Wow! Simply wow! I never knew how much I enjoyed sci-fi movies until I started watching more of them. I thought that this was such an interesting and original concept (yes I know it is based on previous material). All of the acting is played very well and suits the tone of the movie to a T. Do I even need to talk about the special effects? They are amazing, so is the makeup, mad props to the artists and creators behind this.
The Thing is the gold standard for practical effects in horror films. Absolutely fantastic in every way.
Keith David's incredulity...should be a band name.
Here's the thing about The Thing: it has this thing; this feeling, this atmosphere that is so chilling (in a literal way, am I right, snow) and so dreadful. You know that anyone of your friends could be the thing, but that's the thing: they might not really be your friends. Another thing: everyone else suspects that you could be the thing, too.
I don't know what I'm doing with this review but here's the real thing: this film scared…
Parte del mes del terror.
Toda la producción es una
maravilla, desde las actuaciones, banda sonora, guión y efectos están realizado de una forma perfecta.
John Carpenter es un genio creado una atmósfera escalofriante y claustrofobia, que te dejara una sensación desoladora.
One of the best
**Halloween Film Fest 2016**
Having seen the original 1951 Thing From Another World a number of times, I decided I was far past due in seeing the 1982 remake. Having now done that, I can say that I can't believe it took me this long. The film is an absolute masterclass in suspense and horror.
The confined setting of the Antarctic base, the harshness of the elements, the overall darkness of each scene all serve to heighten the tension and paranoia the characters feel. Indeed, director John Carpenter manages to pass that same paranoia and dread onto the viewer right up until the film's ambiguous end.
Carpenter's masterpiece. The best film ever made.
24th horror movie in October 2016
Still an absolute classic and the effects are gruesomely fantastic even so many years later.
Maybe my favorite horror movie of all time. Very few other movies so effectively deliver a sense of paranoia and isolation. Not to mention the amazing special effects
Scavenger Hunt- July 2016
Task #8. A movie set in the mountains or in a cold place.
(Yeah. Had to get back to that one...)
The best movie monster in history.
