John Carpenter's The Thing Is a great classic that not that many people have seen today and for those how have seen this you know what I mean. What makes this film so great is that its so different from any movie I have ever seen. For the most part horror films have bad story telling, bad acting and is usually just bad. Thats not The Thing, The Thing is really a true masterpiece. Everything about it is just perfect, the acting, the directing, the writing just everything about this movie is perfect. The best thing about this movie would have to be the atmosphere in this movie. It feels like your in the middle of nowhere and this thing is around imitating things. I mean it could be anyone it could be you and you wont even Know that its you infected. The musical score by Ennio Morricone is spectacular and one of the best ever. The main part of the score is just to very low bass notes that just puts you in the awkward feeling that you know something bad is going to happen. The acting by everyone is very well done and is believable by everyone. The directing by John Carpenter is pitch perfect, I had never really like John Carpenter directing in any of his movies Until I saw this.

I am ashamed to say it, but I have to admit, the first time I saw this film was only about a year ago. After seeing it, I immediately rushed out and bought the DVD collectors' edition and have watched it many times since.
The film is terrific on many levels. It works as your straight monster or action type film, as a horror/sci-fi and also as a very intriguing look into the human psyche. The incredible sense of paranoia, mistrust and fear, lent not only by Carpenter's direction (which is stunning) but also by the incredible acting of the cast in general. Kurt Russell (obviously) is spectacularly understated in the lead role of MacReady, and, as a direct result he "feels" like a real person, rather than a hollywood "all american hero". The other cast members all carry off their roles with style, and the net result is an intensely believable atmosphere, and a truly fantastic film.
This is another one of those films that I remember staying up late towatch on TV, scaring the crap out of myself at the impressionable ageof 12 or so and dooming myself thereafter to a life of horror movieobsession. This is a GREAT movie, and stands as living proof that therewere indeed realistic effects before CGI.
Set on an isolated base in Antarctica, this version seems almost topick up where the original version (The Thing From Another World) leftoff. The American scientists discover a decimated Norwegian base somemiles distant. Everyone is dead, and only the half charred remains ofsome unidentifiable thing left to smolder outside the compound mightoffer any answers to what may have happened. The Thing is brought backto the American base and, too late, the scientists realize that it isalive and lethal. The Thing thaws out and is off, not only killinganyone and anything that crosses Its path, but also absorbing them,making Itself into whoever and whatever it wants. The film then turnsinto a brilliant paranoia piece. Everyone is suspect, anyone can be TheThing, and no one trusts anyone anymore. Gone is the strength andsecurity found when human beings band together in spite of theirdifferences to battle a monster. The group splinters and fear rulessupreme. Who is the Thing?
The gore effects here are absolutely amazing and messily realistic. Icould have done without the dogs head splitting open like a bananapeel, but that's just the animal lover in me being picky: kill all thehumans you want, but leave the kitties and puppies alone. Sanity andreason disintegrate rapidly as, one by one, the humans are taken overby the shapeshifting alien. The power of this film lies in itsparanoia, and although I liked the original version, I prefer this one;the real threat lies within, and is scarier for the fact that it cannotbe seen or easily detected. When it is forced out of hiding, it's wrathis huge and the results are horrific.
This is one of Carpenters best films, right up there with The Fog andHalloween. All of the actors give strong, realistic performances andthe special effects are so powerful that they stand as their own maincharacter. This film has something for any lover of the horror genre.Don't miss it.
