Countdown to Halloween, Unsung Heroes of Horror Day 8: Blair in The Thing (1982)

 

Of course Kurt Russell’s MacReady is the man who wears the 24 inch sombrero at Outpost #31, and Child’s is pretty bad-ass too, but it’s Blair who’s essentially the lynchpin in the entire story. For it’s within Blair that the The Thing finds its most stable home, a host which builds an escape vehicle, and (aside from the ambiguous ending) is its last known imitation. So over the course of not only The Thing, but also its 2011 prequel, its The-Blair-Thing which faces down the human’s for the final showdown. Oh that and he has that awesome line “I’ll kill yuuuuuuuuuuuu“.
