Looks great.

The 4k transfer looks great. I watched this on a 4k TV with a 15 speaker set up. The original movie does not have a lot of surround sound effects. But this set comes with the 2011 prequal movie on Bluray, and this movie has nice surround effects. These special edition box sets are always nice, with bonus discs, a poster, a book, and art cards.

The Thing UHD

A great addition to the Studio Canal UHD releases of John Carpenter films - and it includes the 2011 prequel as well.

The Thing 4k

5

Excellent picture and sound. Nice addition of Ennio Moricone's score on CD too. It's a shame the extras have been ported over from previous Universal releases of this film, it would have been nice to have the Arrow edition extras too. The outer sleeve is a tad flimsy compared to Arrow, Studiocanal, Second Sight releases but on the whole this is a great addition if you don't already have it in your collection.

Awesome

5

This is one of my favourite films of all time. To have all these extras in one great package is a dream come true. The new transfers of the film are great but for me it’s the booklet, behind the scenes and the absolutely atmospheric soundtrack from morricone which are the real reasons why to get this. Great service as always from zavvi.

Carpenter Gold!

So unbelievably excited to receive this ultimate edition of the classic the Thing! It’s a thing of beauty and I watched it last night and the quality was something else! Spoiler alert - after all these years I still can’t decide if Macready is Macready!!

Great movie, box damaged

Hi, the movie quality itself was fantastic. There was however damage to the box but I think that’s more to do with the quality of the packaging , not any fault of zavvi

Beautifully presented

4

As the title suggests, this box set is beautifully realised and the 1982 film is excellent. A nice extra to receive a copy of the soundtrack on CD as well. The box is a little flimsy once the cellophane is unwrapped though. Also, I didn’t realise this box also comes with the 2011 prequel which, though a little bonus is nice, the film itself isn’t fantastic.

Excellent transfer, package not so much

4

For the price of this set, they should have used the rigid box, not the flimsy one. Even the current box would be fine if it was sized correctly, but the box is oversized and easily deformed. Too bad, because what really matters are discs and the movie, with the excellent transfer, a lot of extras, and even the CD with the soundtrack. And, they ruin it with the bad package.
