School's out for summer, but Mark rewinds to '80s Antarctica with cinephile and camera expert Joe Brady for the 40th anniversary of John Carpenter's chilling film The Thing! It was released in theaters on June 25, 1982 to harsh criticism, but those critics were obviously possessed by aliens. Joe and Mark rave about Rob Bottin's insane practical special effects, Dean Cundey's cinematography, the memorable and creative title sequence, and the connection to Alien. Save us, Kurt Russell!
