Universal is re-releasing John Carpenter’s The Thing. It looks like it will be part of a promotional thing for Dawn of the Dead, being released on the same day as Dawn. There are some special features and a better transfer, but it really doesn’t look like a whole lot is going to be attached to it, but you can take a look for yourself.
