TT20: The Thing From Another World

Reports are now coming in of a strange crash landing of a metallic spacecraft deep inside the Arctic ice. Hungry for blood, its otherworldly pilot stalks the barren tundra, seemingly unstoppable. Then, a lone beacon penetrates the harsh weather. Better than the Emergency Broadcast System, it’s our commentary for the 1951 sci-fi spine-chiller, The Thing From Another World. This attention signal is followed by official information, including film background, wine-fueled tangents, sexual innuendos galore, and the horror-driven wit that is Matt and Jason. Our test concludes with chatter on recent DVD viewings and what’s coming up next. Watch the skies, Terror Fiends!

  1. Another great episode! One of my favorite films too. Scotty was such a great character and the Hawks style of directing fit this wonderfully.

  2. I couldn’t agree more, TJ! Hawks was so well suited to the suspense/thriller genre and managed to interject well-wrought tension into most of his “non-genre” work, but never did he so deftly ratchet up the thrills as with this film. Super-carrots brought out the best in him, I guess! We have some more Thing action coming your way very soon…
