‘The Thing: Infection at Outpost 31’: The Horror News Network Review

In 1982 John Carpenter unleashed a horror film that chilled viewers bones and took paranoia to an unseen level. Set in the harsh weather backdrop of Antarctica, a group of researchers are attacked by a hostile shape-shifting alien. The Thing boasted renowned actors such as Kurt Russell, Wilford Brimley, Keith David, and Richard Dysart in the ensemble cast.

Released in November 2017 by Mondo Games and Project Raygun, The Thing: Infection at Outpost 31 takes us back to Outpost 31 and to the harsh weather of Antarctica. All twelve characters from the film MacReady, Blair, Nauls, Palmer, Childs, Dr. Copper, Norris, Bennings, Clark, Garry, Fuchs, and Windows are available for players. Each of the player comes with their own miniature game piece and an ID card complete with a quote from the movie and their unique “captain powers.” read more

Set for April 26th, 2018 (because “4/26” sounds kind of like “LV-426,” the name of the infamous planet where the crew of the Nostromo encounter the viscous little facehugger), the event will include everything from sale prices on digital purchases of classic Alien movies to an Aliens pinball tournament. Special products will be available from such companies as Dark Horse Comics, Fright Rags, Neca, Funko, Mondo, Mattel, and Diamond Select. read more
