I am not sure. However, it is showing 80 minutes on the JP disc when the DVD is 87 minutes.

Oops. Didn't realize you were referring to the older film. Rookie mistake.

Here`s what dvdcompare says:
The cut version was released on VHS video tape in the U.S. with a running time 79:45. It is missing several scenes including the scene between Kenneth Tobey and Margaret Sheridan where Hendry "allows" Nikki to tie his hands behind his back. When she tries to give him a drink he slips free, grabs her and kisses her.

No bloody video games or comics are canon. All that matters is the movies, and the ambiguity of the ending is the whole damn point.

No but someone on here said they saw of 4k DCP of They Live at the cinema recently. I'd imagine most of Carpenter's films will follow Halloween with a 4k remaster at some point...

The Thing 1951 was cut for re-issue. Here are the details as compiled by Robin Brunet and posted by Glenn Erickson on DVDTalk:
The first restored scene is Captain Hendry's briefing at General Fogarty's headquarters. The restored part is less than a minute long. It includes a messenger who enters with a weather report, and Fogerty's pithy remark that, for all he cares, Hendry can "maroon" newspaperman Scott at the North Pole.

The second, third and fourth restored scenes were the biggest cuts to The Thing when it was released in '53, and represent a major shift in the tone and narrative of the movie. The second restored scene runs several minutes and consists of Hendry enjoying a shave in the barracks. Ned Scott voices growing frustration over his inability to transmit his story to the outside world and there's more banter between Hendry and his-co-pilot.

The third restored scene occurs immediately after the barracks sequence and involves dialogue between Hendry and Nicki in the mess room (Nicki: "What does that bogey man in the cake of ice really mean?"). The scene culminates in Nicki inviting Hendry to her office and he promising that she can tie his hands together for decorum's sake.

The fourth restored scene is the longest: it is the pivotal 'drinking scene' between Nicki and Hendry in her office. It is a typically Hawksian touch reminiscent of his finest films and adds a romantic undertone to the film that the truncated version only hinted at.

Without these three scenes, The Thing was essentially an action film, jumping from the point where the block of ice is stored away directly to the moment when the electric blanket is thrown over it. Film historians such as Leonard Maltin have long warned fans to avoid the edited version of The Thing, but up until the DVD release there has been little if any opportunity to view the film in its entirety.

To confuse matters further, some historians have argued that edits to The Thing were an urban myth. This is because the film was long said to have included a scene during its initial run in which the creature's victims were shown hanging upside down in the greenhouse. In fact, that scene was never shot. Since journalists over the years mistakenly claimed this scene was 'edited out' for the re-release, historians have countered that no such cuts were made for the re-release - oblivious to the fact that major chunks of the narrative were dropped for the sake of trimming the film's already lean running time.

Warners has also restored some minor 'lost' shots, including a location shot of Hendry's crew and dogsleds climbing across a ridge towards the buried saucer; and a half-minute of dialogue restored to the scene in which the scientists gather around an exhausted Dr. Carrington (who mentions his 'minor' skirmish between himself and Hendry).

Hope this is of interest to your readers - Robin Brunet

That was me. My local Alamo Drafthouse showed They Live in 4K.

Both my older brothers long spoke of seeing that scene on local TV when I was little. I never saw it of course and remember seeing this film on TV from the age of 5 in the NYC area. Yet, (now one has since died) both always spoke of this scene.
Truthfully, I think it's just excellent movie making, like writing, where the visual image is inserted by the view by strong description, or in this case dialog. Like people who to this day that they saw Rosemary's "baby". I even met someone that swore the original PSYCHO was in color stating "all that bright red blood on the tile".

With the new scream one, does this mean that this universal edition is out of print or will go out of print soon?

Maybe. Dazed and Confused (also from Universal) has stayed in print despite going to Criterion years ago. MGM has kept Mad Max, Escape from New York and others in print despite them having Scream versions. If the Scream is half of what it should be, the Universal won't matter at all, but might stay around in dump bins and cheap sections.

Universal will probably keep it in print as they have numerous standalone discs that Shout has done as Special Editions. Never impacted them before.

The same goes for Traffic and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, in spite of Criterion's superior release in all aspects. The Universal releases are widely available for cheap money. I don't think there's a single example of a popular title that went out of print just because a niche label released a superior release. And if there is one, I doubt that it went OOP because of this other release.

In fact, Universal decided to release their own release of The Game years after the Criterion release.

From what others say, that disc isn't a good disc and it doesn't matter if it goes out of print because it has no exclusive special features and nothing is special regarding the audio or video either.

With that said, I never was bothered by the colors or the cut commentary on that disc, however I can't wait to get the SF version.

So...

...the splitting-face "Thing"..
It was never two people merging, right?

Can Stuart chime in on this?

For thirty years, it was always reported as being one guys' face sliding down the center axis of the face - not two guys faces merging.

So it's annoying to me (and I'm FAR from alone) that the garbagequel, I mean prequel, had it be two guys merging.

Nope! It's not.

I actually had a good time with the prequel. It was nice to visit the Norwegian camp and see what went down there. And the director really tried to treat it as a forensic crime scene, connecting the dots to link it to Carpenter's.

And to think they actually did most of the effects practical at first, but opted for CGI instead. There is a petition to get the "practical" version released. I would love to see it.
