THE ULTIMATE IN ALIEN TERROR
Over the years, star Kurt Russell and master of horror John Carpenter have teamed up on a multitude of films (Big Trouble in Little China and Escape from New York to name a few) but of all their collaborations, 1982 s horror/sci-fi amalgalm The Thing surely tops the list.
A research team based out in the snowy wilds of Antartica find themselves beseiged by a terrifying, shape-shifting creature which has found its way into their base. When it becomes clear that the creature can take the form of any organism it so chooses, the tension within the team reaches breaking point any one of them could be... The Thing.
Critically panned at the time of its release, John Carpenter s The Thing has rightly gone on to become one of the most celebrated sci-fi horror efforts ever made now newly restored by Arrow Video in a stunning 4K transfer supervised by Carpenter and director of photography Dean Cundey.

Excellent edition of the classic John Carpenter The Thing, the original artwork gives the the steelbook the presentation it deserves with hours and hours of extra features packed in to the awesome edition, the transfer is the best I seen and the soundtrack is amazing an instant collectors item before it was even produced thanks zavvi for another great quality steel
The Thing is one of my all time favourite movies of the horror genre. When I found out that Arrow video were doing a 4k restoration of the original film I jumped at the chance to pre order this. Another plus is that it was going to be released as a steel book. The art is lovely they have the original artwork embossed on a steel book which looks good on my blu ray shelf. The film is very claustrophobic and scary, characters are well depicted, the practical effects are still amazing to this day. The very concept of an invisible invading enemy creating mistrust is definitely an allegory of how we can be divided. This film and special edition and steel book should be a part of any blu ray collection. Highly recommended.
Excellent steelbook and a great addition to my collection..thank you savvier...
