Halloween Special - The Thing

 Hello everyone, 

Season 2 might be over, but our coverage of great movies continues. In this special episode of Heroic Purgatory, John and Jason talk about John Carpenter's 1982 film, The Thing, and the various iterations that preceded it. Starting with John W. Campbell's novella, Who Goes There, and the Howard Hawks 1951 adaptation, The Thing from Another World, we delve into the many themes and interpretations contained inside this timeless story, focusing primarily on the Carpenter version. 

We hope you enjoy!
