Movie Description

The following content was provided by the publisher.

From the producers of "Dawn of the Dead" comes the chilling prelude to John Carpenter's cult classic film. When paleontologist Kate Lloyd (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) travels to an isolated outpost in Antarctica for the expedition of a lifetime, she joins an international team that unearths a remarkable discovery. Their elation quickly turns to fear as they realize that their experiment has freed a mysterious being from its frozen prison. Paranoia spreads like an epidemic as a creature that can mimic anything it touches will pit human against human as it tries to survive and flourish in this spine-tingling thriller.

Deleted/extended scenes, The Thing evolves, Fire & ice, Feature commentary with director Matthijs van Heijningen and producer Eric Newman.

Subtitles: English SDH (Subtitles for Deaf and Hearing Impaired), French and Spanish.

Rated 5 out of 5★ by good movie I enjoy this one and the John Carpenter version as well. Site to store is so easy, cheap, & timely. 07/27/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by I had been searching for a copy of this film, the 2011 prequel to "The Thing", at a greatly reduced price, and not only did I find what I wanted, but at a lower price than I had found anywhere else, including on the auction sites, such as ebay, amazon, or any other site. Thank you greatly for such an excellent online service. 12/10/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Excellent Value For your money (On Sale)! The movie was a super great value for just $5 (Sale Price) with plenty of bonus extras on this DVD. It compliments the 1982 movie perfectly. Sadly the 1950 B&W version is not available on DVD, so it's just the 1982 version & this 2011 version that's only available on DVD and Blue Ray formats! 04/17/2014
