    If it wasn't for some bad acting performances, this would have been a masterpiece.

    A sci-fi/horror extravaganza. I mean the blood test scene alone is better than most entire horror films.

    Classic horror movie, with great practical effects and without cheap jump scares.

    Didnt like this when I saw it many years ago. This time round, though I still don't find it that scary, it's a great movie.

    Carpenters best, after Halloween. A classic of the genre, and a remake that far exceeded the original.

    The Thing is a phenomenal film; it terrifies, mystifies and even repulses the audience at various times, but it's the combination of a perfectly chosen location and a very threatening type of monster--no surprise that it is one microscopic detail from ourselves--that makes such an immensely thrilling experience to watch.

    The opening scene begins with a bird's eye view of snowy Antarctic land and a sprinting Siberian husky which qualifies as one of the most visually stunning setups for a…

    While Aliens, a film I had no real interest in as a teenager getting into films, turned out to be a disappointment revisiting it, The Thing, the film I did love around that same age, is still incredible. Its not the special effects, though jaw dropping, that brings you back to the film, but not just the paranoid mood either; instead its the fact of how calm and casually paced the entire narrative is depicted which is the greatest virtue.…

    I was very much disappointed by The Thing. It's a film that relies far too heavily on plot, style and special effects to keep it moving, and not nearly enough on character, so none of the horror works. What little there is in terms of character is underwhelming; there are no female characters, which is depressing (there are literally no women in sight at all - Ridley Scott managed it in Alien and that film is set in space) and…
