Deep Analysis of Carpenter’s The Thing – Was Child’s Infected?

John Carpenter - The Thing

I enjoy watching The Thing every year, usually during the Summer. I am not sure why, but their is something satisfying about watching a movie set in the frigid cold, while it is 90 degrees out. I digress. I always enjoy the film and I have tried to figure out several times who and when people are actually infected in the film. I thought I had worked it out pretty well, but then I saw this video put together by Rob Ager that is a detailed study of hidden plot details and thematic use of costumes in The Thing. I can honestly say, I will never watch the movie the same way again.
