Episode 25: The Thing

26 The Thing

Ahh, The Thing, a classic! We watched the first one from 1982 this time. This month we are finally getting in to some of the older movies that have influenced today’s filmmakers and we couldn’t pass up doing The Thing for an alien parasite theme!

Kurt Russell and that hair. A reason alone to watch this movie. Aside from that, the tension this movie builds is a great lesson in screenwriting, the beautiful set design and desolate location of the arctic are a thing to behold, and the acting is just enjoyable. All the actors are giving great performances here too. And all that’s not to even mention the great practical special effects to be seen in this film on top of the mystery laced so expertly throughout! Is he the thing? Is he? Is that? Are YOU?

Listen along with us as we review this film for the week! Directed by John Carpenter and starring Kurt Russell, Wilford Brimley, T. K. Carter, David Clennon, and Keith David (among others).

“A research team in Antarctica is hunted by a shape-shifting alien that assumes the appearance of its victims.”
