“You will give the people of Earth an ideal to strive towards. They will race behind you, they will stumble, they will fall. But in time, they will join you in the sun, Kal. In time, you will help them accomplish wonders.” Mail call! I got Man of Steel 4K.
#Halloween--John Carpenter's The Thing (1982) is easily one of, if not the greatest modern horror film! It's based on a 1951 Howard Hawks production, The Thing from Another World, which in turn is based on the 1938 novel, Who Goes There?, by John W. Campbell. The films/book explores what alien life might really look like -- and no, there are no cute cuddly E.T. creatures in this film! In Carpenter's version the creature is a shapeshifting monstrosity that is hell bent on infecting and replacing every organism it encounters. .
The original Thing art is courtesy of the great Drew Struzan and is hugely collectible. This particular format, the tall/narrow US insert poster, is especially rare as they were printed in much lower numbers than the 1-sheet and the thick cardstock its printed on is easily damaged. There are few copies floating around that are in this nice of shape! Collectors tip: Beware of the "minty white" reprints of this Thing insert poster -- this is 100% guaranteed original!

The Thing (1982)

Despite being a pretty gory film, it's also claustrophobic and full of paranoia, especially at the end where we're left wondering if either of the two survivors are The Thing as Ennio Morricone's unsettling soundtrack ominously finishes the movie off. Interestingly this is the first film by John Carpenter where he didn't score the music himself.

The Thing (1982)

There are no women in the film apart from the chess computer voiced by #JohnCarpenter's wife.

The Thing (1982)

Since #Halloween is fast approaching I'll be keeping things mostly towards the creepy and the gory. This film has a bit of both but is more towards the gory side of things.

This movie opened on the same day as Bladerunner (up next) and similarly wasn't very well received at first. I think it's great fun.

John Carpenter made some of the most entertaining films of the 80s and he claims this is his personal favourite of them all.

#UnforgettablePerformances: #KurtRussell in #EscapefromNewYork. Nowadays, many may not remember this #JohnCarpenter's less successful movie. However, no one can argue that Russell's #SnakePlissken remains a very strong point of the movie, even coming as far as becoming an icon of action movies from the 80s.
