The Thing (1982)

Horror-meister John Carpenter (Halloween, Escape From New York) teams Kurt Russell's outstanding performance with incredible visuals to build this chilling version of the classic The Thing.

In the winter of 1982, a twelve-man research team at a remote Antarctic research station discovers an alien buried in the snow for over 100,000 years. Soon unfrozen, the form-changing alien wreaks havoc, creates terror and becomes one of them.

The Thing (2011)

Paleontologist Kate Lloyd (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) joins a Norwegian scientific team in Antarctica that has discovered an extraterrestrial ship buried in the ice, and an organism that seems to have died in the crash. When an experiment frees the alien, a shape-shifting creature with the ability to turn itself into a perfect replica of any living being, Kate must join the crew's pilot, Carter (Joel Edgerton), to keep it from killing them off one at a time. Paranoia soon spreads like an epidemic as they're infected, one by one, and a thrilling race for survival begins...

The Thing is a prelude to John Carpenter's classic 1982 film.

The Thing Box Set

Great box set. Great Price. Great movies. Worst packaging ever, guys. Please, please, PLEASE go back to cardboard box packaging instead of cheap bubble wrap envelopes. I'll pay more. Honest. And if you do, the corners of my box sets will thank you forever...

The Thing boxset

I have loved the older of these movies for years and it was even better on Blu-ray. The prequel is also really well done - which came as a surprise. Particular attention has been paid to the foundation and continuation of the story.

Fantastic combination

Great titles that I'd seen before, even better in the same box set. The original is still better (In my opinion) with the music by ennio morricone, but the new one is also brilliant.

The Thing double box set

The Thing (1982) / The Thing (2011) box set has both the original, brilliant 1982 version of The Thing, plus the passable 2011 prequel. It's great value.

Suprisingly Good

I love John Carpenter's The Thing (1982) / The Thing (2011) and watch them at least once a year. They're a masterpiece in my opinion. I dreaded the announcement that they were going to remake The Thing, and wanted to hate it from the beginning, but this film won me over. It's pretty good, and I don't know what they could have done to improve it. I've watched it several times and this film is surprisingly good, with fantastic special effects, good action, good pacing. The cast is okay, but not a patch on the original cast. I like it, but lacks paranoia.

The Thing (1982) / The Thing (2011)

The Thing (1982) / The Thing (2011) are both great movies! The Thing (2011) is more of a prequel as a remake which makes it even better!

The Thing (1982) / The Thing (2011)

Excellent value blu-ray movies. Top films as well! The remake doesn't quite live up to the original in my personal opinion, but nevertheless it is well worth watching as it is a good film in it's own right.

This is an amazing box set of The Thing (1982) / The Thing (2011) on Blu-ray. The original was amazing, and the new one is amazing if not better than the original. It's a must buy and for the price you can't go wrong for two great Blu-rays.
