John Carpenter's 'The Thing' Returns to Theaters to Celebrate the Film's 40th Anniversary This June!

Horror master John Carpenter took to his Twitter account this evening to announce that the folks at Fathom Events will bring The Thing back to theaters to celebrate its 40th anniversary this June!

The Thing is 40 years old! Get your tickets to see it, IN THEATERS, for two days only, on June 19 and 22,” Carpenter shared via a tweet embedded below.

Rob Botting (The Howling) and legendary special make-up effects creator Stan Winston (Terminator 2: Judgment Day) created all the stunning monsters seen throughout The Thing.

The Thing takes place:

“In remote Antarctica, a group of American research scientists are disturbed at their base camp by a helicopter shooting at a sled dog. When they take in the dog, it brutally attacks both human beings and canines in the camp and they discover that the beast can assume the shape of its victims. A resourceful helicopter pilot (Kurt Russell) and the camp doctor (Richard Dysart) lead the camp crew in a desperate, gory battle against the vicious creature before it picks them all off, one by one.”

The film stars Kurt Russell, Wilford Brimley, T.K. Carter, David Clennon, Keith David, Richard Dysart, Charles Hallahan, and Peter Maloney.
