The iconic science-fiction horror film The Thing will be returning to theaters for two days only next month to celebrate its 40th anniversary!
The Thing was released in 1982 and was directed by John Carpenter from a screenplay by Bill Lancaster. Based on the 1938 John W. Campbell Jr. novella Who Goes There? and its 1951 film adaption The Thing from Another World. It tells the story of a research base under attack by an extraterrestrial being able to change its form, and the paranoia that ensues as they try to survive. While The Thing originally released to negative reviews, it is now considered a staple of the genre and as one of the most well known horror movies ever released.
John Carpenter’s The Thing’s 40th Anniversary screenings will let fans experience the classic movie in theaters, alongside the Terror Takes Shape documentary which features behind-the-scenes details, cutscenes, and interviews with the filmmakers.
John Carpenter’s The Thing 40th Anniversary screenings will be on June 19th & 22nd. You can learn more and get your ticket by heading to the official Fathom Events site.
