Vice Press Releasing Lenticular Version of Drew Struzan’s ‘The Thing’ Poster Art This Thursday

Horror movie posters don’t get much more iconic than Drew Struzan‘s artwork for The Thing, an evocative piece of art depicting a mysterious man with a blinding light bursting out of his face. Struzan’s art captured the “ultimate in alien terror” tagline for the film, as well as the cold, wintry setting that trapped John Carpenter’s characters in a battle with that alien terror.

You’ve seen the art and it’s quite possibly even hanging on your walls, but you’ve never seen it quite like this before. Coming from Vice Press and Bottleneck Gallery this week is a 3D lenticular print of Struzan’s The Thing art, giving life to what was once a static image.

Vice Press explains, “Well known to John Carpenter and cinema fans alike, Drew’s iconic imagery for The Thing comes to life in these amazing lenticular prints. We’ve worked closely with the original source images to ensure that the art is replicated to the highest quality.”

Two versions will be offered up: “Thinner (1mm), flexible PET lenticular print mounted on dense paper backing” and “Thick lenticular print (4mm), akin to plexi-glass, called polystyrene.”

Both types are available for the movie poster or text-free versions of the artwork.
