Journey into wild world of director William Grefé with a collection from the darkest depths of the Florida everglades!

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 films, plus a feature length documentary on the filmmaker's career, 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 - to create one of the most wildly entertaining box-sets of all time!
