The Thing

The Thing
Director: John Carpenter
Writer: Bill Lanchester
Starring: Kurt Russell, Wilford Brimley, Keith David

Review by: Scotty

I have had the pleasure of seeing this movie several times and it was enjoyable to re watch this classic sci-fi thriller.

Taken place in the frigid cold of Antarctica “The Thing” haunts, terrorizes and kills whatever it can and it has its sight on an American Science Expedition Group.  It slowly picks through the members of the team and and due to its ability to take on charecteristics of any individual it is tough to know who to trust and who not to.  This creates an environment of uncertainty amongst the group which in turn creates a chaotic and frightening journey through human emotion and survival.

The Thing did not recieve initial kudos due to an untimely release but as time has passed it has become a cult classic and continues to gain respect from critics.  Although Carpenter has had some great horror movies such as Halloween and Assault on Precinct 13, this is my favorite and cannot help but watch when I see it on the schedule.  This is a must see for everyone unless you have issues with suspense and surprises.  I give it 3 guys easy.
