Today DC Universe released their official trailer for Swamp Thing and it’s horrific! We get to see just what this small Louisiana town is dealing with and how one scientist and the creature from the lagoon may be able to help save everyone. 

The trailer starts with a young girl in class who’s hearing suddenly starts to fuzz. Blood drips from her nose and she coughs before she faints on the floor. Soon the entire town of Houma, Louisiana is panicking due to this deadly swamp-borne virus that’s sweeping through its citizens. CDC officer Abby Arcane is assigned to the case, mixing her with nostalgia since it’s happening in her hometown. The mystery of the virus soon deepens when they find a body consumed with vines in a very grotesque scene. At the same time, Alec Holland is also doing investigating of his own, linking some sort of drug to the virus going around. Unfortunately he’s killed in the swamp before he can get any answers. …or is he?

The trailer is filled to the brim with gore and jump scares, exciting to any horror fan. It is produced by James Wan afterall, so it makes sense that horror is front and center. Plus Swamp Thing himself is a monster, though one who protects the environment. Given this trailer though, I don’t think the message of environmentalism will make it in. We’ll just have to wait and see what the show does and how it unveils all of these secrets.
