My friends and I had a viewing party of the Thing a few weeks ago and I was reminded once again just how much I love John Carpenter’s films. No doubt, the Thing is ten plus stars and the Morricone soundtrack is definitely worth owning, but I did kind of wish that Carpenter soundtracked it himself. And that made me go back and listen to this classic. This would still be worth owning if it was only the snippets of dialog included here. Thankfully, we get much more than that. Oh, so much more.
