We recently covered shirt designs from Cavity Colors based on David Cronenberg's The Fly and Videodrome. Now they are back with a brand new shirt and print to be released on April 22nd that pays homage to another legendary horror director's film: John Carpenter's The Thing.Here's what Aaron Crawford had to say about his latest creation, titled The Thing Inside:

"John Carpenter's THE THING was one of the first monster movies I watched as a kid, and the special effects / storyline blew my little mind. The idea of a shapeshifting alien creature getting inside your body and becoming YOU, just to re-populate its own species without being exposed really sorta fascinated me. On top of that, the feeling of despair being isolated in an Antarctic freeze with no escape really toys with your mind.

The special effects by Rob Bottin are also some of the best you can witness with your 20 eyes. Gooeye dripping monster heads with spider legs, deformed dogs with tentacles ripping out of them, and a chest with giant teeth. What's not to love about this movie!

Here is my tribute to one of the best monster / creature designs ever, the NORRIS spider monster! *this is just one of many THE THING tribute designs we plan to come out with."

The new shirt and print will be available for pre-order starting on Tuesday, April 22nd at 4:00pm Eastern. To learn more or pick this up next week, visit:
