Ambitious but not entirely successful take on 'The Thing'
Up to this point, SUSPENSE writers John C. Alsedek & Dana Perry-Hayes had stuck to short stories for their adaptations. However, with this episode they tackle a novella- to mixed results. John Campbell's 'Who Goes There?' has been adapted to the big screen (as 'The Thing') by Howard Hawks and John Carpenter with great success- but those were 90 minute-plus films. Here, Alsedek & Perry-Hayes try to do the same thing in less than half the time; while it's an enjoyable enough episode on its own merits, it does end up feel very rushed throughout. The acting is steady, with Steve Moulton (best known for 'Sharknado') making the biggest impression as McReady.
