Episode 50 – The Thing (Short Rounds)

or: Can I Borrow Your Flamethrower?


October 31st can only mean one thing… time for a spooky special Short Rounds episode! Jake pays penance for his coldest War Crime – John Carpenter’s The Thing. Do the guys see the human in this film, or is it as cold and alien as creepy crawly head-spider? Grab a flamethrower and handful of dynamite, because there’s a 75% chance at least one of us has been infected by the intruder organism!
