That's the thing, I haven't taken it out it's original shrink wrapping so haven't watched it. But seeing as it's worth a bit of money now I don't really wanna unwrap it .

Might have to buy it again on standard edition Blu.

Yeah, I wasn't sure if maybe you had another copy.
Keep it in the shrinkwrap!

Default Not everyone appreciates this film!

I just had an argument with an older person (60-ish) who belittled Carpenter's The Thing as - and I'm quoting - "a cheap knock off of The Thing from another World". My initial reaction was that I should immediately murder him, but I'm not cut-out for a life inside. So I argued the merits of the film, how it was more faithful to the original short story, how it created a sense of dread and paranoia that so many horror films miss, that it is one of the golden standards of practical effects, that it is generally considered one of the best horror films of all time, etc. etc.

All to no avail, as he remained unconvinced and call it "stupid". Should I kill this person?
