About this item

Horror-meister John Carpenter ("Halloween," "Escape From New York") teams Kurt Russell's outstanding performance with incredible visuals to build this chilling version of the classic "The Thing." In the winter of 1982, a twelve-man research team at a remote Antarctic research station discovers an alien buried in the snow for over 100,000 years. Soon unfrozen, the form-changing alien wreaks havoc, creates terror and becomes one of them.

This movie rocks! the bluray transfer is almost flawless, blacks are bold and colors are vibrent. there is almost no grain interfearence. JOHN CARPENTER'S THE THING is what horror/sci-fi movies are made of. it keeps a hitchcock paranoia through out the picture giving the ending....the only end it deserves! AWSOME. A MUST SEE.

For a film of this age to look this good on Blu-Ray is not heard of very often! The Blu-Ray transfer of this disc is fantastic. The whites are right on without over saturation & blacks look deep as they should. There is some grain but not too much that it's a issue. This disc is one to show a friend just how good Blu-Ray really is!

John Carpenter went out of this world on making this movie. Cast and crew were just right on bringing the suspence. Special effects were very creative. Just dont show this to the little kids or they will be sleeping in the bed with you for days. Great movie.
