EVENTHOR : also I just realized that there are two people in the movie called mac and windows.

blockmasterscott : 6:03 I love how Nauls and Childs are practically daring the last guy tied up to make the wrong move, you can see it in their faces!

TheOnePistol : The expression on Palmer's (Thing's) face right before his blood gets tested was funny. He's like "Welp, the gig is up."

Lionel Hutz : Windows had a 404 error

Prideace93 : I know you gentlemen have been through a lot, but I'd rather not spend the entire winter TIED TO THIS F$%^&* COUCH!!!!!!

Sir Polon of Adobar : this version of Windows is kinda slow...better upgrade mine

Evil Gopher : I’ve always hated how Childs tries to guilt trip MacReady by calling him a murderer. We all know full well that it was self defence; Clarke attacked him.

Jade Laurel Johnson : Wait a minute.. I never realized what I just realized in the first 30 seconds of this video.. They cut everyone with the same scalpel? Is that what I just saw? Before they test the blood samples? Like... He just wiped it on his knee. Dude... That's not how you disinfect a knife. Especially when you're dealing with some nightmare creature that mutates and copies people when you don't really know how it spreads.. And btw just to point it out, don't cut your finger. Cut a small section on the side of your wrist, the back of your hand or your arm. Finger cuts just suck; they get so dirty, they get in the way of doing things and they hurt way more. I don't recommend using the finger for anything. They all just opened themselves up to contamination by cutting open their fingers. Well. If they hadn't just shared a scalpel, because they'd definitely all be infected with the thing, not to mention other blood communicable diseases, and general infection like staph already.. I can't believe I never noticed that.. What a stupid thing to do..

S Bam : One of the best scenes ever in a horror movie. The tied to a sofa next to a monster is great and the "blood jump" - fully lighted, the entire cast watching, integral to the plot and with immediate consequences - is the very definition of how to do a proper jump scare. (Having something come out of the dark or a cat jumping out of a cupboard accompanied by a 100 decibel "bah bah!!" are 100% cheese).

Badlaxe Animations : The groaning when the Windows thing is being burned shows that part of him is still there... excellent work on Carpenter’s part 5:04 by the way

Peter Lohnes : Poor windows, frozen in fear cost him his life

H3Vtux : 3:02 who is screaming?

Dike Mickersen : My dad showed me this movie when I was 8 years old. It was right at the end of this very scene when he shut the TV off immediately regretted his decision to show me this because I was clearly traumatized. And then he sent me to bed to dream my sweet dreams. Thanks Dad. You made me the man I am today.

Da Weeeazzl : Poor windows. That was his "shut down" :(

ashdude55 : one of the most intense scenes ever

bagsikdangal : Windows got a virus at 3:42. Good thing Mac initiated a fire wall at 5:02 to purge Windows😂

Michael Patton : Keith David is such a great actor. “Get me outta here!” makes me laugh every time.

Michael Graves : Rob Bottin's special effects are after 36 years still perfect and also scary as hell.

GasMaskTrenchCoat : This would make an excellent telltale-style or until dawn-style game.

Richard Siebels : One cell of this alien virus can infect the whole body ... using the same scalpel and no gloves ...

frenio79 : 0:23 that's how real men sterilize their tools.

huverdoose : I remember seeing this when I was 7 and wondering if they had really just burned a man alive. Poor Windows.

Scion of Madness : I love how Palmer gives that little facial tick of resignation just before the shit hits the fan, like he knew his cover was probably about to be blown. You can just imagine all the little parts of him already starting to shift into attack mode knowing they're about to have to fight. Tentacles and teeth and other nasty things already starting to form inside him.

kevin weinz : Jesus, I wish Keith David would do some more serious dramatic roles... so underrated.

Borat : 4:35 when you see a spider run across the floor

EVENTHOR : 1:04 goddamn windows stop looking at me like that! XD

Jeremiah Akerman : I've seen this movie many times, but no matter what I always jump or get startled at 2:56.

Nik Xpert Gaming : Special effects makeup beats CGI every day of the week!

CEM CYBORG : HIV testing lol

ReFind : Whatever that thing was in that blood scared the crap out of me. I almost threw my phone away xD

NissanHyoryuLyfe : I like that one episode in Southpark where cartman does the same test with the other kids lol

Jonathan Melia : Windows was one of The Warriors....Palmer was in The Fog...

Sean O : Could you imagine being tied up and having that thing just come at you? Let the shitting begin.

Dana Ripley : As a kid I thought Window's death was pretty hilarious. The Thing took him out for dinner and a dance. lol!

Addie Hernandez : I know you gentleman have been through a lot, but when you find the time, I'd rather not spend the rest of this winter TIED TO THIS FUCKING COUCH!! Lol, best part.

Backwoods Films : Can't believe Macready held the dish in his hand when testing Childs and Garry after what happened with Palmer.  Also, you can tell Kurt Russell was expecting the reaction from Palmer's blood -- he squints just before the Thing actually leaps out of the dish.

Ryan Scherbluk : 2:55 scared the shot out of me lol

Michael Nix Jr. Family Members : Keith David quote: Get me outta here, cut me loose.

samdiego : Why does Windows always freeze when you need something important done?

easyscore : One of the greatest scenes in cinematic history regardless of genre

John Badillo Jr : 6:16-6:30 the funniest part in this whole movie

The Piper Report : That's a lovely fake hand at 2:49 lol. Great movie though. Truly great

Ed Zehoo : Windows always malfunctions. That's why I use a Mac

MikeyC : Poor Garry. He was So Traumatized and Angry at the end.

John Sanchez : Windows looks like a young macho man Randy Savage.

Cancer Itself185 : I always felt bad for Windows.

Brain rich : And the effects were done by a 22 year old?! What am I doing with my life?

thentust : Wondering why he let them sit so closed to each other?

MessengerOfHell : I still feel bad for Windows. He was a nice guy, too bad he froze and did one hell'a stupid thing.

Trey Oleson : doesn't palmers reaction imply a level of self awareness?
