The Thing

The Thing ★★★★★

The Thing is John Carpenter's Masterpiece. He has other movies that are scarier, cooler or smarter, but The Thing is his magnum opus. This is a movie that John Carpenter made that nobody else could've. His vision is pure and visceral and utterly bleak. Every shot, every scene is orchestrated for maximum impact. Even people without any love for horror get sucked into his apocalyptic vision. It's brilliant and despite many attempts, nobody else has come close to replicating the feel of this film.
