Project Black and White: Redhead Edition

Okay! I have YOUR assignment, Cins!

Your black and white assignment is for: The Thing From Another World. This is the movie that John Carpenter remade (in a MUCH gorier version) in the early 1980's.

Your special instructions are: You MUST watch "seriously". No having friends over, etc, because the movie loses a lot of its tension. Try to watch it alone, in the dark, and then; ReVIEW, baby! I'm going to look around see if it's available to stream anywhere online. If not, it's on Netflix.

I LOVE this movie, and any more it is so overshadowed by its remake (which I also enjoy). Rumor is that Howard Hawkes actually did most of the direction. I have no idea if it's true, but the dialogue is wonderful, something Hawkes was known for. Also keep a look out for the Ghost Host and tell me where you spot him!

Sounds like Stac is serious about giving Cins nightmares.

I saw this movie when I was 14 and I loved it. I SO wanted to revisit this film! Just put it on the Netflix but if you find it streaming let me know so I can watch it sooner!
