The Thing about The Thing about The Thing

A few weeks back I re-watched the 1982 The Thing for the dozenth(?) hundredth(?) time.

I’m talking about classic sci-fi/horror, where the men are real-men who use large caliber weapons and flame throwers to send the beasts of hell back from where they came.
