John Carpenter’s The Thing Slipcover Collector’s Edition with Second RARE Alternate Slipcover

Currently Unavailable

In the winter of 1982, a twelve-man research team at a remote Antarctic research station discovers an alien buried in the snow for over 100,000 years. Soon unfrozen, the form-changing alien wreaks havoc, creates terror… and becomes one of them.

This Collector’s Edition by Shout Factory includes the standard slipcover, along with a second limited edition slipcover that was distributed with the first orders of the edition.
