-----------------
A double-bill of sci-fi horror. In John Carpenter's 'The Thing' (1982), a research team in the Antarctic, led by R.J. MacReady (Kurt Russell), discovers a spaceship buried beneath the ice, and becomes terrorised by the shape-changing monster that is housed within. In the 2011 prequel, the action is set on a research site in Antarctica three days before the action of the original story, the film focusing on the Norwegian camps that were the initial target of the alien invasion. When they discover an alien spacecraft on the site, science graduate Kate Lloyd (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) and experienced researcher Dr Sander Halvorson (Ulrich Thomsen) disagree about how to act. When Dr Halvorson refuses to abandon his research, Kate teams up with tough Vietnam veteran Sam Carter (Joel Edgerton) to pursue the alien intruders by helicopter.

Good price.
Worth it for Carpenter's version alone which looks great on BD,
And honesty the later prequel isn't half as bad as some remakes/reboots out there.

Hot from me.

Cracking price for both movies, even if one is a bit rubbish.

If you're a big fan of the 1982 film, you might be interested to know that there was a new special edition blu ray released this year. Which I'd rather have tbh

the shout factory collectors edition is far superior, new print, and all the extras you could want,

watched it last night... still a great movie.

The thing is a great film and it doesn't even look dated today, and it's even better than the original

Greatest horror movie ever made - and a decent prequel as well

Which order would anybody recommend watching these in?
