Happy THE THING Day! The John Carpenter version, age 37, was released on June 25th, 1982. I can't believe it's closing in on 40 years old!
The Howard Hawks version will be 70 years old on April 6th, 2021. We'll need to celebrate its half-sesquicentenial-minus-five on that day. Canned food only, no sharing of drinks, everyone eat alone in their room. Keep Watching the Skies!!!
