Marco Beltrami's The Thing
24-Oct-2011 - From Varèse Sarabande comes the score for The Thing. The story: Antarctica, an extraordinary continent of awesome beauty. It is also home to an isolated outpost where a discovery full of scientific possibility becomes a mission of survival when an alien is unearthed by a crew of international scientists. The shape-shifting creature, accidentally unleashed at this marooned colony, has the ability to turn itself into a perfect replica of any living being. Paleontologist Kate Lloyd has traveled to the desolate region for the expedition of her lifetime. Joining a Norwegian scientific team that has stumbled across an extraterrestrial ship buried in the ice, she discovers an organism that seems to have died in the crash eons ago. But it is about to wake up. When a simple experiment frees the alien from its frozen prison, Kate must join the crew’s pilot, Carter, to keep it from killing them off one at a time. The Thing serves as a prelude to John Carpenter’s classic 1982 film of the same name. Composer Marco Beltrami follows in the footsteps of one of his own musical heroes, Ennio Morricone, who scored the Carpenter classic.
Score available from, Amazon UK, Amazon France and Amazon Germany.
