I'm sure most of you already own multiple copies of John Carpenter's timeless classic The Thing but this upcoming release from UK store HMV is well worth double-dipping for!
HMV presents the 'VHS Range', VHS era movies celebrated in a modern and fun limited edition Blu-ray/DVD package.
The box is imprinted with a VHS cassette design, but with the height of a DVD to ensure it fits on shelf. Inside are copies of the movie on both Blu-ray, and DVD featuring cassette reel disc art*. They also include a fold out replica theatrical poster, bubblegum card and sticker.
Horror-meister John Carpenter (Halloween, Escape from New York) teams Kurt Russell's outstanding performance with incredible visuals to build 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. Once unfrozen, the form-changing alien wreaks havoc, creates terror and becomes one of them.
