One of the better remakes of all time John Carpenter's the Thing.
9.5 one of carpenters best movies
Probably Carpenter's best film. Good score! Most of those Bottin FX have yet to be topped by modern fx wizards and there fancy shmansy technology, IMO anyway. 9.5
Certainly one of my favorite Carpenter films. I agree, BloodMan, great score! Great FX! A true mans man movie, so much so that every character is of the male gender. Maybe just one female would have been a plausable idea. And I'm not talkin' Janet Reno plausable. I'm talkin' Natasha Henstridge plausable. Maybe instead of a 12 man research team, a 10 man 2 women, or 11 man 1 women research team. I'm flexible!!.....
Ah hell with it, it's a great movie, let's just leave it at that. Gave it a 9.
one of the best horror films ever , a big fat 10
10 - Enough Said
I gave it a ten, possibly my favourite horror movie. It's not just a fantastic horror film, it's a fantastic film, period. All of man's primal fears are covered perfectly here: isolation, claustophobia, fear of the unknown, paranoia, madness, etc. etc. Just perfect! Great photography, great score, great monster, just perfect!
And, might I add, just about the best ending a film has ever had.
I can't think of any better proof that CGI totally fucking sucks. A 10!
10 all the way !
I don't like remakes, but this is an exception. Great film.
This one scared the shit out of me for some reason when I first saw in the theater. 10
One of the very few remakes that can stand on it's own without looking like a hollow sham or a tired retread.Strong cast and terrific effects give it real saying power.A tv remake is in the works (yikes !).A very fine film,still underated.9.
definitely a 10 for me
10..One of Carpenters best.
10.Need I say more?
10! Carpenter's best aside from Halloween.
Another 10 here. I know it's been said already, but to date no film has surpassed this one when it comes to animatronics and special make-up effects. Rob Bottin is awesome.
10. It's by far my favourite John Carpenter movie. Along with Alien probably the best sci-fi horror movie ever made. I can't really find fault with any thing as far as this movie goes.
9.5 Every time I see this film it gets better and better. I love it.
