The Thing

Corrected entry: In a deleted scene, when they burn Karl, it is obvious that the stuntman is wearing a fake "Karl" mask.

Correction: Which is one of the reasons they deleted the scene. It's like saying one of the actors flubbed their lines in an unused take.

Corrected entry: I can just barely understand the logic behind an Antarctic research station having a small number of handguns and at least one assault rifle. But flamethrowers and grenades? No reason, other than to drive the plot.

Correction: Should there be a loss of power, flamethrowers and thermite grenades would be useful for melting ice and starting fires for warmth. And it actually makes a lot of sense to have weapons in 1982, it was still the Cold War and the Soviets had a large presence there.
