The Thing Review:

John’s Carpenter’s masterpiece (along with “Halloween”), this movie is definitely one of the best (if not the best) monster movie ever did!

The concept of alien mimicking people allows Carpenter’s to create an incredible tension based on distrust between the characters. During the movie, you never know who is what, and I think that Carpenter did a pretty good job at surprising the viewer many times. Some of the scenes are absolutely magic for anyone who is found of monster, the alien being different and awesomely-looking at each apparition. The good acting performance of Kurt Russell and the fact that the characters are on their own, isolated in an Antarctic facility, all together create a very unique atmosphere. If you haven’t watched it yet, put it immediately on top of your watchlist!
