately-named Dick Durock reprises his role as the shrubbish superhero, this time unexpectedly joined by the equally vegetative Heather Locklear. If you have a thermometer-bursting case of Wynorski Fever, this oughtta cure it. (Zack Carlson)
