Movie Of The Half: The Thing (1982)
Ok, so I haven’t done this in awhile… Of course we have been shut down for awhile, but still… I thought it would be fun to bring back those prominent bits of horror and sci-if that are so good, that they deserve extra mention!
With that said… And I think you guys will agree with me, The Thing (1982)… Is the movie of the half!
This movie which was remade by John Carpenter (Halloween), from the classic 1950’s film, The Thing From Another World (1951), tells the story of how a research outpost out in the middle of nowhere in Antarctica comes across a frozen Alien that seems to have destroyed a Norweigen research base in the area. Now the Alien is dead, but when some of it’s blood infects some of the people at the research base, they will have to figure out a way to stop the infection before they are all infected and bring the infection to the rest of the world!
This movie I think deserves it… It is eery, it has a great cast, including: Kurt Russell (Escape From L.A.) and Wilford Brimley (Cocoon), to name a few, and like the rest of the brilliant work that is John Carpenter… The music is brilliant!
