    A horrific masterwork that travels the themes of trust, identity and delivers some of the most sickening body horror imaginable.

    When it comes to horror, this movie is sheer perfection.

    Now if you don't mind, I don't plan to spend all winter, tied to this f***ing couch!

    Probably the pinnacle of 80s suspense/gross-out/action/comedy.

    Bleak and despairing, to a tee.

    One of the greatest horror movies ever made, John Carpenter at his very best. The sense of dread and foreboding builds and builds until the reveal of the title character, which is brilliantly rendered. And that ending is just ingenius. Carpenter is the king of telling the maximum with the minimum, his films have no loose weight at all.

    A perfect example of why there really shouldn't be the current over-reliance on CG effects and music cue jump-scares in modern cinema. The Thing is pretty much perfect and, with the exception of the computer chess scene near the beginning, is almost ageless. The practical effects work is still outstanding. This sits high among the pinnacle of the genre.

    The effects created in this film flashes a big middle finger to the now common use of cgi. It's still mind blowing even today. This is a must see classic of John Carpenter, in this claustrophobic, paranoid edge of your seat thrill ride. What's so great aboutit is the uncertainty of when the monster will attack, but also the crumbling trust in the human characters who are uncertain of each others intentions, and who is host to The Thing. Kurt Russell and Wilford Brimley stand out in this sci-fi masterpiece..

    In possibly the best remake of all time, John Carpenter takes a good 50s B movie classic and makes it a great modern horror film that is not as overshadowed by its special effects as most people say.

    Gyerekkorom első horrorfilmje volt anno. Talán 9-10 éves lehettem, amikor egyedül maradtam otthon éjszakára, és "szerencsémre" pont pár nappal előtte kaptam egy plüss husky kutyát ajándékba, azt ölelgettem, miközben teljesen egyedül néztem eme alkotást. A plüss az első 20 perc után a szekrény mélyén kötött ki, én pedig végigrágtam majd' mind a 20 körmömet. Persze, hogy nagy kedvenc azóta is. Bár ma már értem is, hogy miről szól.
