"Quarantine Quandary"

John Carpenter's remake of The Thing absolutely terrified me, as a child. And as an adult, it still gives me the EXTREME heebie-jeebies! I love the idea of a gruff-voiced Keith David and silken-mained Kurt Russell going toe-to-toe with a shape-shifting, dog-absorbing alien on a remote Antarctic research base. But the whole thing is just so tense and... moist. It can be hard to watch, at points. I guess that's a big part of what makes it one of my favorites. Even if I can only stand to sit through it once a year....
