“A ‘walking carrot’ (as one character calls it) that needs human or animal blood to survive . . .”

Hello Pulp Friends,

For day 6 of our classic horror marathine, we feature a cult horror/sci-fi movie: "THE THING FROM ANOTHER WORLD"!

The Thing from Another World
USA, 1951
directed by Christian Nyby
starring: Margaret Sheridan, Kenneth Tobey, Robert Cornthwaite, James Arness

The story begins as military airmen are dispatched to a remote Arctic research station where scientists have detected the crash of a spacecraft. An effort to retrieve the saucer-shaped vehicle fails, but the team returns to the station with the frozen body of its sole occupant.
When the extraterrestrial pilot is accidentally thawed, the crew, headed by a tough-talking pilot (Kenneth Tobey), grapples with a massive, chlorophyll-based humanoid (James Arness) thirsty for blood and in no mood for galactic diplomacy.

Hope you guys are enjoying these and the extra CHILLS (today a silly chill, I know) that go with :)
