The music for the epic horror classic The Thing (1982), directed by John Carpenter, was composed by the legendary Ennio Morricone. But not all of the music Morricone created for the The Thing was actually used in the film and sat dormant, until now.




Brilliant filmmaker Quentin Tarantino has made use of the previously unused music. Tarantino was working with Morricone to complete the soundtrack for his film The Hateful Eight, which is now in theaters, pressed for time, and still trying to find the perfect score for his film, he brought up the unused tracks and Morricone approved.  The track was recut and can be heard in the film, along with twenty-five minutes of other music. You will be able to pick up the soundtrack when it is released on deluxe vinyl early next year.
