Margaret Thatcher’s old toilet, “rescued” by an elderly neighbour. From Nick Broomfield’s doc Tracking Down Maggie (1994)
Sundry Sundays: THE THING Poster by Wonderbros
sometimes less is more. i’m not usually much for these minimalist movie posters (at least not anymore), but John Carpenter’s paranoid classic is one of my favorite horror films, and methinks the “less is more” / “potentially civilization-ending alien being in dog’s clothing” approach that allows the story’s action to be so sparse and significant is really nicely appropriated for this design. as for the new movie… on the one hand i’m curious as to how it’ll straddle the line between prequel and remake, on the other hand i’m pretty sure it won’t bother to mediate that divide, and will just offer empty scares and answers to questions that were never intended to have any. blah. we’ll see.
