The Thing (1982) was a theatrical dud, perhaps because it had to compete against E.T. The Extraterrestrial. However, I found The Thing to be one of the most suspenseful films I have ever seen. The Thing was directed by John Carpenter, who is mostly known for his lower-budget horror films like “Halloween”, “Christine”, and “The Fog”. Carpenter directed some unusual films that were witty, unsual, and charming - films that would be unlikely to be made today like “Escape from New York”, “Starman”, “Big Trouble in Little China”, and “The Live”.
I'd watch this even without Marshawn making a guest appearance. With him? I'm double in. https://twitter.com/AGuyNamedNam/status/1486240728640471040?s=20
