One of the best horrow films EVER created. The Thing, as a film and conceptually, is creepy. Outstanding visuals, for the 1980s, and is "very very very spooky." Kurt Russel gives one of his best performances.... Full review

I understand that this film was and still is a masterpiece, but it just isn't for me. This movie isn't for everyone, I love John Carpenter's work, but this one just didn't click with me. I really wanted to like it,... Full review

I found the Thing to be one of the best horror movies because it is exellent in its own way. The feeling of claustrophobia lingers throught the movie. A must watch for all you horror fans out there!... Full review

Seriously, I can't believe I never heard of this movie before...and when you are watching it, don't say, 'This are some crappy special effects.' This is 1982...I think they are pretty darn good. The setting for the story is PERFECT. Trapped... Full review

With the exception of "ALIENS", I don't think there has been a better sci fi movie made. Clearly John Carpenter's best movie to date. Kurt Russell was also equally brilliant. I loved the story and the atmosphere of it. This is... Full review

This has to be by far Carpenter's best film ever! Kurt Russell and Keith David perfect for their parts. The special effects were crazy the gore was so realistic. The norris transformation was the best one of them all. It's amazing... Full review

If you want to see a classic yet sadly underrated horror film then be sure to check out this 80's remake of The Thing.....The pacing of the movie is slower than what movies in the new millennium are accustomed to....However this remake of The Thing by horror directed John Carpenter creates a tension-filled atmosphere of paranoia that only adds to the 'alien monster movie' thrills.....It also stands out as one of the movie's most impressive moments..... ...
