Considered to be John Carpenter’s directorial masterpiece, THE THING is praised as one of the greatest films of it’s genre by both fans and critics. Starring Kurt Russell and A. Wilford Brimley, THE THING follows a team of researchers in Antarctica as they are infiltrated by a parasitic extraterrestrial life form that assimilates other organisms and then imitates them. The classic soundtrack composed by Ennio Morricone effectively captures the cold, isolated tone of the story and film, and marks one of the few John Carpenter directed films that Carpenter did not score himself.
Waxwork Records worked to ensure that such a highly anticipated and sought after vinyl film core re-issue would meet and exceed expectations.
Features include the complete Ennio Morricone score re-mastered, "Antarctic Swirl" colored vinyl housed in a deluxe breakaway ice slipcase or "Alien Blood and Bone" colored vinyl, artwork by Phantom City Creative, deluxe heavyweight packaging including satin coated old-style gatefold jackets with UV spot-gloss varnish, and an 11” x 17” poster.
