Ennio Morricone’s score for John Carpenter’s The Thing gets deluxe vinyl reissue

on February 13, 2017, 2:32pm

John Carpenter’s horror masterpiece The Thing turns 35 this year, which means Ennio Morricone’s haunting score to the film is also celebrating its anniversary. To mark the occasion, Waxwork Records has announced a gorgeous deluxe vinyl reissue of the official soundtrack, due out February 24th.

Morricone’s classic minimal score has been re-mastered from the original tapes and is available in two different editions: a deep blue and white haze “ice” version and a pure white “snow” version. The ice versions comes in the Trapped in the Ice deluxe package, housed in a high-gloss, break-away slipcase designed to look like cracking ice (above). Also included is a booklet featuring a new interview with Carpenter.

Pre-orders are going on here, with the Snow versions going for $32 and the Ice one retailing at $70. Below, listen to selections from the score and take a look at the two different reissue editions.
