  • One gut-busting death after another, terror giving way to tedium. Your call. show more

  • The best thing about The Thing, the third - and the least interesting - big-screen adaptation of the John W. Campbell Jr. short story "Who Goes There?", is its closing credits. show more

  • Heijningen doesn't display the instinct of the best Hollywood action directors to give the audience what it craves at the big moments, except for a few gory in-your-face shots. show more

    Are you people retarded? This isn\'t a remake, its a PREQUEL!!!!! To the 1982 film. That\'s why they\'re chasing the dog in the end, where the 1982 movie started......

    If you like this genre and didn\'t like this movie your a tool...nuff said the effects were great it was intense and the acting was decent what more could you want? Note to most movie critics \" noone in the real world likes those bullsh*t artsy movies you all think are so compelling, pull the tree branch outta your a*s and just enjoy being entertained for a change.

    This is simply a remake of the original. The original with Kurt Russell is still as scary if not more than this film. Sorry! Not worth the money!
