Dr. Anton Arcane:
God will pardon me. That's His job.
When Arcane re-captures Abby and returns her to his mansion, it seems like dozens of guards in front of the house are frantically running past them in both directions, presumably to defend the mansion from Swamp Thing. In one long shot, you can see an extra dressed as a guard running right-to-left, then stopping, turning, and running left-to-right. This reveals that the multitude of hustling guards were actually a far smaller number doing circuits in and out of the camera frame.
Cockroach Bob is credited as Himself.
The 1989 UK cinema version was cut by 2 minutes 34 secs by the BBFC in order to receive a 12 rating with edits to the fight scenes, a woman being assaulted and some of the opening torture shots in the laboratory. All the cuts were waived for the 15-rated video version and the 2004 12-rated Prism DVD.
