the thing commission

i recently had the incredible opportunity to work on a poster commission of one of my favorite horror movies of all time: john carpenter's "the thing"!

i love the sense of dread and uncertainty that the film delivers, even upon repeat viewings. and there's just something to be said about action/horror ensemble casts from the 80's...from "the thing" to "aliens" to "predator", it just seems like filmmakers knew how to flesh out supporting characters well enough to make you genuinely care about them. seems kinda like a lost art to me.

anyway, i hear there's a prequel/sequel to "the thing" in the works. i won't write it off this early in the process, but i will say that it'll be a minor miracle if the filmmakers can create something worthy of standing alongside this 80's masterpiece.

Such a great flick.
The flame thrower is key. How could anyone forget the scene where they are testing everyone's blood - glad you worked it into the design.
The lone wolf in the hair is a nice touch too.
