The Thing (1982)

 Rated R once again for just a scant bit of swearing.

With Next 100 Project podcast #80, we travel way down south to Antarctica and explore the freaky alien happenings with Kurt Russell and his nondescript cohorts. John Carpenter’s lauded sci-fi/horror mash-up is an effective freak-out complete with F/X and makeup gross-outs to delight fans of gore.
