    It used to surprise me to hear people say that this was their favorite Carpenter film but I like it more and more each time I see it.

    me acordé de alien --aunque es posterior a alien-- y también de aquel episodio de los x-files en donde hay un virus que se le mete a todos y los hace desconfiar uno de otros. el encierro es cabrón, y más cuando se le combina con el horror del cuerpo, de la modificación y la invasión. el virus mental es tan potente y tan destructivo como el virus físico.

    Right out of the bat I am going to say that I am not exactly a big fan of Horror Movies. I don't enjoy being uncomfortably scared out of my seat by surprise jump scares and I prefer not being scarred for a couple of days. That being said, I fucking loved The Thing.

    The Thing is a classic 1980's horror movie about a group of American Antarctic scientists who run across an extra-terrestrial Alien with the ability to imitate…

    Watched this for the twelfth episode of The Love/Hate Podcast. On the show, myself and my partner are looking at the 52 top-rated horror movies of all time (according to Rotten Tomatoes).

    This movie was not included on the list, and was watched in place of Ringu.

    A winner for us both (and one of Brendan's favourite movies of all time), The Thing delivers gore, fun, and scares, and is one not to be missed. Find us on iTunes, at www.barleydoeshorror.com, or by going to:

    Very cult film. A tad slow, but an overall solid and simple horror movie.

    Carpenter allows his characters to wander off alone and come back with silly grins on their faces, until we've lost count of who may have been infected, and who hasn't. That takes the fun away. No, Ebert, no. El terror en The Thing está en la paranoia y el sabernos superados por algo que es más capaz que nosotros. Está, tal vez, desde que le disparan al científico noruego después de que lo vemos brutalmente disparar a un perro desde…

    The monster/slasher horror movies schedule are always the same. A bunch of stuck people in somewhere, with a monster or psycho, killing one by one. In this system the cliches form the background where the writers and directors build up the "something else" who made a horror movie good.

    In this case, John Carpenter use a very interesting language to create his movie. This happens because the movie don't waste time explaining the origin of the monster, he just focusing…

    "Why don't we just... wait here for a little while... see what happens?"

    You already know that this movie is fantastic, so let me speak for all of us when I say: The Thing is one of the most entertaining horror films ever made – it's fast, clever and pure excitement from start to finish. This is how all movies of this genre should be made. Yes. It's that good. I want to quickly thank Cineplex for having their Great…

    I have more affection for Halloween but I am forced to acknowledge that The Thing is Carpenter's more accomplished film. Apart from being a studio film with a sizable budget, and all the slick production value that comes with that, The Thing shows Carpenter more assured as a director. His staging of claustrophobic scenes is killer; he's able to violate the fourth wall without the audience really cluing into it, thereby preserving the carefully built suspense. And, make no mistake,…
