  1. Nick Schwab's rating of the film Harbinger Down

    It's not that Harbinger Down is close to The Thing-- to be fair, Carpenter's proved a direct remake could be masterful-- it's simply the film is poorly done. The dialogue isn't good, but it wouldn't have been as grating if Director Alec Gillis wasn't ham-fisted behind the camera. His directing-- relying mainly on close-ups with some medium shots--- is not often framed properly. The mise-en-scene is just unengaging.

  2. Steve G.'s rating of the film Harbinger Down

    Barely mediocre The Thing rip-off with some decent creature effects and not much else. Even Lance Henriksen can't be be arsed with this, but it's alright if you're in the mood for something that's going to be crap.
