Thread: Scream Factory / Arrow Releasing Carpenter's The Thing

  1. #21
    I dont know, maybe im just a grouch but actual good releases of good films are few and far between. There is an awful lot of trash being released and there is a horrible "fan" culture around at the moment fixated on packaging. People who have seen collectors editions live, breathe and die on other formats just roll their eyes and shrug, lol. Also there is a sheep-ish label following instigated by the likes of and too many sweaty 20 year old nerds who should stick to the super hero films to be honest polluting up the air waves and putting me off my dinner.

    It is official, our THE THING release has been our biggest ever announcement - so big that our very own website collapsed under the force of this beast!

    Standard Arrow edition coming in Nov.

    Over the years, star Kurt Russell and master of horror John Carpenter have teamed up on a multitude of films (Big Trouble in Little China and Escape from New York to name a few) but of all their collaborations, 1982 s horror/sci-fi amalgam The Thing surely tops the list.

    A research team based out in the snowy wilds of Antarctica find themselves besieged by a terrifying, shape-shifting creature which has found its way into their base. When it becomes clear that the creature can take the form of any organism it so chooses, the tension within the team reaches breaking point any one of them could be... The Thing.

    Critically panned at the time of its release, John Carpenter’s The Thing has rightly gone on to become one of the most celebrated sci-fi horror efforts ever made now newly restored by Arrow Video in a stunning 4K transfer supervised by Carpenter and director of photography Dean Cundey.

    Today I ordered the standard ed. from Arrow UK. The screenshots look really good so I'm curious as hell to see it in motion. A couple of the shots from the SF look better but more of the Arrow transfer look 'natural' without any processing. I'm hoping Arrow doesn't cancel the order due to my being in the U.S.; I think I read posts from Americans who have ordered directly from them for code B releases.

    I watched it the other night. Looks bloody awesome, and such a crazy good film, truly one of the greats. It's one of the few films I never get bored of rewatching, kind of like Alien and Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Even though I know every line and camera angle, it still manages to be such a tense and effective horror film every time I watch it.

    I'm waiting on my copy to arrive from the UK & now I see DiabolikDVD has it! They told me they were not "allocated" any copies so I ordered from Arrow. Looking back, I guess Diabolik meant the lim.ed.
