According to a faithful reader, I'm Ordinary Times's "least thoughtful writer." So I've got that going for me, which is nice.

    Great links!
    FS1 That movie is a hidden gem of a scary movie, plus it has George C. Scott and Brad Dourif!
    FS4 End up? (spoiler–scene is from first movie) but a good choice
    FS5 I agree–that’s one of my favorite scenes–also Ripley and Co. talking with Ash about the order. Alienis a haunted house story in space; it’s a movie I can always watch.Report

    So, The Thing (the greatest of all horror films, bar none) was based on a short story, Who Goes There, by John W. Campbell. This is well known. But, unknown was that was a cut-down version of a novel that never saw print. And that novel was discovered in the writer’s letters that have been stored at Harvard. And it is going to be released! Frozen Hell.Report

      @aaron-david I’ve always enjoyed that the kids in the original Halloween were watching the original production of The Thing on television, years before Carpenter was allowed to remake it.Report
