The Thing, Redux

Phil Bolton brings us this set of props based on the original 1951 production of "The Thing From Another World". The collection of papers from Dr. Carrington is a perfect companion piece to one of the surviving alien pods.

Awww, you're too kind sir. Thanks.

John Carpenter's version always seems to get the most attention, but I've always preferred the original. Its hard to beat just for sheer creepiness and great dialogue. It really is one of my favorite films.

I'll never forget that EERIE scene when they put a stethescope to the pod and describe the "soft cray as like a child"
