The Thing

The Thing ★★★

awesome evil dead style gore, the set location and overall design are classic 80s gorey scifi that i love. i got really confused with the plot though, there were so many characters and so much paranoia that i got distracted by trying to remember if something was mentioned or if it was meant to be unknown. the characters weren't super compelling, there was no connection to them to make us care, and they all seemed way to calm about the whole thing. like no one was ever like "what the hell is this" they're just like "alright where's my flamethrower" which is funny when they've been fighting it for a while but like from the start they're unphased by it.
