    I have the current DVD of The Thing. It truly is a great, underrated film. The DVD is satisfactory but it needs a new, anamorphic transfer, soundtrack remaster and some extras (i.e. deleted scenes). Anyone know of any plans for a new release? HTF hasn't had a chat with Universal entertainment in a while.

    I don't know of any plans on Universal's part. It's annoying as hell knowing this title isn't getting the treatment it deserves (a shiny new anamorphic transfer) but that Universal felt the need to give us Patch Adams and Notting Hill Ultimate Editions!

    Please use a question mark in the thread title before people, like myself, get excited about something we only hope would happen. Thanks.

    Heh. You had me all excited too.

    I hate double dipping with DVD's usually but I'd be more than happy to do so for this film given a new transfer & any additional extras.. Hell I'd probably give in for just a new transfer.

    Sorry, didn't mean to get people excited. Unfortunately they don't allow you to change the thread title.

    I don't think the transfer is that bad on the DVD. It's an old film. I saw a print of the film at Juliard and it was not that great. I am thankful for the DVD even being there, but it definitely needs a remaster and anamorphic transfer.
