The UK's Grimm Up North Closes Out John Carpenter Season with The Thing on 17 JulyThis summer in the UK has been “John Carpenter Season” thanks to Manchester’s Grimm Up North, and it’s coming to a terrifying close this week with a special screening of The Thing at The Dancehouse that includes an exclusive video intro from the horror master himself.

They’ll also have some amazing prizes like a large framed unique edition print of the official “John Carpenter Season” poster plus 3-month subscriptions to Starburst Magazine. The doors open at 7.30 pm this Thursday, 17 July, and the film starts at 8.00 pm.

The Dancehouse Theatre is located at 10 Oxford Road in Manchester. Click here for tickets – you can even select your seat in advance! But you better hurry because they’re going fast.

Synopsis:
“I dunno what the hell’s in there, but it’s weird and pissed off, whatever it is.”

The Thing follows a group of scientists at an Arctic research station who discover an alien spacecraft under the thick ice and thaw out the alien body found aboard. What they don’t know is that the alien can assume any human form, and before long the scientists can’t tell who’s real and who’s a deadly alien threat.

Kurt Russell leads the battle against the terrifying intruder, and the supporting cast includes Richard Masur, Richard Dysart, Donald Moffat, and Wilford Brimley. John Carpenter’s The Thing is both a remake of Howard Hawks’ 1951 film of the same name and a re-adaptation of the John W. Campbell, Jr., story “Who Goes There?” on which it was based. Carpenter’s film is more faithful to Campbell’s story than Hawks’ version and also substantially more reliant on special effects, provided in abundance by a team of over 40 technicians, including veteran creature-effects artists Rob Bottin and Stan Winston.
