Ep 44 - The Thing w/ Paul from The Countdown Podcast

Usually the definition of a sophisticated Australian is a New Zealander, but not in this case when we had the amazingly eloquent Paul from the Countdown Podcast join us and raise the standards of our show. As he was our dearly welcomed guest, we allowed him to pick the movie and he went with one of his all time favourite films, John Carpenter's The Thing, from 1982. And he crushed it!

Some highlights included:

What line would NOT work as a pick up line? What could modern horror learn from this film? How would you recast this movie with millenials? And what character just clearly needs to get laid?
