THE MILKSHAKE BOOM ring in the new year the only way we know how: with Kurt Russell, rampant paranoia, and graphic ultra-violence!  If you haven’t guessed it yet, Christine’s pick this week is the 1982 sci-fi classic ‘The Thing’ from the horror master himself John Carpenter!

We talk about the harsh critical reaction the film received upon release and the incredibly stiff competition it faced during the summer of 1982, which included ‘Poltergeist’, ‘Rocky III’, ‘Blade Runner’, and ‘E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial’ just to name a few!

We also give our spoiler-free thoughts on ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’, discuss the similarities between John Carpenter’s ‘The Thing’ and Quentin Tarantino’s latest effort ‘The Hateful Eight’; plus Jose breaks out his conspiracy chalkboard to detail his convoluted theory on who actually is ‘The Thing’!

Just in time for Halloween, THE MILKSHAKE BOOM bring you a monstrously spooky episode on ‘Creature Features’!

We define what ‘Creature Feature’ means to us, talk about some of our favorites including the old-school Universal monster movies, delve into the tropes of the genre, and answer once and for all if zombie movies can be considered ‘creature features’.
