Description & Features+

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.

Ratings & Reviews+

The Thing (Blu-ray) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superior Picture Quality 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE THING OF IT 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from As good as Alien... 3 years after Alien, this movie delivers the same level of thrills and suspense with excellent acting and direction from the pair Russell/Carpenter. A classic in movie making. Bust be seen in blu-ray.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blu-Ray is awsome This is one of the few remakes worth watching, probably because it does not contain any of the current "stars". This is an older remake with Kurt Russell. I always have liked this movie, but being digitalyremastered, with 7.1 surround sound makes it look newly made with crystal clarity, with a lot of background sounds. If you can wait a week to get a movie, Walmart always beats everyones prices.
