"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

Buena crítica, aunque te equivocaste con lo del polo norte, se desarrolla en el polo sur.

The Thing es una de esas pocas películas de terror que realmente puedo decir que ha sobrevivido al paso del tiempo como casi ninguna otra de su genero, pero al mismo tiempo carga con problemas típicos del terror

Primero que todo, uno de los mas grandes aciertos de la película es el hecho de como esta juega mucho con el miedo a lo desconocido, no se vale de screamers de mierda para atormentar a los que la ven, puesto que maneja cosas como la falta de información sobre varias situaciones fuera de pantalla o incógnitas que deja para así armar la tensión entre los personajes los cuales intentan aniquilar una criatura que se esconde entre ellos y puede asimilarlos y tomar su forma. La incertidumbre también se ve reflejada en” read more

My Favorite Characters in Film (6 movies items)

"MacReady: Kurt Russell is a very underrated actor. All his partnerships with the also much underrated director John Carpenter are no less than cinematic gems. The Thing being the highest moment of their five movies together. This claustrophobic tale of complete mistrust is one of the greatest Masterpieces of all time, not only in horror but in general. Carpenter creates an enviroment of paranoia and misleading situations that keeps the spectator on edge from the first minute to the last. Ma"

Miika's Movie Diary - 2018 (149 movies items)

"4.2, Netflix, rewatch Useampien uusintakatseluiden myötä tämä on kadottanut sen yllätysmomenttinsa, mutta body horror-efektit ja erittäin tiivis ilmapiiri tekevät tästä edelleen nautittavan elokuvan. Kurt Russellin, Keith Davidin ja muiden äijien voimattomuus ja vainoharhaisuus "sen" soluttautuessa porukkaan on elokuvan suola."
