The Thing (Original) Blu-Ray
The ultmate sci-fi horro extravaganza is back! From director John Carpenter (Big Trouble in Little China, Halloween), The Thing returns from the cold, dark depths of outer space in a brand new restoration from Arrow Video. A research team headed up by R.J. MacReady (Kurt Russell) finds itself menaced by a terrifying, shape-shifting alien out in the snow-blasted wilds of Antarctica. With the creature on the loose in their base and able to assimilate any organism it chooses, the tension within the team reaches breaking point - any one of them could be... The Thing. Featuring som eo fthe most stunning (and grisly) practical effects sequences ever created and punctuated by a suitably moody score from Ennio Morricone, 1982's The Thing has rightly gone on to become one of the most celebrated horror movies of all time.
