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

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

"17.11. Tallenne Ei tää tiedä itsekään ollako esiosa vai uusversio. Loputtomuuksiin selitelty ja tyhmennetty versio rumalla CGI:llä ja naispääosalla vailla mitään muuta tarkoitusta, kuin päästä tekemään uusiksi Carpenterin elokuvan alkukohtaus. Ja tämäkin tietysti lopputekstien oheen. En tosiaan tiedä, miksi odotin tältä yhtään mitään."
