Killer sharks and human jellyfish and living mummies, oh my! Arrow Video is proud to present the first ever collection of works by William "Wild Bill" Grefé, the maverick filmmaker who braved the deep, dark depths of the Florida everglades to deliver some of the most outrageous exploitation fare ever to go-go dance its way across drive-in screens. Bringing together seven of Grefé's most outlandish features, all new to Blu-ray, He Came from the Swamp: The William Grefé Collection packs in a macabre menagerie of demented jellyfish men (Sting of Death), zombified witch doctors (Death Curse of Tartu), homicidal hippies (The Hooked Generation) and seductive matrons (The Naked Zoo) - not to mention the ubiquitous go-go dancing college kids - to create one of the most wildly entertaining box-sets of all time!

Press Quotes


     —Hollywood Sun

This is another set much like Arrow's tribute to Herschell Gordon Lewis where the films are not exactly undiscovered classics, but where their historical interest as well as some really enjoyable supplements make He Came From the Swamp Recommended.


Packed with dope fiends, killer crocs, and a whole lot of watusiing, HE CAME FROM THE SWAMP should scratch any grindhouse fan's itch for something wild, weird, and wonderful.


Covering everything from sharksploitation to hicksploitation to drugsploitation to horror, and everything in between, He Came from the Swamp offers an array of low budget films of varying qualities with enjoyable presentations and slew of great extras. For fans of William Grefe and his work, this is an essential purchase. For everyone else, if you're familiar with and love recent Blu-ray boxset collections dedicated to the likes of Herschell Gordon Lewis, Al Adamson, and Andy Milligan, this is right up your alley.
