The Thing Remade, Starring G.I. Joe Action Figures

When I say "remade," I mean remade with a new but similar script, not recreated. The "plot" of this short follows the very basics of The Thing's plot, but only in broadest outline. Don't expect shot-for-shot fidelity, or, like me, you'll start wondering where the hell the Swedes are, and when the dog is going to start acting funny.

And why MacReady is suddenly a redhead.

Starts off a mite slow, and the music just gets more and more annoying (you might want to turn it down after a minute), but it is a lot of fun to look at. Great sets. And the monster actually looks kinda scary, too.


Thanks to Dr. Reo Symes.
