The Thing (I) (2011)
- In the blood testing scene in The Thing (1982), Palmer is revealed to be The Thing. During the sequence, he initially behaved normally. But while MacReady and Garry were briefly arguing just when MacReady is about to test Palmer's blood, Palmer has a stoic facial expression and is quiet. Once his blood comes to life, he starts morphing into a grotesque monstrosity.
- In this film, Griggs and Juliette behaved similarly to Palmer after they became The Thing. During the scene where Olav and Griggs are leaving the camp for Olav to receive medical treatment after being infected, Griggs was behaving normally while Olav kept coughing and wheezing. However, while on the helicopter, Griggs has this stoic facial expression and becomes quiet. When Olav tries to get a response from him, Griggs morphs into a grotesque monstrosity, attacks Olav, and causes the helicopter to crash. In another scene, Kate was forming a plan to try to keep the camp safe from the increasing threat of The Thing, and Juliette volunteers to help her. They go into a storage room where the keys to the crew's snowcats are stored. While Kate had her back to her, Juliette, who initially behaved normally, has a stoic expression on her face and is quiet. Suddenly, she morphs into a grotesque monstrosity with the intention of assimilating Kate.
- Furthermore, both the helicopter disaster scene in this film and the blood testing scene in The Thing (1982) momentarily showed Olav and Garry, respectively, as red herrings of being The Thing.
