I have just finished the 1982 film "The Thing" and it left me feeling very confused.
How many "Things" were there in the film? As far as I understand it the filmmakers tried to explain it as a virus that spreads but that doesn't make sense as it also seems to be a living organism. In that case does that mean every person imitated by the thing was a self-reproduced creature of the same species.
Or was it the same creature throughout the film? I don't understand this either as it is killed multiple times.
