The Thing – PINGU Edition AKA Thingu

the thing

      I HAVEN’T SEEN John Carpenter’s 80’s horror, The Thing, starring Kurt Russell and it is something I have on my to watch list. That doesn’t mean I, or you, can’t appreciate the genius of the claymation version involving penguins, starring the animated Pingu as protagonist.

  1. I’ll have to check this out! John Carpenter’s The Thing is on my top 10 list of movies. I own a copy which says a lot because I don’t really feel the need to own movies. But sometimes, just sometimes you need it at the ready and that movie is one of them.

  2. If you know the John Carpenter version then the Pingu film is a lot funnier. The Thing scared the bejesus out of me when I watched it as a teenager back in the 80s; excellent horror film using prosthetics, models and I think there was some stop-motion animation in there too. The Pingu version is a perfect short synopsis but it may have spoiled the original for you if you haven’t seen it yet!
