John Carpenter’s remake of The Thing From Another World is released in theaters. The film achieved only mediocre status at the box office, bringing in $19.6 million. Since that time, the film starring Kurt Russell, has been re-evaluated by critics time and time again and is now considered one of the greatest Horror films of all time. Garnering quite a cult status for sure!
Hey there boils and ghouls!
My love of horror films came on a dark and stormy night....
....Truthfully, it probably happened in 1980-something during a sunny day when I was 5 or 6. That movie was JAWS. I had never been so terrified to go swimming and I live in a land-locked state! I have been a Horror Hound ever since.
Having seen hundreds of films, some good and some downright dreadful, my love for horror cinema has grown stronger than ever! A couple of my favorite directors are Lucio Fulci and John Carpenter.
Contributing here at T.H.S and being able to work with these other folks will be a treat I look forward to. I will share secrets after a few drinks and I also enjoy long romantic walks in dimly-lit cemeteries.
My fave top 5 films are:
1)Dawn Of The Dead (Original)
2)The Thing (Carpenter's Remake)
5)Friday the 13th pt IV: The Final Chapter
