The Thing

The Thing
Buy this poster at
Horror maestro John Carpenter's remake of the 1950's classic, the thing from another world can now take on any shape it pleases, including humans, dogs, etc. This causes paranoia among a remote team at an Arctic outpost. But when the thing strikes, it does contain some interesting moments, if not suspenseful ones.

Kurt Russell and cast are completely overshadowed by the over-the-top special effects, some of which you can barely see, since it's so dark throughout the picture. Like most remakes, you'd be much better off renting the classic.

My Rating = Two Stars
