Tightwad Terror Tuesday for 10-4-16 – The Best Free Movies on the Web

The Thing (1982)

The Thing

We’ll start this week off with a bona-fide classic; John Carpenter’s The Thing.  In case you don’t know, The Thing is about an Antarctic research team that comes into contact with a shape-shifting alien.  The alien assimilates the crew one-by-one until none of them is sure of who is human and who is alien.  Made in 1982, this tense study in paranoia is a remake of a 1951 movie, and it was also the subject of a remake/prequel itself in 2011.  This is the good version, though, with a cast of heavies that includes Kurt Russell, Keith David, Richard Dysart, Richard Masur, and Wilford Brimley.  If you haven’t seen The Thing, stop what you’re doing right now and go watch it here at Crackle.
