John Carpenters classic cult sci-fi movie has been one of my favourites since first seeing it on VHS as an 11yr old boy! The location, the mood, the acting, the effects & the music moved me as a yongster… It wasn’t so much the horror or suspense of this movie it was the depth that stirred in me the most that got me… Who was next to be infected? & by what?? Many conversations with friends who loved The Thing as much as myself over the years, spurred me on to write a low-fi instrumental piece of music, so yesterday I edited the 1982 trailer to fit the short tune… which uses dialogue from Kurt Russel’s narration as well as the signature theme tune chords that John played.
