Horror Movie News: Recent interview with cast of 1982’s The Thing

ATMOSfx! Woo!

Stories and observations from a few of the great cast members of the 1982 cult classic.

In 2016, a few of the cast members from The Thing (1982) sat down to reminisce about their frozen days along the Alaskan/Canadian border. They cover everything from casting for the movie to their reactions after its release. For anyone who’s a fan of the 1982 cult classic (and after our glowing review I’m assuming that’s all of you), this little documentary is a charming peek into the work behind The Thing and how much fun it was to be a part of.

For the 51-minute film, interviewers talked to…

  • Wilford Brimley (Dr. Blair)
  • Richard Masur (Clark)
  • Keith David (Childs)
  • David Clennon (Palmer)
  • Peter Maloney (George Bennings)
  • Joel Polis (Fuchs)
  • Thomas G. Waites (“Windows”)

The sound cuts out for a few seconds at the beginning, but just wait it out and all is well.
