Corinne and Tim try to figure out who's who as they watch John Carpenter's version of The Thing from 1982. Listen in as we speculate on why the film failed critically and commercially during the busy summer of '82, comment on the film's themes of isolation and paranoia, and discuss the lack of women in the cast. Warning: Contains explicit language, spoilers, and some unorthodox chess strategy.
