    Default The Thing

    A british company has cleaned up and restored John Carpenters The Thing-they have done a great job.

    If you liked it on dvd/blu ray tis version ups the ante IMHO.

    Great movie, one of my favourites.
    Thanks for the heads up tony, will wait for the (inevitable) 4K UHD release.

    Fingers crossed Arrow re-masters The Fog next.

    Indeed

    In terms of a 4K UHD release, you'd think that if they were going to do that, they'd have done it with the remastered reissue, thus bringing things up to the current highest spec?

    Anyway, I'm happy with the Blu-ray for now. If the 4K UHD release happens, I'll get it on Sky Box Office

    Is this definitely UHD, or is it 1080p Blueray from a 4K remaster?
    No mention of UHD in the description...just wondering.

    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 amalgam The Thing surely tops the list.

    A research team based out in the snowy wilds of Antarctica find themselves besieged 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.
