Sunday Cinema: John Carpenter’s ‘The Thing’

I love this film. This is the second adaptation of John W. Campbell’s very excellent short story “Who Goes There?“, after 1951’s The Thing from Another World.

Grab some popcorn and enjoy. Oh, and eat it quickly. There will be gore. And Wilford Brimley.

  1. Carpenter knows how to entertain. His movies may not be high art, but they are entertaining

    all the same.

    It’s very popular at the Antarctic research stations.
