i found a new favorite horror blog, the paradise of horror, and this week they have been doing a tribute to a movie by one of my favorite directors john carpenter. 'the thing' is thirty years old, which is unbelievable to me. but i do love this movie!
in a remote location in antartica, a group of scientists discover an alien life form that wants to take over...starting from inside any living thing. you can't tell when it takes over, until it blows out of your body in a grotesque way!
