It’s Not Human. Yet.
The prequel to John Carpenter’s eponymously-named film (with potentially the coolest tagline in years) is coming out October 14th; though if you can’t wait 6 days, I may have found something to hold you over till then.
Dark Horse Comics has issued a free three-issue digital comic based upon the mythology of the film, written by Steve Niles (30 Days of Night), that’s available here.
If you’re among the survivors of that terror-filled voyage, check out Universal’s official “The Thing” website, where you’re invited to hunt the creature, download wallpaper, and explore the station.
Though, as far as I am concerned, the website gets serious props for using the music from the original film, composed by Ennio Morricone.
As a little bonus, here are the production notes for the upcoming prequel; though all the “Carpenter love” shown therein makes me nervous because, if the producers admired his work so much, they could have hired him to direct.
