1982..... Carpenter agreed to shoot a happy ending and shot a scene in which MacReady (Kurt)has been rescued and administered a blood test, proving that he is still human. The Thing had two test screenings, but Carpenter did not use the sequence in either of them, as the director felt that the film worked better with its eventual nihilistic conclusion. The alternate ending with MacReady definitively proven to be human has yet to be released.
