The Thing ★★★½

70s/80s horror is more cool and fun than actually scary but the one thing that it had that today's horror lacks is the Demented Flesh Monster. Besides The Thing, it has also made appearances in Eraserhead, Alien, and Akira, but the créature grotesque seems to have been largely forgotten in modern horror. Overall I much prefer cosmic and A24 horror but I would be all for a return to the abominable.
