Holiday Horrors: Rankin and Bass’ THE THING

Post Thumb:


Holiday Horrors: Rankin and Bass' THE THINGThousands of years ago it crashed, and this thing… gets thrown out, or crawls out, and it ends up freezing in the ice. Chariots of the Gods, man. They practically own the North Pole. I mean, they taught the elves everything they know.

Out of all the mash-ups we’ve seen on the Internet, I can finally say that we have a new favorite.

YouTuber Brad Rodriguez has taken the time to create a simply brilliant combination of John Carpenter’s classic take on The Thing and the old Rankin and Bass holiday favorite Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. We applaud you, Mr. Rodriguez! Thank you for this wondrous sliver of tinsel laden terror! That being said…

I know you gentlemen have been through a lot, but when you find the time, I’d rather not spend the rest of this winter TIED TO THIS FUCKING SLEIGH!

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    Wonderful. Some of these things (I think they call them mash-ups) really suck but this was great. The matryoshka doll was a stroke of genius.
