The Thing From Another World/The Thing:at our store, we stock over 2000 models, so if you see the manufacturer, but not the model, don't be shy - give us a call and we will be happy to check! This review is for the Warner Archive blu ray, released Q4 2018.For those wondering: this is easily the best this film has looked, likely since its original theatrical release. Warners has done an amazing job restoring and cleaning the film. My reference is the version that regularly screens on Turner Classic Movies - which, while not awful, was also generally only acceptable at best, with many shots being blurry to the point of being hard to comprehend.From what I understand, obtaining good prints and complete prints of the film was very challenging. There are certain shots and scenes which lack the crispness we associate with HD releases - they look more like solid DVD or new VHS images. However, these are the minority; the vast majority of the film is crisp, clear, and wonderfully presented. There is grain/some noise, but it's not distracting or detrimental to the film image.Sound is good and clear all the way through. I think it retains the original mono sound, but it may have been remastered for stereo. If so, the sound remains fairly flat but true to the original release.This is a must buy for fans of the film, and for fans of great SF films in general.las vegas mall,ranking top14,san jose mallThe Thing From Another World/The Thing

Editorial Reviews

Both film versions of the sci-fi thriller based on a story by John W Campbell Jr in which an unidentified object crashes in the North Pole. The B-movie cult classic version directed by Howard Hawks, 'The Thing from Another World' (1951), stars Kenneth Tobey as Air Force pilot Captain Hendry. John Carpenter's special effects-laden update, 'The Thing', was made 32 years later in 1983.

All Abuzz About Bugs!

We are an online community of naturalists who enjoy learning about and sharing our observations of insects, spiders, and other related creatures.

We enjoy the opportunity to instill in others the fascination and appreciation that we share for the intricate lives of these oft-maligned creatures.

Our Mission

Using the best resources we have access to, we are creating a knowledgebase to help each other and the online community.

Our Method

We collect photographs of bugs from the United States and Canada for identification and research.

We summarize our findings in guide pages for each order, family, genus, and species.

Making New Discoveries

More than just a clearinghouse for information, this site helps expand on the natural histories of our subjects. By capturing the place and time that submitted images were taken, we are creating a virtual collection that helps define where and when things might be found.

We capture never-before-seen behaviors and we have photos of species that you won't find anywhere else on the web.
