ATTN L.A.! Creature Features In Burbank Pays Tribute To John Carpenter’s THE THING!

There’s something special about what us horror fans refer to as the “Magnolia crawl” in Burbank. Basically, there are several horror themed shops all within walking distance all across Magnolia Blvd. where Burbank begins. Everything from Dark Delicacies to Halloweentown to Blast From The Past, and Atomic Records or Bearded Lady Vintage.

There’s also Creature Features, which specializes in genre collectibles and soundtracks. But above all, they host monthly art showings paying tribute to the best in horror and science-fiction. This month’s inspiration? John Carpenter’s THE THING!

From April 8th through April 16th, and in honor of the 35th anniversary of THE THING, a group of over 100 artists have contributed various interpretations inspired by Carpenter’s THE THING, as well as a few based on the original 1951 THING FROM ANOTHER WORLD.

If you’re local, we strongly recommend heading down to Creature Features, located at 2904 W. Magnolia Blvd. Burbank, CA 91506, to see these pieces in person for yourself. For now, here’s a sample of some of what you’ll find there!
