As in, the Thing from Another World, from the John Carpenter movie. Or the Howard Hawks movie, of which the former was a remake. Sure, you could argue that the Thing is really more of a vampire than a werewolf, as it did, especially in the original, have a taste for blood, but werewolves like the salty tang of blood, too, and besides, the Thing in Carpenter’s version turned itself into a wolf at one point, or a sled dog, which is closely related to a wolf. Whatever. This report was just too cool for me NOT to report on it. I’m sure you’ll all feel the same way.
Something—or some THING—is making a racket up in the Arctic Circle, specifically in the Igloolik, Nunavut area (Like that tells us anything. Not that many landmarks in the Arctic Circle, are there?). It’s been described as a “ping” or a “hum.” Whatever it is, its coming from under the sea, and it has, in true Stephen King DREAMCATCHER fashion, scared all the local wildlife away. Reports of the mysterious sound have been taken seriously enough that the Canadian military is investigating. They’d better come packing some heavy ordinance—does Canada even have any “heavy ordinance?”—because, I’m tellin’ ya, it’s The Thing! It has to be!
