Sci-fi horror classic The Thing is finally getting a long overdue 4K upgrade, and you’ll be able to pick it in the new steelbook edition, featuring the movie on 4K and Blu-ray, with stunning new art by Matt Ferguson.

In what must be a first when it comes to releases by different distributors, Ferguson’s artwork on this Universal release is specifically designed to fit the style of Studio Canal’s previous range of 4K Carpenter steelbooks.

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.
