Gobbledygeek episode 71, “Things to Do in Antarctica When You’re Dead,” is available for listening or download right here.
The second installment of Gobbledyween 2011, John Carpenter’s The Thing, gets discussed just as its new prequel/remake is hitting theaters. The boys discuss the film’s paranoia, claustrophobia, and intensity, as well as why Paul considers it possibly the greatest horror film ever made. Also mentioned are the film’s initially poor reception and Christian Nyby/Howard Hawks’ original The Thing from Another World. Plus: Paul talks concerts, AJ talks Moneyball, and they both review 50/50.
Next: Gobbledyween week three rolls along with a discussion of George A. Romero’s Dawn of the Dead.
