The Thing, by Anne Billson (British Film Institute, 1997)

A critical discussion of the 1982 John Carpenter remake, based on the short story Who Goes There?  Billson supports the film’s then-still growing reputation, contextualises it to SF and horror cinema of the late 70s/early 80s, and plays with a Freudian reading. Lots of fun throughout.

My own books are here, if that’s your thing. Newest is noir thriller East of England.
