One of John Carpenter's finest

"I know I'm human. And if you were all these things, then you'd just attack me right now, so some of you are still human. This thing doesn't want to show itself, it wants to hide inside an imitation. It'll fight if it has to, but it's vulnerable out in the open. If it takes us over, then it has no more enemies, nobody left to kill it. And then it's won."

What’s amazing about the film is that the older I get the scarier the film is. I must have seen the film a half dozen times now. I first watched it when I was a kid, maybe 11 or 12, and I just kind of loved the gore effects. Was just riveted by them. Every subsequent rewatch has unsettled me a little more and watching it a few nights back the film struck me in a way that I wasn’t expecting. It... read more

It doesn’t matter how many times you watch The Thing, it still has the ability to raise the hairs on the back of your neck and forces you to the edge of your seat.
The dark, brooding atmosphere starts at the opening credits when the title burns its way through the screen. The eerie thudding music accentuates this and the tone doesn’t let up for the full running time.

Top 20 Favourite Horror Movies (20 movies items)

" Plot: Scientists in the Antarctic are confronted by a shape-shifting alien that assumes the appearance of the people that it kills. Tagged as a loose remake of Howard Hawks' 1951 flick The Thing from Another World (itself an adaptation of a John W. Campbell novella), John Carpenter's The Thing is a seminal horror picture that hooks you in from the outset and never lets go. Although the production is now considered a cult classic and one of Carpenter's finest efforts, The Thing was not exactl"

"I have to include at least one Horror movie in this list and it's going to be this one. John Carpenter does a great job at remaking "The Thing" with gruesome gore and awesome action. The greatest movie remake. "

Bml93's List of Remakes - Ranked (91 movies items)

"Remake of: The Thing from Another World The RemakeI've always enjoyed the fear, paranoia and isolation that's present in The Thing, as well as its practical effects. But I guess I'm in the minority of thinking that it's overlong and at times rather dull. I do like the Norwegian the beginning, seeing as I understand his very broken attempt at shouting in Norwegian. It's amusing. vs."

"17.1, DVD, Rewatch ****½ --- ***** Onpa vaan helkkarin hieno suspense-leffa edelleen. Tunnelma on jotain aivan upeaa viihdyttävyyden ja jännittävyyden ääripäissä seikkailemista, jota efektit ja tunnari tukevat hienosti."
