Why?
30 October 2019 | by TheEoghShowSee all my reviews

Sooo... someone decided to remake all of the most famous scenes from John Carpenter's "The Thing" with Pingu characters. Why? I have no idea. Honestly, the most interesting thing I got out of this was learning all these years later that the seal actually had a name (Robby).
