The Thing Review
Written by: BASSI
John Carpenter's The Thing is one of the best horror film ever made. John Carpenter brings us this Brilliant remake of the thing from another world. An alien is found in the Antarctic, frozen in time awaiting its chance to live again. It shape-shifts into whatever it kills and then it kills again.
Carpenter achieves Horror in two ways; one is the very Graphic Alien Scenes, which are both horrific and very visual. The other method he uses is far more subtle and effective; he shows us into the Psyche of the Potential Victims, their Fear and Paranoia are captured wonderfully, creating some great moments of Suspense and Tension.
The Cast all deliver outstanding performances from Kurt Russell, Wilford Brimley, Keith David, Donald Moffat, T.K. Carter, David Clennon, Thomas G. Waites, Richard Masur, Charles Hallahan, Richard A. Dysart, Joel Polis and Peter Maloney.
The movie is without doubt one of my favourites. I've seen it several times, but it's just as good as the first time I saw it. I can't recommend it highly enough
