I am a HUGE fan of John Carpenter's The Thing. Not only is this one of the greatest horror movies of all time, it has the most stunning creature effects ever to come from a horror film. Casey Love, a very talented creature designer and mask maker, has recreated several of these amazing creatures depicted from the film...the Kennel Dog, Norris Worm, and the Blair Monster. All of these pieces have amazing likeness and detail. I believe he originally created all three of these for a private collector, then later decided to make them available in a very limited run. Now if only my pocket book was a little bigger I would add these to my collection in a heartbeat.
