The clever folk at ShortList Magazine posted on another seminal John Carpenter flick, The Thing. Examining a number of the alternative movie posters that have grown over the years for this cult classic.
“So it was with a heavy heart that we spied these alternative posters for Carpenter’s cult classic. Thankfully, we calmed down and remembered it was just a film and then we remembered the tagline: Man is the warmest place to hide.”
While I still love the legendary Drew Struzan poster (completed in just 24 hours), I wish studio wonks would have stayed with the bleak pre-release icescape poster. Still, all those depicted in their pictorial work equally well for this icy sci-fi/horror masterpiece. Check it out.
