The Thing Review


At an Antarctica research site, the discovery of an alien craft leads to a confrontation between graduate student Kate Lloyd and scientist Dr. Sander Halvorson.

The producers of Dawn of the Dead bring us a great prelude to John Carpenter‘s cult classic horror film. Paleontologist Kate Loyd is called into a remote outpost in Antarctica to unravel a great mystery found out there. Mystery and wonder soon turn to horrendous fear when their specimen turns out to be alive and wreaks terror on the crew. The creature has the uncanny ability to mimic anything it touches.

Overall I loved the movie despite the mixed reviews floating out there. Some weird points like having a creature in a chunk of ice with no form of protection or restraints make the movie a little over the top. I loved the tone of the horror movie The Thing from the start and that sense of creepiness stayed pretty consistent throughout the entire film. Everyone should definitely see The Thing with a nice clear mind and they will most likely like it too. A really unexpected good horror movie to watch.
