Ep. 037 – TFFP: John Carpenter’s The Thing (1982)

The Thing (1982)In this episode of The Forgotten Flix Podcast, we’re asking “Who goes there?” in John Carpenter’s The Thing (1982)!

Directed by John Carpenter and starring Kurt Russell, Keith David, Wilford Brimley .

Synopsis: A group of men working at an outpost in the Antartic cross paths with an alien organism capable of assimilating and creating a perfect genetic copy of any one it comes in contact with.

As the paranoia sets in, the men begin to turn on each other as they try and determine who really is… The Thing!
