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

Slant’s 100 Greatest Horror Films – 2018 Edition (100 movies items)

"For all of the Grand Guignol overload of its special effects, The Thing is first and foremost an atmospheric film, one predicated on the claustrophobia and paranoia generated by its remote Antarctic-base setting. It’s there that a scientific crew discovers, then falls prey to an alien that can assume the form of any living being it touches, forcing the men stationed at the base to question the true identities of those around them.

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
