42. John Carpenter's The Thing (1982) with Drew Meyer

John Carpenter's The Thing is a creepy enough movie on its own, but add in the context of 2020's pandemic situation and a movie where an undetectable threat infiltrates an isolated science base suddenly gets a lot creepier. Rafe is joined by Who & Company's Drew Meyer to talk about the impact of context, why this movie almost ruined the careers of those involved, the influence of Agatha Christie on genre films, and more!
