Links: The Thing
The Thing is inarguably one of the best films ever to be set on the continent of Antarctica and appropriately enough, at bigdeadplace.com we find a page indexing reviews of The Thing by people who actually live in Antarctica and people who wish they lived in Antarctica. If you ever wondered how accurate a portrayal on Antarctic life the film is, this is the place you need to go.
Also from that page, you'll find the rules for both The Thing Board Game and The Thing Card Game. Which I imagine one would have lots of time to play while in Antarctica.
For an even more fun way to pass the time until Wednesday night's show, check out the Sounds page at John Carpenter's official website. It's packed with short sound clips from his films, including this one of Wilford Brimley describing either the Thing itself, or a tasty meal.
