Episode 16 - The Thing

Recommended Posts

The year was 1982, and John Carpenter was white hot. Coming off a string of successes like Halloween and Escape From New York, Universal Studios approached him to direct a remake of Howard Hawkes’ The Thing From Another World. The result was The Thing, a landmark sci-fi horror film that set the bar for practical special effects, creature design, and tin-can tension. And everyone hated it.

 

 

This week, Tom is joined by Cracked’s David Christopher Bell and comedian David Huntsberger as they discuss the construction of the incredible special effects for The Thing, the lengths Carpenter went to create a constant feeling of paranoia in the film, and how fantastically little of a shit Wilford Brimley gave about the whole operation.
