One of my favorite movies of all time is John Carpenter's 1982 sci-fi/horror film, The Thing. There is an excellent DVD release out now that contains the widescreen version of the film plus a ton of extras. I just recently found this wonderful web site devoted to the movie. It is an all-purpose clearing house of information about the movie and the concept and contains some really cool stuff like the full text of the original John W. Campbell story "Who Goes There?" that the film was based upon. You will also find information about the original 1950's version of the film. The site was created by someone named Vampire. We have to take our hats off to this person because it is exceptional! Check it out!
