Hope you enjoyed the post, everyone. I hope to see you all with fresh content and new movie reviews very soon! Thanks for your patience and for checking into “The Den!”
I actually didn’t know that it was based on a novella. Aahh and this is my favourite movie of all time. Had a conversation w my girl yday and she hasn’t seen it yet!!!! Now wtf, I have to re-educate this girl. I actually had a small heart attack when she said it but on the good side, this means I will have to re-watch it. Ah bliss. 🙂
The Thing is such an great movie to introduce people too, isn’t it? I am always down for a re-watch of it anytime 🙂
As far as the novella is concerned, Carpenter’s version is much closer to the source material than Hawks’ version (I still love the first one, though). I actually found a audio-book of it and put it on my iPod. Kinda creepy and still holds up really well.
Thanks for stopping by!
IT IS! 😀 Glad you liked the post. Thanks for checking in!
