Heh. Heh. Another day, another list. Glad to see you! Come in! Come into the crypt of terror! This is your host, Brad “Ghoulish” Gullickson, spooking! We’ve chosen a real meaty list of terror from some of my favorite, horrific comic book adaptations. I’m sure these titles will make your blood freeze in your veins and the hair on the back of your neck crawl!
We FSR creeps are not your usual breed of movie maniac. We’ve assembled a collection of films, and in an order, you might find puzzling or dreadful. Good! We are here to stir a little ghastly shock into your system. You look a little piqued, and some fiery debate might jump-start that gorgeous heart of yours.
10. Return of the Swamp Thing (1989)
I enjoy Wes Craven’s 1982 original and recall it being a staple of my younger years thanks to HBO, but at the risk of being labeled a heathen and an asshole, I’d argue that Jim Wynorski‘s belated follow-up is the one to beat. I’m serious! The creature work is creative and plentiful, the action is fun, Heather Locklear has never been better (sorry TJ Hooker fans), and the damn thing is just hilarious. It’s a ridiculously funny comedy that also happens to feature bipedal hybrids and French screen legend Louis Jourdanfighting in a swamp, and while its comic origins are the focus its witty and fast-moving script is the main ingredient.
