The Thing

I felt compelled to post an entry on “The Thing,” the John Carpenter remake of the 1950’s sci-fi classic. Starring Kurt Russell, this movie, forgive me for being bias towards it, is one of the best sci-fi movies ever made. A U.S. crew stationed in the Antarctica is encountered by and fights off an alien that can kill humans and recreates itself in the human, or even animal image. There is definitely a similarity to “Invasion of the Body Snatchers.” The setting and mood is perfect: frigid temperatures and trapped in the middle of nowhere like the crew in “Alien” trapped in the ship in space, and each one wondering if the next one is now the “thing.” It’s the best thing Kurt Russell has ever done and it also has one of the best sci-fi horror movie "scores" of all time. I’ve seen it a million times and it never grows old. Rent it!
