First time seeing a John Carpenter movie, and I was not disappointed. Carpenter's directing skills combined with the basic but effective score creates a reaaaaally tense movie, and you quickly become as paranoid as the characters themselves, doubting the whole crew ans seeing the titular "Thing" eveything.

The famous scenes are obvious highlights (I was on the edge of my seat during the whole "Test" scene) and the fact that the characters are given no background yet are characterized and easily distinguishable is quite the achievement.

In short, the best horror movie I've seen up until now.

P.S : Thinking "Oh he should clearly do this and fast" and seeing the character do it, i.e having smart characters in a horror movie is a delight.
