Without a shadow of doubt easily my favourite John Carpenter film and certainly a movie that makes my own personal top 10. Personal nostalgia ? well I clearly remember seeing the poster for this outside my local cinema and thinking how cool is that ! This original The Thing movie poster was designed by Les Edwards and was so successful that it’s central theme and imagery were used as a basis for the Worldwide advertising campaign; notably France, Japan & Italy only the USA used different artwork (another great poster by Drew Struzan)…The original 1982 UK quad film poster for John Carpenter’s classic The Thing¬†offered here was originally folded (as issued) & presents in excellent original unrestored condition with colour tones and unfaded black background. It represents a very collectable & highly desirable original film poster from a movie rightly regarded as a classic of the genre.

“Childs, we’re going out to give Blair the test. If you see him trying to make his way back here and we’re not with him… burn him !”
