John Carpenter’s The Thing

1 November 2016 11:46 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Look out: John Carpenter's chilly tale of shape-shifting chaos at the South Pole creeps back with a new transfer and two fully stocked discs of extras old and new, including the bowdlerized Network cut, just for laughs. The picture still works like gangbusters -- the best monsters are still the gooey, rubbery pre-cgi kind. John Carpenter's The Thing Collector's Edition Blu-ray Scream Factory 1982 / Color / 2:35 widescreen / 109 min. / Street Date September 20, 2016 / 34.93 Starring Kurt Russell, Wilford Brimley, T.K. Carter, David Clennon, Keith David, Richard Dysart, Charles Hallahan, Peter Maloney, Richard Masur, Donald Moffat, Joel Polis. Cinematography Dean Cundey Production Design John J. Lloyd Special Makeup Effects Rob Bottin Film Editor Todd Ramsay Original Music Ennio Morricone Written by Bill Lancaster from the short story "Who Goes There?"by John W.

Blu-ray Review – The Thing Collector’s Edition

11 October 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Thing Collector’s Edition

Directed by John Carpenter.

Starring Kurt Russell, Wilford Brimley, T.K. Carter, David Clennon, Keith David, Richard Dysart, Charles Hallahan, Peter Maloney, Richard Masur, Donald Moffat, Joel Polis, Thomas Waites.

Synopsis:

The Thing arrives on Blu-ray again in a comprehensive two-disc set from Shout! Factory. All the previously released bonus features are included, along with about two-and-a-half hours of new interviews and two new commentary tracks. This Collector’s Edition also offers a new 2K scan of the film print. Highly recommended.

 

Did you notice that The Thing movie poster on the basement wall in Stranger Things? (Of course you did.) Interesting that the creators of that series chose that bit of 80s ephemera, rather than a poster for E.T. or Poltergeist, two films that crushed Carpenter’s now-classic movie at the box office in 1982.

Sure, that Thing poster was a gun on the mantelpiece alluding »
