Solid, enjoyable monster yarn - a great prequel

"Either someone miraculously healed themselves, or someone is not who they say they are."

Whether accidental or not, when Bill Lancaster was writing John Carpenter's The Thing a full two decades ago, he also designed an ideal set-up for a prequel/remake. Considering how many classic horror films have been remade in recent years, it's frankly surprising that it has taken so long for ... read more

An average movie

Beforehand, I wasn’t sure about this one. Indeed, nowadays John Carpenter’s movies are really popular among remakers and this movie was already the 4th one they decided to redo. Of course, I know, it is not actually a remake but a prequel tot the classic directed by John Carpenter. However, I still think it was obviously marketed as a remake. Indeed, the title was the same, the poster was real... read more

The movie started with a promise, with Norwegian Scientist found something unique in Antarctica. However the movie gradually lost it grip, at least for me and turn into insanity, with alien life form mutating and imitating humans and the scientists and workers on the base had to run for their lives.

I like Sci Fi but The Thing suggesting a Prequel, the way it ended didnt appeal to me ... read more

31 Days of Horror (Halloween 2014) (39 movies items)

"OCTOBER 17: I actually watched this back-to-back with the 1982 film on the 16th, but because it had been a while since I last watched it and I forgot that it was a direct prequel to the other film, I am re-watching both of them on the 17th in reverse order. I like the 1982 film better overall, but I think I like the characters from the 2011 film more. I'm not a huge fan of Kate, but I do like that they included female characters in this one. The creature effects were better in the 1982 film. "

"October 2: Every time I pull out the Thing movies to watch, I always watch the 1982 version first, which is as it really should be, since that's the classic. However, this time around, I decided to watch this version first, which also makes sense as it was designed to be the prequel to the 1982 version. Most people seemed to dislike this movie, but I think it did a great job of living up to the reputation of the '82 version. Not as good, but a decent addition to the storyline. I feel like some o"

31 Days of Horror (Halloween 2016) (47 movies items)

"OCTOBER 21: Doesn't hold a candle to the 1982 John Carpenter movie, despite these being two different movies and not a remake. I didn't really care for Mary Elizabeth Winstead's character, but I thought all the other characters were well cast. FAVORITE SCENE: When Juliette morphs in the background behind Kate. FAVORITE DEATH: Sam Carter's."
