ABOUT

Outpost #31 was founded by Todd Cameron in October 2001. We have been the #1 fan site and resource for the film since our launch, and offered fans the opportunity to view the film on 35mm at our annual THING-FEST event which ran from 2001 to 2008. We had actor Thomas G. Waites (Windows) attend the final event.

 

In the summer of 2003 Todd Cameron and the late Steve Crawford ventured up to the remote filming location in Stewart, British Columbia, Canada and found remains of the Outpost #31 camp set and the wreckage of the Norwegian helicopter. Steve also contributed greatly to many areas including the Maps, Timeline, and FAQ’s. Sadly, Steve passed away in November 2008 and he is missed by many. 

 

Tony Chefles ran the website from 2010 through 2016, setting up excellent interviews, fully covering the prequel, as well as ongoing updates.

 

In June 2017 Todd completely re-built the Outpost #31 site for the film's 35th Anniversary and he runs the social media accounts. In the summer of 2021 Todd has two books publishing; the R.J. MacReady backstory novel Snowblind, and Fragments of the Outpost, an anthology of twelve short stories that weave the film together seamlessly.
