13. "Anybody touches me, and we go" - The Thing (1982)
New year. New Tropes. The Trope Stormers return with their first instalment of 2021 and it's a barnstorming opener.

Will they be left in the frozen desolates wastes of Dystropia by the end? Or will they escape to the hallowed plains of Utropia? Turn on. Tune in. Trope Storm
