Bonus Tie-in 06 – The Thing (1982)

Here’s a short teaser of our brand new Patreon-exclusive episode of Uncut Gems Tie-ins, a monthly series where we take a classic movie and connect it to a film discussed on our main show. This month we are reaching the apex of our Shapeshifters and Body Snatchers marathon by talking about the 1982 The Thing, which celebrates the 40th anniversary of its original premiere. Over the course of our wonderful conversation you will hear us talk about the ingenious simplicity of this film, John Carpenter’s austere direction, Kurt Russell’s beard, environmental storytelling, the breadth of world-building this movie invites the viewer to invest in, Ennio Morricone’s terse score and much, much more!


Subscribe to our patreon at (3$/month) and support us by gaining access to other shows, such as other tie-ins, themed retrospectives and director marathons!

Hosts: Jakub Flasz, Nicolò Grasso & Randy Burrows
