Welcome to our 4th Annual Holiday Spooktacular. This year, Nate and Ryan discuss John Carpenter’s The Thing, a 1982 horror flop that has become a bona fide classic. Listen as they discuss what has made The Thing into such a beloved film and how it has aged over the past 35 years. This is also Can We Still Be Friends first John Carpenter movie, and we were glad to have the chance to celebrate another master filmmaker.
Is The Thing one of your go-to horror movies? What are your thoughts on it? Where does it rank among horror movies? Where does it rank among Kurt Russel movies? How long was it before you slept soundly after that stomach bit off those hands? Let us know!
