Growing up, horror films were the celluloid equivalent of an initiation ritual for us young kids. After seeing so many nightmarish flicks that took advantage of teenager stupidity, nakedness and doomed cheerleaders, there was very little that could actually frighten us properly.

And then we saw John Carpenter’s The Thing, a suspenseful film that taught us to never trust husky dogs and always check our friends blood with heated pieces of wire.

But imagine how much scarier that film could be, if it was re-enacted in claymation with children’s TV show icon, Pingu the penguin. Hit the link to see a disturbing, if worryingly cute adaptation of the classic horror film.
