About the DVD

“Horror movies don’t get much better than this.” – Scott Weinberg, eFilmCritic.com

Horror master John Carpenter (Halloween, Escape From New York) delivers “a masterful exercise in claustrophobic suspense… [with] elaborate special effects [that] set a high standard for films that followed” (TV Guide). Kurt Russell’s iconic and tense performance drives 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.
