Monster Madness: The Thing

John Carpenter's The Thing was disregarded upon release, a critical and box-office dud. But in time, it has become recognized for what it is: a terrific, scary, gross, weird, and wonderful piece of monster-movie making.  It's not perfect, but it's a perfect start for Double Exposure's Monster Madness series.

In the episode, Courtney and Chris discuss the gross-out nature of The Thing's creature effects, Carpenter's decision to make the film with an all-male cast, and whether The Thing has any relevance for today's moment in time
