* IdiotBall: People make a lot of mistakes throughout the movie, [[TropesAreTools which is really what drives a good part of the horror - people are fallible, and, under this kind of pressure, will inevitably screw up a lot]]. Special notice should go to Nauls at the end of the film, who walks towards a moving form ([[spoiler: The Blair-Thing pulling Garry's body]]) without telling [=MacReady=], who's literally 3 or so feet away from him at the time. [[spoiler: We never see Nauls again]]

Work titles are not displayed in bold.
Creator/JohnCarpenter's 1982 film '''''The Thing''''' is a much more faithful [[TheRemake adaptation]] of Creator/JohnWCampbell's novel ''Literature/WhoGoesThere'' than the original adaptation, Creator/HowardHawks' 1951 production ''Film/TheThingFromAnotherWorld''. It focuses on twelve men who are stuck in an Antarctic camp for the winter of 1982. After finding that the neighbouring Norwegian camp has been mysteriously destroyed, they realize that a deadly alien life form is on the loose. Most terrifying of all is the fact that this alien can [[VoluntaryShapeshifting change shape]], infecting a person on a molecular level and then relentlessly absorbing and duplicating their cells, imitating them from the inside out until there is nothing human left. Therefore, at least one among them may be the Thing.

Its popularity has caused the story to be continued in other media. In the 1990s, Creator/DarkHorseComics published a series of four comics continuing the film's story, called ''ComicBook/TheThingFromAnotherWorld''. [[VideoGame/TheThing A video game sequel]] was made in 2002. (Please go there for game related tropes.) Lastly, a [[Film/TheThing2011 similarly named prequel]] focusing on the Norwegian camp prior to the events of this film was released in 2011, starring Creator/MaryElizabethWinstead.

* EatBrainForMemories: A Thing can do this when it consumes a human being and converts it into a Thing. The new Thing has all of the memories of the original person.
