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.

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 (84 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."

"2.2. Netflix Uusintakatselu. Kun miehet alkaa hommiin, on naiset vaan tiellä, sanoi Kurt Russell ja alkoi poistamaan kaikki feminiinisyyden rippeet Antarktikselta. Paranoian ja body horrorin merkkiteos näyttää edelleen paremmalta, kuin about kaikki uudemmat yritykset. Hyökkäys poliisiasemalle -elokuvan hermostuttavan rajattu ympäristö ja miehisten miesten paineensieto sekä Halloweenin hiipivä ja kylmäävä kauhu ovat nyt päätyneet yhteen niin nihilistissä sfääreissä, ettei tä"

"Katsottu: 4.12.2017, Netflix Tämä osoittautui paremmaksi toisella katselukerralla. Nostin pisteytystä kolmesta ja puolesta neljään tähteen. Meinasin jopa antaa tälle neljä ja puoli. The Thing on erittäin jännittävä ja hyvin aikaa kestänyt kauhupläjäys. Tunnelma pysyy melkein koko elokuvan ajan kuumottavana ja erikoistehosteet (muutamaa kohtausta lukuunottamatta) olivat erinomaiset. Ennio Morriconen musiikit olivat myös mainiot. "
