Synopsis:
The Thing 2011, Extended and tweaked .

When I contructed "THE THINGS" edit ( a mashup of both the 1982 and 2011 versions), I also made an extended version of the 2011 version.

We all hoped to see the original VFX that were sgot with practical effects that were later replaced in post production, but this will clearly now not occur.

Over the years, I have shared this version with a few on the site, to favorable responses. So on that basis (and yet another request to wither make this oedit or release it), I believe now is the time to re-appraise this film.

The one provisio I make to any who review this is that this was the last Standard Definition edit I made, So please do not scor it down on image on that basis. It was and is DVD quality, and older DVD based edits were not penalised back then, so please bear this in mind.

I will in the fullness of time, make an HD version of this....eventually.

ENJOY to all

Intention:
To remove the egregious VFX elements and over exposition and improve the overall viewing experience.
Other Sources:
The Thing 1982 CD
The Thing 2011 CD
Special Thanks:
Davbroo2 for insisting this be made available.
Release Information:
Digital
Editing Details:
This version addressed a few issues:

- It added in nearly all the deleted material
- Trimmed some of the more egregious VFX
- Trimmed some of the over exposition
- made some selective scoring enhancements

I never relased this due to the overwhelming bad reviews and fan reaction to the film back then.

Cuts and Additions:
Since the original file and timeline have been lost, this brief description is what I offer...best to watch I say...

I had a blast watching this fan edit of the Thing 2011. I feel this fanatic definitely improve the movie, and got me engaged right at the beginning.

I am by no means a writer, or someone who writes reviews for movies at that. This will be short and sweet.

First I will say I saw The Thing in theatres when it was released, and like most horror fans I thought it was unfortunate they used CG over the practical effects they had already created. I watched the film again once it came out to disc and it sat on the shelf since finding this forum and Wraiths edit.

Basically a decade later it felt like I was watching the film for the first time. I recalled a few key scenes as if I had only seen them in a trailer before. I couldn't tell you if this was the theatrical release or a fan edit. Video and audio cuts were seamless and it was a pleasure to watch this film again, which may be due to Wraith's editing. My one complaint would be that the file I watched was in 480.

Thank you for sharing your work Wraith!
