Blu-Ray & DVD John Carpenter’s ‘The Thing’ Blu-Ray From Scream Factory Has Been Delayed Published 3 years ago on August 18, 2016 By Nick Bond Share Tweet Fans of John Carpenter’s horror classic The Thing will have to wait a little longer for the Scream Factory Collector’s Edition to hit shelves, but it will be well worth it. The reason is because of a manufacturing error, which will delay the film for another three weeks. The good news is that the film will be released with plenty of time left to pick it for Halloween night, so October 11th is the perfect date. “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.” DISC ONE: NEW 2K Scan Of The Interpositive Supervised And Approved By Director Of Photography Dean Cundey NEW 4.1 Audio Mix Created From The Original 70MM Six Track Dolby Stereo Soundtrack (5.1 Audio Mix Also Included) NEW Audio Commentary With Director Of Photography Dean Cundey NEW Audio Commentary With Co-producer Stuart Cohen Audio Commentary By Director John Carpenter And Actor Kurt Russell Teaser Trailer Theatrical Trailers (U.S. And German) TV Spots Radio Spots Still Gallery (Behind-The-Scenes Photos, Posters And Lobby Cards) DISC TWO: NEW Requiem For A Shape Shifter – An Interview With Director John Carpenter In Conversation With Filmmaker Mick Garris NEW The Men Of Outpost 31 – Interviews With Keith David, Wilford Brimley, David Clennon, Thomas Waites, Peter Maloney, Richard Masur And Joel Polis NEW Assembling And Assimilation – An Interview With Editor Todd Ramsay NEW Behind The Chameleon: The Visual Effects Of THE THING – Interviews With Visual Effects Artists Peter Kuran And Susan Turner, Special Make-up Effects Artist Rob Burman, Brian Wade And Stop Motion Animators Randall William Cook And Jim Aupperle NEW Sounds From The Cold – Interviews With Supervising Sound Editor David Lewis Yewdall And Special Sound Effects Designer Alan Howarth NEW Between The Lines – An Interview With Novelization Author Alan Dean Foster NEW Back Into The Cold: A Return To The Shooting Locations Of THE THING – An Animated Photo Gallery Narrated By Todd Cameron Of Outpost31.com NEW The Art Of Mike Ploog Gallery John Carpenter’s The Thing: Terror Takes Shape – A Documentary On The Making Of THE THING Featuring Interviews With John Carpenter, Kurt Russell, Special Effects Make-up Designer Rob Bottin, Legendary Matte Artist Albert Whitlock Plus Members Of The Cast And Crew (80 minutes – SD) Network TV Broadcast Version Of THE THING (92 minutes – SD) Outtakes (5 minutes – SD) Vintage Featurettes From The Electronic Press Kit Featuring Interviews With John Carpenter, Kurt Russell And Rob Bottin Vintage Featurettes – The Making Of A Chilling Tale And The Making Of THE THING Vintage Product Reel – Contains A Condensed Version Of The Film With Additional Footage Not In The Film (19 minutes – SD) Vintage Behind-The-Scenes Footage (2 minutes – SD) Annotated Production Archive – Production Art And Storyboards, Location Scouting, Special Make-up Effects, Post Production (54 minutes – SD) You can pre-order your copy of Scream Factory’s The Thing Blu-Ray right here!
