    ★★★★

    With stunning practical effects that could put any modern CGI to shame, and a great central performance from the ever brilliant Kurt Russell, The Thing is a paranoic and claustrophobic base under siege thriller at the top of its game. A simple concept, executed superbly.

    Olivia Cooke and Anya Taylor-Joy together in a film. I mean, what’s not to like? Two of the finest young actresses working today, and they’re phenomenal in this!


    The pacing and structure is unconventional, yet sharp and tightly wound. It plays like a Yorgos Lanthimos movie and gets increasingly more uncomfortable (especially with its use of long takes) but enjoyable as it goes along. It’s pretty much perfect. 


    Can’t wait to see what Cory Finley does next!
