"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." Tagged as a loose remake of Howard Hawks' 1... read more

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.

1001 Movies ... my own version (1980's) (45 movies items)

" Notes: This movie started out with a very typical ominous score which, for once, was not written by John Carpenter but by the great Ennio Morricone. From there, it became a chilling horror flick with some rather gruesome special effects. Even though it was actually never really scary, there were still loads of tension since you never knew for sure, except for MacReady, who could be infected or not. I also appreciated the downbeat ending with no survivors, even the last 2 guys were left alone i"

"Scripts Gone Wild - May 24th I ended Sunday night with a Scripts Gone Wild edition of the original script of The Thing. Basically they assembled a bunch of people to read through the script and turn it into a drinking game. Any time anyone messed up their lines, they had to drink. Any time someone reading for a character in the film said a word with "thing" in it, everyone had to drink. And when they got to a certain line in the script everyone had to finish their drink. One of them didn't drin"
