Join me for a sight unseen commentary for the prequel to my favorite horror movie, The Thing (1982). Since this is not that movie (I already did that with the Doctor from Speakeasy), you might imagine that I would be somewhat sour on this one. But you would be wrong! I give this movie every chance and only later sour on it and regret ever turning it on!
Seriously, tho, I wonder about the director, the writer, the story, the leads, key decisions about the art direction, why there weren’t any corndogs at Craft Services… everything. But mostly I blame the director.
Start the commentary after the logos, before the Universal title card, on the countdown.
