Who Goes There?

October 14, 2011

SomeTHING awoke in our collective imagination when science fiction writer John W Campbell posed the question "Who Goes There?" in his 1938 novella about a chameleon space invader discovered beneath the Antarctic ice. The classic tale of intergalactic deception has paranoid themes and horrific imagery that continues to replicate on film: The Thing From Another World (1951), John Carpenter's The Thing (1982), and today's new The Thing prequel.

 

As a companion to the current NowPlayingPodcast.com donation drive movie review series, Stuart In LA performs an autopsy on this unique literary specimen to try and provide a satisfying answer to Campbell's eternal query: Who Goes There?
