Initially lambasted by critics, John Carpenter’s The Thing (1982) was a brilliant adaptation of John W. Campbell’s novella Who Goes There?. The film tells the story of a dozen men in Antarctica who are infiltrated by an alien shapeshifter.
Interviews include authors John Kenneth Muir (The Films of John Carpenter), Jez Connelly (Devil’s Advocates: The Thing), actors Joel Polis (Fuchs), Thomas G. Waites (Windows), and cinematographer Dean Cundey.
