The Thing

An Uncanny Hour - Episode Seven
Welcome to the first episode of Series 2 of our Patreon exclusive podcast documentary series, An Uncanny Hour hosted by Robin Ince.

We start series two with a two parter looking at John Carpenter’s Apocalypse Trilogy. In part one we focus exclusively on one of Carpenter’s most loved films, the sci-fi horror The Thing. The film was a box office failure but became a cult classic, and huge success, on home video.

Robin Ince talks about the film with fans of The Thing such as:

• Comedian Stewart Lee who ranks The Thing as one of his favourite films of all time.
• Co-Creator of Inside No. 9 and The League of Gentlemen Reece Shearsmith
• Writer and podcaster Sarah Morgan
• Theoretical Astrophysicist Dr Christine Corbett Moran who first saw the thing when based at the South Pole
• Epidemiologist and former member of a horror soundtrack synth band Dr Suzi Gage
• Geneticist and regular scientific consultant on science fiction films, Dr Adam Rutherford
• Author and comic book legend Alan Moore
