I have now installed an extension to limit time on various websites. Hope this keeps me on track a bit better.
autistictheon said: thers' a short story in the canon of the 1982 thing (called "the things" iirc) written from the thing's pov and its reaction to the humans is the same level of sheer visceral shocked disgusted horror that the humans react to it with. It was written by a third party for a writing contest and john carpenter liked it so much he made it canon
Oh yes. You would think a story from the Thing’s perspective and explaining almost everything about it would just demystify the whole movie and take away some of the horror, but THE THINGS is absolutely terrifying and enhances the movie for me. I had no idea Carpenter decided it should be canon, that’s wonderful.
