During a special Q&A at the EW Capetown Film Festival screening of The Thing, director John Carpenter joked, ”I do know in the end who The Thing is, but I cannot tell you.”

”The movie tanked when it came out, by the way,” Carpenter reminded the audience. ”It was hated, hated by fans. I lost a job. People hated me. They thought I was this horrible, violent… and I was. But now here we are 31 years later and here you are filling a theater. It’s really great that you came out for this film.”
