Strange transformations are generated in the credits of John Carpenter´s 1982 film "The Thing". As the seconds go by, reading becomes more difficult due to the progressive mixing of the names to the point in which nothing is recognizable. The copy-paste of the credits from Christian Niby´s (or Howard Hawks´s?) 1951 film "The Thing From Another World and Matthijs van Heijningen´s 2011 remake of the prequel, have been infiltrated in this video generating glitches, that end up fusing the identities of the cast members of the three movies aforementioned. The suspicion syndrome surrounds us.
