“Somebody in this camp ain’t what he appears to be”.

Waxwork Records have just finished another year of unearthing horror soundtracks on vinyl, but they’re already hinting at exciting things for 2017. Today the label teased a vinyl reissue of John Carpenter and Ennio Morricone’s The Thing.

The label revealed the news with a tweet using an iconic line from the film along with a video of a record being played. As fans of the film’s unforgettably chilling score to connection is obvious.

So we know this is going down, the more pressing question is vinyl color. Snow-colored vinyl? Thing-flesh splatter pressing? Or maybe a white-into-blue explosion like the cover. There are options here.
