We do this thread every year, so might as well make it official. My perennial favorites are still The Thing and The Shining. I always accepted the theory that MacReady gives Childs gasoline in the whiskey bottle instead of liquor since he was making molotov cocktails previously. He smiles at the end because he realizes Childs is actually the monster. The Shining is such a cerebral mind-fuck that it gets better each time I watch it. The book and its sequel book are lame though.
