KATY SAYS: There are movies about paranoia, there are movies about aliens. Then there is the movie that eclipses them all. An absolute masterpiece of special effects and building tension, John Carpenter’s The Thing is a masterclass in film making. An addendum: Do not watch the 2011 prequel. It is awful. Just absolutely awful.

Here’s a true story that happened on our first date!

Reader, I married her.
