Scream Factory Releasing John Carpenter’s ‘The Thing’ On Two-Disc Blu-ray This Fall
  |  

In my opinion there is no greater fusion of science fiction and horror than The Thing, John Carpenter‘s 1982 masterpiece of frostbitten fear and otherworldly invaders. It may have flopped hard at the box office when it first opened (a week following the release of E.T. – wow, that could not have been a pretty sight), but the film has gained a massive cult following over the years thanks to repeated cable airings and home video rentals and sales, and it has endured as an unbeatable genre classic.

Scream Factory, the offshoot of Shout! Factory devoted to releasing only the finest in sci-fi and horror cinema on Blu-ray and DVD, is preparing to give us fans of The Thing its definitive home video edition when it releases Carpenter’s timeless film on collector’s edition and deluxe limited edition Blu-ray this fall.

MST3K: Volume II
DVD (4-Disc Set)
Cast: Joel Hodgson, Michael J. Nelson, Kevin Murphy, Trace Beaulieu, Frank Conniff, Jim Mallon
Distributor: Shout! Factory
Not Rated | 480 Minutes
Release Date: May 24, 2016

“Tolkien couldn’t follow this plot!”

In this re-release of the second volume of episodes from the cult comedy series Mystery Science Theater 3000, Joel Hodgson, Michael J. Nelson, Tom Servo (Kevin Murphy), and Crow T. Robot (Trace Beaulieu) endure unimaginable – but wildly entertaining – cinematic atrocities.

Originally released in 2003 by Rhino Entertainment, MST3K: Volume II fell out of print, allowing third-party sellers to raise prices to astronomical levels. Thankfully, Shout! Factory is here to save us from those price gouging fiends.

In this collection, you’ll find cave dwellers, pod people, vengeful angels, and junior rodeo daredevils. MST3K: Volume II features three episodes from the Comedy Central era, two with Joel Hodgson as host and one with Mike Nelson. There’s also Shorts Vol. 1, which includes seven shorts from the series. It’s a fun, wide-ranging mix of episodes spanning seasons three and six. Continue reading for detailed synopses of each episode!
