Last week I came across this set of Swamp Thing movie promo stills. The glossy 8x10s are in wonderful shape. I already had a couple of these but couldn’t pass on this set of 10 that were very reasonably priced. I believe The this series of stills were a set of, at least, 13 but I could be wrong. A number of promo stills were produced for the movie. Some are similar images that include varying amounts of information/descriptions. Some of them have hand-written production codes on them. A list of the stills in my collection can be found on the Collectibles page.

“…Swamp Thing. The contemporary, action-packed story of beauty and the beast, based upon characters appearing in magazines published by DC Comics, is written and directed by Wes Craven. Produced by Benjamin Melniker and Michael E. Uslan, the film is an Embassy Pictures release.”

“Dr. Alec Holland (Ray Wise) and his sister Linda (Nannette Brown) are apprehended in their lab by henchman (David Hess, left, and Nicholas Worth) sent to steal the scientist’s secret formula in Swamp Thing.”

I’m not quite sure why the description doesn’t mention the creepy, cross carrying, bayou baby?
