I completely forgot to vote for Get Out, but if I could, I would vote for it a third time.

I couldn't find him. He must have gotten lost. Let's go ahead and watch the next movie and if he's not back by the end, we'll all go looking for him.
He probably made friends with a tesseract and is taking a tour of Dimension T right now.
You've only just met him, and you already know him so well. Roll the next movie!
The Thing is a 1982 American science fiction horror film directed by John Carpenter and written by Bill Lancaster. Based on the 1938 John W. Campbell Jr. novella Who Goes There?, it tells the story of a group of American researchers in Antarctica who encounter the eponymous "Thing", a parasitic extraterrestrial life-form that assimilates, then imitates other organisms. The group is overcome by paranoia and conflict as they learn that they can no longer trust each other and that any one of them could be the Thing.
Drac’s Notes: Quick thing - again I duplicated someone’s name in my tally, so there’s a #19 vote that I’m not sure whose it actually was. (I had it marked as Issun.) Even without it, though, this movie would still be at #2 by a landslide.
What I love about this scene is that all of that extremely impressive and probably expensive effects lead up to a complete dead-end.[the defibrillation scene]
John Carpenter has made a lot of great films but the Thing is one of his strongest. Its a clever, cynical film in which the mistrust tearing our heroes apart is sadly quite justified, as there's no easy answer to stopping the title threat. In terms of special effects, its one of the most accomplished film even after decades of film spectacle. The film keeps you guessing on first watch and on second you can ask "wait, when did he get infected?" Its a film where you must question intentions and just because you killed a regular human didn't mean you made the wrong move. Its a movie that bombed on release but thankfully its been reconsidered and is rightly considered a true classic.
Aw maaaaaaan! If I didn't know any better, I'd think we were in some sort of semi-ironic comic story!
At least it's a great movie to end on.
I'm disappointed. I think Alien 3 is the best one of the series.
You may have saved movie night, but now you're also banned from it.
Alien is a 1979 science fiction horror film directed by Ridley Scott and written by Dan O'Bannon. Based on a story by O'Bannon and Ronald Shusett, it follows the crew of the commercial space tug Nostromo, who encounter the eponymous Alien, an aggressive and deadly extraterrestrial set loose on the ship.
