John Carpenter's The Thing, the 1982 John Carpenter horror science fiction (sci-fi) thriller ("The Ultimate in Alien Terror."; "Man is the warmest place to hide."; set in Antarctica; "Based on the story 'Who Goes There?' by John W. Campbell Jr."; it is a re-make of the 1951 movie, "The Thing from Another World", based on the same story, and with James Arness as "The Thing") starring Kurt Russell, Wilford Brimley, T.K. Carter, David Clennon, Keith David, Richard Masur, and Donald Moffat. This is one of Carpenter's best movies, and in many ways it is more enjoyable and superior to the original version!

Artist: Drew Struzan
Important Added Info: Note that we have noticed that there appear to be three different versions of this poster, the only difference being the placement of Kurt Russell's credit and the bottom white border. On this poster, he is listed at lower left in a not very prominent position and there is no film title in the bottom border. On the other posters, he is listed separately on his own line and some of those posters have a title in the bottom border and some do not. Perhaps he was not happy with his billing on this poster and new posters were printed with the different credits arrangement! All three styles are original first release posters.

Condition: very good to fine.
