Just in time for Halloween, it's the long awaited return of The Thing! Matthijs van Heijningen Jr. directs this thriller, which recounts the horrific events leading up to the 1982 classic horror film John Carpenter's The Thing. Mary Elizabeth Winstead stars as a paleontologist that travels to Antarctica for an expedition, but when she meets up with her Norwegian teammates, she discovers that there is a shape-shifting parasite hiding among them intent on killing every human in sight. Our own Ryan J. Downey recently caught up with Mary Elizabeth Winstead, as well as co-stars Eric Christian Olsen and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, for a look at this monsterous prequel. Creative director for Halloween Horror Nights, John Murdy was also on hand to discuss The Thing's presence at Universal Studios this October. Check out our exclusive interview featurette below.
