Description

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 (2011) is the underrated prequel to Carpenter's masterpiece. It's intense, often horrifying, well done in every way. The blu-ray transfer is as good as it gets. As for The Thing (1982), this is a great film in its category of horror/sci-fi, with terrific performances, frightening atmosphere, and special effects that set a standard for their time and a generation afterward. Extras on both discs go beyond expectations, especially for the 1982 film. This 2 disc set is a great value, well worth a place in any fan's collection. My copy from zavvi.com arrived before the announced date, a pleasant surprise!

I was very happy with this release, getting both movies in one pack was very handy and the price was fantastic, even shipped to Australia. Quality transfer of both films was very high, and and there was a good amount of special features to be enjoyed for both films, particularly the original. The only let down was the artwork, very disappointing to see a plain black cover. So much fantastic imagery from either of the films that could have been used, just going with a plain cover was a massive let down. I would have definitely given this one 5 stars with some decent cover art.

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...

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.

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 (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.

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

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.

To start you should watch the newer version of The Thing as it's a prequel to the original. It's an awesome film that's well written, with good plot and special effects. It's a great lead up to the second which starts right where the first left off. If you like sci-fi, horror, gore and special effects then these are the films for you. Buy them now and you won't regret it.

The Thing (1982) / The Thing (2011) is a great double movie set. The Kurt Russell film is a classic and a very good movie. The new prequel was still good and I enjoyed it.

Flawed but for the original

Total :

I was dreading watching the prequel film in this The Thing (1982) / The Thing (2011) box set, because so many things are right with the original. John Carpenter's incredible direction with Ennio Morricone's superb original soundtrack makes for an unforgettable film. In my opinion, the music does not set the atmosphere of the film in "The Thing" (2011). Gone is Morricone's minimal electronics, replaced by a cacophonous orchestra. The prequel's story was as I expected. After all, if you've seen the original you know the ending! It was okay, if not a little flawed in places. One thing I was surprised at was the heroine's ability to withstand minus fifty degree temperatures hatless and maskless. Not an icicle in sight! It could have been better. The original 1982 film's brilliance really highlights the flaws of the subsequent prequel.

Awesome original with Kurt Russell which has a great Blu-ray conversion and picture quality. The 'Prequel' is actually far better than I thought it'd be, with good FX and storyline. Ties in with the 1982 film really well. The Thing (1982) / The Thing (2011) is a brilliant box set for 'The Thing' addicts and general film fans alike. Excellent value too, enjoy!

I really loved the original film with Kurt Russell, possibly my favorite Horror movie. When I first saw the The Thing (1982) / The Thing (2011), I was expecting a low quality piece of rubbish, but not so! The follow up to the original is of a very good standard but I felt in some places the plot had a few minor holes. Overall good entertainment, worth the money spent!

Both movies in one box. Great. Every part is a masterpiece for himself. You have to watch the second movie first to hold the timeline. It is great to see more than 20 years of horror in 4 hours. 5 stars are not enough.
