Over the years, star Kurt Russell and master of horror John Carpenter have teamed up on a multitude of films (Big Trouble in Little China and Escape from New York to name a few) but of all their collaborations, 1982 s horror/sci-fi amalgam The Thing surely tops the list.
A research team based out in the snowy wilds of Antarctica find themselves besieged by a terrifying, shape-shifting creature which has found its way into their base. When it becomes clear that the creature can take the form of any organism it so chooses, the tension within the team reaches breaking point any one of them could be... The Thing.

How are orders despatched?

Sometimes we will use our suppliers and distributor labels to ship the item direct to you in order to reduce delivery times.
WHY DO SOME ITEMS INCUR BACKORDER AND DELAYS IN DELIVERY? Whilst we always aim to keep items in stock so we can ship your order immediately, unfortunately this is not always possible for a number of reasons: 1. Our aim is to offer you a wide range of dvd & blu ray titles and some of these are fast sellers which can quickly run out of stock and therefore we need to source these to order. 2. Sometimes we are reliant on labels and distributors and we have no control over delays incurred by our third party suppliers.
All non-delivered items will be replaced or refunded in full as our deliveries are insured against loss/damage.
