Same here.










The Thing is an excellent film. One of my favorite horror films from the 80's.

This is my favorite horror movie of all time, and its the movie that i rate all horror movies(atleast the creature/monster ones) too, it has a great setting, awesome cast, great director, and it keeps you guessing about who is the thing and give clues that everybody might be, and it has a great and fitting ending as well.


what's the opinion on this prequel/remake or whatever its being labeled that's coming out?

I'm looking forward to it. Hopefully it'll be a good time. I don't even care if they use CGI, if I want mind-blowing effects I'll watch the original.

I'll give it a chance. I'm not getting my hopes high for it because I don't want to be let down if it sucks.

I loved this movie, I have to say that i liked the original better. That being said John carpenter is the only one who could have remade this movie, and make it badass as it is.

And to whover said braindead was their favorite movie... Hell ya that movie rocks!

Not really a remake. In name only, like The Fly.

Some of the best effect work in ANY film in my opinion.

Anyone know of any flicks with creature FX resembling the ones in The Thing?
