This post is long overdue. I’m already closing in on finishing the whiteboard after this one. This was my Halloween installment this year, John Carpenter’s The Thing (movie poster). So, yeah. Back-to-back Carpenter. Bet you didn’t see that coming. The Thing is such a great, tight character drama with some seriously gross special effects. AND Wilford Brimley sans mustache! What could be better! This one was surprisingly difficult to nail down because of the abstract nature of the original painting. I should have known better, it is Drew Struzan after all.
