The Thing (1982) Review
Written by: The Creature
Okay. I'm not going to spend much time talking about the plot. But I will, however, give you an extremely breif plot outline of the film. A 100,000 year old alien is found buried in the snow on the South Pole. The alien can imitate people. Therefore, it's a struggle to understand who is the alien or who is not.
There. Got that out of the way. Now for my favorite part of reviewing movies. PRAISING!!!!
This film is fantastic. And let me say that this is the best Sci-fi/Horror film ever made! It's brilliantly directed by John Carpenter, responsible for such horror classics as Halloween and The Fog. The special effects are brilliant. Some of the best I've ever seen in fact. The special effects are a big part of why this film is so god damn great. And of course, the acting. Every character was played perfectly by every actor. Kurt Russel is the man.
Now for an important fact. The Thing is actually a remake of the Howard Hawks' film, "The Thing From Another World". And I must say by far, that this is the best damn remake of any film that I've ever seen.
If you haven't seen this film, just go out and by it. And I mean RIGHT NOW GOD DAMN IT!!!! Because this is a film that nobody wants to miss.
