the thing commission by strongstuff the thing commission by strongstuff
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.

Absolutely love this, incredible flick, incredible piece of artwork. I hope you don't mind I've just featured it on my tumblr [link] - let me know if you'd rather I remove it - just thought it was brilliant :)
