    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.

Love it

Love both films and can't beat the price!

Great Double Value!

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!

Great release, shame about the artwork.

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.

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

Really good price for 2 top sci-fi films, a must for any collector.

thing

Great value.

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.
