John Carpenter’s The Thing at 35: Cast and crew talk about the film

To celebrate the 35th anniversary of John Carpenter’s The Thing on 25th June, Syfy Wire gathered Keith David, who played Childs; Larry J. Franco, the associate producer and first assistant director; and director of photography Dean Cundey, to talk about film and the special effects created by Rob Bottin.

Always great to hear the cast and crew talk about my all time favourite film.

Arrow Video have also started work on their 4K restoration of the film.

The Thing (also known as John Carpenter’s The Thing) is a 1982 American science-fiction horror film directed by John Carpenter, written by Bill Lancaster, and starring Kurt Russell. The film’s title refers to its primary antagonist: a parasitic extraterrestrial life form that assimilates other organisms and in turn imitates them. The Thing infiltrates an Antarctic research station, taking the appearance of the researchers that it absorbs, and paranoia develops within the group.
