In Memoriam

With THE THING in its 30th anniversary year, it is unavoidable that we lose some of the incredibly talented people who worked on the film.  Here are a few to be remembered.  Respects to anyone else we may have missed who worked on the film and are no longer with us.  Let us hope this page need not have to be updated too regularly...
