You may hate remakes, but we can all agree that The Thing was a great one.
I’m not sure there’s a better remake on this planet than John Carpenter’s practical effects-laden The Thing, released in the summer of 1982. If you do a little number crunching, you’ll realize that this year is the film’s 35th anniversary, and the folks over at Burbank, California store Creature Features are celebrating a little bit early with a special tribute art exhibit this weekend.
The 35th anniversary group art show will have its opening reception on Saturday, April 8th from 6-9pm PDT. The show will run thru Sunday, April 16th during regular gallery hours.
In 1982, Director John Carpenter unleashed a motion picture that shocked audiences and set new standards in terror and special effects. Now, nearly 35 years later, Creature Features & Printed in Blood, Inc. proudly present an unprecedented group art show celebrating this cinematic masterpiece.
This exhibit showcases original work from over 100 artists all over the world, paying tribute to Carpenter’s chilling vision (and a few choice tributes to its original 1951 predecessor).
The exhibit also includes a major sneak peek at Printed in Blood, Inc’s upcoming THE THING Artbook showcasing over 400-pages of original tribute art.
But why wait until Saturday? We’ve just been provided with an exclusive first look at The Thing art show, so take a peek down below for a small handful of pieces that’ll be on display!
