The Thing (1982) movie review from the Salty Nerds have them going gay over Kurt Russell - and there's no coming back from that!  

A remake of the 1951 original The Thing From Another World, this interpretation from John Carpenter is far more faithful to the original source material - the short story from John W. Campbell Jr. called "Who Goes There?"  At a remote Antarctic research station, the group stationed there runs into a shape-shifting alien menace.  As paranoia spreads throughout the team, they quickly discover that their teammates are just as dangerous as this Thing from another world!  Who's human?  Who's The Thing?  Who will survive?  

Widely praised as John Carpenter's masterpiece of horror cinema, The Thing flopped at the box office when it was initially released, but has gone on to become a classic film praised by critics and fans alike.  What is your The Thing movie review?  Did you love it?  Hate it?  Do you speak smergdorf?  Let us know on our Discord server here:
