On the 9th episode of the special episode series called Breaking It Apart, I’m joined by Weng’s Chop’s Tony Strauss and Troy Howarth, the author of Assault On The System: The Nonconformist Cinema of John Carpenter to talk about the 1982 classic The Thing. This influential horror classic wasn’t a hit when it was released, but has gone on to be considered one of the ultimate films when it comes to paranoia, suspense and horrific practical effects.
As always, SPOILER ALERT for The Thing and the movies we discuss!
Troy Howarth’s book Assualt on the System: The Nonconformist Cinema of John Carpenter is available on Amazon at https://www.amazon.com/s?k=assault+on+the+system+the+nonconformist+cinema+of+john+carpenter&i=stripbooks&fbclid=IwAR2yNpr5yCOFDk-3n_K0fP6ncpwN1ULj-wB3LN9qFvxLOsCuWNUeXB4FEHY&ref=nb_sb_noss
