I watched The Thing last night (again), and I noticed that Morricone performed the music, for the life of me I'd always thought Carpenter did the music himself as he usually does, it sounds just like his style.
The soundtrack is awesome and creates the mood of the whole film.
Does anyone know how Ennio came to perform the soundtrack instead of Carpenter?


There are 2 tracks where you can unmistakingly hear Carpenters Music.
Humanity (Part II) (7:15) has Carpenter synthesizer keyboard based rhythm section running the length of the track. This is the music from the opening scenes.
Its basicily 3 quarters Morricone, the last quarter when the loud organ type synthesizer solo kicks in, is Carpenter.  (In trademark horror overdrive)
Maybe there was a colaboration. I hope so. Even though the credits are given completely to Morrricone.

There is the other track that sounds like its just Carpenter, i think it could be 'Wait' ?

I think i need to listen to it again.

Oh yes, the Thing.. just noticed this thread.. One of my first DVD purchases.. I too saw it on a projector on one of the walls of my apartment, and yes.. fear. And a feeling during the whole movie that this has got to go wrong. Like it's said in Se7en by Freeman:
"I have a feeling this is not going to have a happy ending.."
That's the feeling you get from Thing as well. And it's so beautifully shot.
Now, anyone knows if The Fog exists in a decent R2-version?

Speaking about Lovecrafts tales turned into movies, M. Night Shyamalan had just finished "The Village", inspired in several Lovecraft tales.

The trailer is already available.

Lovecraft is great. Can't wait if it gets a decent treatment.

Is Mr. Night in better shape this year? Coz Unbreakable and Signs weren't anything to write home about... And what is it with John Carpenter? Why can't he direct another decent movie? He is living on the past... he should seek new inspiration from maybe oriental films -

"Ghosts of Mars".. jeeezz... Shape up, John!! Cheesy

Halloween 9 will probably be awful, but probably a lot better than his recent efforts: Ghosts Of Mars, Vampires, and Escape From L.A.

On the Assault on Presinct 13 DVD theres a recording of a Carpenter film festival Q&A at the Chinese Theatre.

You here somebody ask him. "Why don't you make a western? Your films are modern takes on westerns or just carry influences."

Carpenter just said "No way. You have to clean up all that horse s%*t between takes"  Grin

he should seek new inspiration from maybe oriental films


Hes done that 'Big Trouble in Little China' my favourite movie as a kid. ive seen it proberly far to much.

Really??? I'm surprised by that. He hasn't had anything to do with any Halloween sequels in a long time.

I bought The Thing DVD this month and I am extremely happy.

I had other priorities for dvd purchasing, but I don't regret it at all.

It is a great horror and science fiction movie.

Speaking of good horror movies I watched last night Brian de Palma's "Carrie" for the first time in many years and the ar some serious scary scenes....

I am a huge DePalma fan, but I do enjoy most of his other thrillers more, such as Dressed To Kill, Obsession, Sisters, and Blow Out. Carrie is great in many ways, but I still regard it as slightly overrated.

Lovecraft's a big influence on Carpenter, but I thought that Carpenter's take on Lovecraft on the whole wasn't too good. In The Mouth of Madness just didn't do it for me.

I'm a HUGE John Carpenter fan. I also think he's one of the most underrated director's of his time. He's made some great films, "The Thing" being one of them. It's FANTASTIC horror film. One of the best atmospheric films you will ever see. John Carpenter has a great knack for that. Rounding off is the a great score by Ennio Morricone making this one of the greatest horror films ever made.

Also, check out the original "The Thing From Another World" (1951). A classic of the genre.
