Spencer Draper's rating of the film The Thing from Another World

Tense, compact and absolutely influential. I just wish there was more meat on the bones as the overall tone is very B-picture with no well defined characterizations or plotting. Hawksian elements are there, but only if you're looking for them. I don't buy Hawks directing it at all but it is clear his influence is there.
