Oh yes. You would think a story from the Thing’s perspective and explaining almost everything about it would just demystify the whole movie and take away some of the horror, but THE THINGS is absolutely terrifying and enhances the movie for me. I had no idea Carpenter decided it should be canon, that’s wonderful.
I disliked this story a lot, honestly. It felt like the author was trying way too hard to ascribe some deep meaning to the thing’s actions, but it just came off as self-indulgent and rambling.
I generally like stories from the monster’s POV, but they’re hard to get right, especially with big name monsters like the thing. With some monsters it’s generally much scarier to keep their motives and way of thinking completely incomprehensible to humans.
I’m glad you mentioned this bit, because God, that pissed me off. It really did come off as pure shock factor, and nothing else. It didn’t match the tone of the rest of the piece, and it just felt shoe-horned in.
I was really excited about this story when I saw the synopsis, but it just did nothing for me unfortunately.
Peacocks are rarely seen flying because that much majesty is hard to handle.
I need this.
