Last December, Waxwork Records teased a vinyl reissue of John Carpenter and Ennio Morricone’s The Thing and that release has now been officially unveiled.

As is to be expected, Waxwork has gone all out on the packaging, with the blue and white vinyl deluxe edition trapped in a “breakaway ice slip-case” that’s in line with the movie’s Antarctica location. The “old-style satin coated gatefold jacket” comes with spot gloss varnish, an 11″x 22″ poster, and 11″ x 11” booklet featuring an exclusive interview with director John Carpenter.

Composed by Ennio Morricone for John Carpenter’s cult horror, the soundtrack was first released in 1982 but has long been out of print. Incidentally, three unused tracks from The Thing soundtrack appeared on Ennio Morricone’s score for Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful 8 in 2015.
