Brief Synopsis:
Wraith has produced a a PULP FICTION style interweaving of the the 1982 and 2011 versions of The Thing into a single cohesive story which switches the action back and forth between the 2 movies without ruining either the tension or build up. Careful trims to the 2011 (T11) version remove a few overly CGI shots and keep the reveals less explicit until the 1982 version (T82) does its Thing. From there each film loses about a third of its material; but the progression is almost undetectable and the final running time is 2h39min, a very respectable length and consistent with many big blockbusters but is NEVER bloated.

Tightened dialogue throughout keeps the pace but NO required exposition is lost. Some crap lines from the T11 are also removed and numerous score enhancements made not just to tie the two together, but to bring the T11 more in tonal line with T82 (not that it was ever that bad). The score enhancements were taken from the 2011 complete score re-recording which is of outstanding quality, and contains un-used cues by Ennio Morricone and John Carpenter some sections which appear in this edit for the first time. Some sequences were re-ordered and individual shots also re-ordered in places for flow, pace, transition and dramatic effect.

Finally, a DVD Commentary has been produced and this will also be available in time in HD.
