The Thing - Universal 100th Anniversary Steelbook

The Thing is a must see for any horror fan and one of Carpenter's best. The Blu-ray transfer shows it off in all of its glorious detail and it looks better than it likely ever has. This review is for the fantastic Universal 100th Anniversary steelbook edition. I don't see how collectors of Steelbooks or horror movie buffs can pass this one up.

The Thing

The Thing - Universal 100th Anniversary Steelbook Edition won't get boring and the special effects for that era are very good.

Classic

The Thing - Universal 100th Anniversary Steelbook Edition is a fantastic movie, a great Blu-ray and a great looking steelbook.

The Thing From Another Time

The Thing - Universal 100th Anniversary Steelbook Edition continues to thrive as not only a cult classic, but an outright classic of the horror genre altogether. Rob Bottin's stunning practical effects stand up as well today as they did 30-odd years ago. Some latter half effects creak, but given the production's fraught and time restrained production, they're forgivable, if not at least understandable. Aided by the crisp 1080p transfer, the whites are blinding, the darkness deafening, and the creature effects stupefy in their grotesque levels of detail. Story wise, it's as lean and sharp as the transfer. The all male cast strips away any extraneous love story to focus purely, and terrifyingly, on the paranoia of the next man. Friend or foe? As the darkness physically descends into the prolonged Antarctic winter, so too do our characters, as they frantically turn to defend themselves as equally as they accuse the other.
