RiffTrax Live: The Return of Swamp Thing

Please choose a format above.

Now you can own the RiffTrax Live event of 2022!

He’s back! You probably didn’t know that he was gone, but he was and now he’s back! Swamp Thing, AKA Swampington Montgomery Thing, returns to thwart the sinister plans of the evil Doctor Arcane, who apparently is also back. But! Here for the first time is Heather Locklear, the young woman who is drawn to the mysterious charms of Mr. Thing and desires a love that is both human and plant-based.

A sequel to the Wes Craven cult classic, The Return of Swamp Thing is decidedly NOT directed by Wes Craven, but that’s fine, because it means this one is bigger, more fun, and way more riffable. Plus, to kick things off, a puppet goes to the dentist in Danny's Dental Date, a short that's way scarier than anything you'd find in Dr. Arcane's lab.

Join Kevin, Bill, and Mike as they chase down a hoodoo in front of a live audience at the Belcourt Theatre in Nashville for RiffTrax Live: The Return of Swamp Thing!

Written by: Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy, Bill Corbett, Conor Lastowka, and Sean Thomason

Contributing writers: Jason Miller and Zach Shatzer
