The Thing

Written October 30, 2011
Sound was lost about 15-15 minutes into show, 15 minutes later they were still 'working on it', could not say for sure if show would be rewound, restarted, or what. I demanded my money back, will wait for it to come out on PPV or VOD!!!

The Thing

If you like horror movies you will love The Thing. It has a great cast, a good story line, and enough surprises and suspense to make you jump in a couple places. I really enjoyed it and think it did great for a prequel. If you liked the original Thing then you will enjoy this movie.

i thought this movie was a really excellent remake of the 1982 version. it was scarier and the special effects were excellent. on a scale from 1 to ten, i give it an 9. they stuck to the previous version with a few changes/observations that only made the storyline better, very smart ending. if you like slick horror, you will enjoy this picture. this is one for your dvd collection.

A decent prequel

Being such a die-hard fan of the original film, I was looking forward to seeing this one. Doing some research, I found that they took great pains to maintain continuity with the original, something that I greatly appreciate. The film fell a bit below my expectations but was quite good overall. Great camera work. Amazing sweeping panoramas and tense tight shots. The majority of the cast seemed a bit rigid but Mary Elizabeth Winstead was stunning. The script definitely could have used some polish. There were many typical cliché plot conventions that took away from the story and the usage of CGI over practical effects lessened the impact. Still a decent prequel to one of my favorite movies.
