    ★★★★

    This is quite generic and predictable up to a point, but for me it’s lifted by some extremely nasty scenes and an insane twist ending that I didn’t see coming.

    I wasn’t a fan of the original to be honest. I found it mean spirited and tasteless. This is just badly made miscast tosh....and Sharlto Copley gets seriously on my wick.

    ★★★★★

    I first saw The Thing on TV when I was a kid back in the mid 80s. I wasn't really prepared for what I was about to see. 

    Its one of the few films that literally kept me up at night, the first horror film that I ever found truly horrifying and upsetting...Ever since then I've had a complete passionate respect for the film, for the genre and Mr Carpenter himself....who did not deserve all the flack and unfair criticism…

    Pure mesmerising genius from the master of cinema........I’m not clever enough or good enough at writing reviews to leave one for 2001, so I’ll just leave it at that. 


    Happy 50th to a timeless piece of work.
