The Thing Collector's Edition Blu Ray Coming Sept 20th

The Thing remains as a classic John Carpenter movie for many including me, and if you've never seen it, now is a brilliant time to catch it. Set in 1982, an Antarctic research team discovers an alien buried and frozen in the snow for over 100,000 years. It defrosts and things go reeaaaally nuts. A prequel was made awhile back and actually I really liked it, but the original just had class that it could not compare to. Sadly some good features from the DVD are
getting the chop but this is a nice bunch of new features also being added.
