    It's gross and bloody. Be ready for some class A alien slime.

    I've read a lot of scary stuff on the Internet, but never something so scary it made me immediately retrieve the revolver I keep in the top drawer of my desk... y'know, in case assimilation completes.

    This is one of the greatest horror movies of all time. John Carpenter is a master of suspense. As shown by the scene where Russell is testing the blood. Its just so clever. The idea that you cant trust anyone in the movie is just terrifying. I have see this twice before and I cant remember the last time I was on the about to leap out of my chair like I did for this, from even watching a movie I haven't seen even once.

    Best advert for tangible, gooey effects over CGI I've ever seen. I just wish that the characters had been better defined- didn't even manage to learn any of their names (except Kurt Russell's) by the time the credits started to roll. Although it was a great ending.

    When I think of the term 'movie magic', John Carpenter's The Thing is one of the many films that's always springs to mind. Everything about The Thing is pure entertainment of the highest caliber. Much like one of the Thing's tentacles. this film just reels you in and doesn't let go until it's considerably bold conclusion. Paranoia runs rampant in this film always quietly bubbling until it reaches its breaking points that's surprise and frighten you as much as it…

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    The Thing, John Carpenter’s remake of the Howard Hawks film The Thing from Another World and, more directly, of John W. Campbell’s novel Who Goes There?, builds horror with the intensity of any paranoia thriller (specifically the 1978 version of Invasion of the Body Snatchers), but mixes in visceral, inventive imagery that makes it unique. The film depicts a twelve-person crew in a research outpost in Antarctica, who are beset by a somewhat-invisible alien life form that can kill and…

    [Una confesión antes de empezar bien: siendo yo un niño no se me permitía ver películas de terror con el pretexto de que se me podía pervertir (o algo así, mi familia siempre fue muy religiosa). Por lo tanto casi mi único recuerdo de terror en pantalla se reduce a ver a escondidas Los Expedientes Secretos X. Es ahora que en estos momentos, a mis veintitantos años de edad, ando en la tarea de ver todos esos…

    John Carpenter's The Thing has stood the test of time for over three decades, something which should be regarded as a testament of the film's quality by itself. This timeless masterpiece is not only gripping, tense, and unceasingly terrifying, but also a prime example of how horror should be done.

    What separates The Thing from other films of the genre is, in my opinion, its brilliant writing. The plot is pretty straightforward - an American research team in the frozen…

    The Thing is a horrifying movie. In a time when the horror genre was coming into its own with what would become classic slasher icons the likes of Jason & Michael, John Carpenter had created something in the Thing like nobody had seen before or really after for that matter. Some of the movie works much like a body snatchers type story with paranoia that the man beside you isn't what he seems to be. However, when the creature inside lets…
