366 Days at the Drive-In: Day 162

The Date: March 10

The Movie: Swamp Thing (1982)

What Is It?: Wes Craven’s goofy adaptation of a comic book about a monstrous professor haunting the swamps of Louisiana was an afternoon HBO staple when I was a kid. Yes, it’s dumb. Yes, Adrienne Barbeau’s potentially interesting character is sacrificed to the creature’s need for a damsel to constantly rescue. Still, it isn’t boring and the creature has a definite Frankenstein-Monster charm.

Why Today?: On this day in 1804, the two-day ceremony in honor of  the U.S.s purchase of Louisiana from France begins.
