  1. VENIMOS LOS JODIMOS Y NOS FUIMOS's rating of the film The Thing

    Esta segunda versión del clásico de 1951 es una buena muestra del gran oficio del realizador John Carpenter, quién habilmente combina el horror y la ciencia ficción en una cinta que se destaca por su estupendo manejo del suspenso y la violencia gráfica, resultando esenciales los aportes del maquillador de efectos especiales Rob Bottin, los cuáles siguen luciendo tan logrados (y repugnantes) como hace 35 años.

  2. †. Kennedy Pope's rating of the film The Thing

    Carpenter's best. Doesn't get any creepier than this.

  3. Henri de Corinth's rating of the film The Thing

    Rewatch of a restored 35th-anniversary print. How old-fashioned this film is! The lighting/color schemes (all the humans are drab while the alien gore is three dozen different colors), the acting beats, and the incidental music (aside from the main theme) would all be right at home in a '40s-'50s genre film.

  4. ammar's rating of the film The Thing

  5. Margot H's rating of the film The Thing

  6. Graveyard Poet's rating of the film The Thing

    Carpenter's best horror movie and perhaps the best horror movie of the 1980s.

  7. Renton47's rating of the film The Thing

    Remains for me a benchmark of experiential film-making. A perfect confluence of the elements, technical and textual, that in its black-hearted masculine outpost sets the standard for how lean, simple, genre can remain. A horror where complacency is the evil, and illogical cries of despair might best express our humanity. Pure, a deeply formative work.

  8. Catarina Monteiro's rating of the film The Thing

    GOOD special effects and good suspanse. the snow photography is truly beautiful (we are all alone)

  9. Adam Whybray's rating of the film The Thing

    Starts off feeling oddly staid, but builds to a point of viscerally-felt isolation. The prosthetics and stop-motion are flat-out awesome and the soundtrack is deservedly iconic. A damn good horror sci-fi that comes close to allowing me to enjoy traditional manly masculinity [on film at least].

  10. Tyler Wright's rating of the film The Thing

    Truly a masterpiece of horror cinema...actually, it's just a flat out masterpiece.

  11. soymilky's rating of the film The Thing

    Genuinely creepy movie with a creepy, simplistic premise and setting. Excellent practical effects that still hold up to this day + felt like the movie didnt have unnecessary padding and filler sections

  12. luz de topos's rating of the film The Thing

  13. Shawnmubi's rating of the film The Thing

    One of my all time favourite horror movies.

  14. The Mayor Of Hell's rating of the film The Thing

    A bout as perfect a horror/thriller as you can make. Paranoia screams out of the screen. The effects are spectacular and will forever hold up. Kurt is the man and I think this may be carpy and his best collaboration. You feel cold watching this film.

  15. Renightz's rating of the film The Thing

    Although it's an interesting film, it hasn't aged well. There seems to be no substance beneath the display of technique and the visual effects. Besides, the issue of simulacra, the impossibility of trust and the imminent destruction of a nation by the works of an enemy from within - complex themes related to the 80s and the Cold War era - goes unexplored. John Carpenter's film has horror alright, but lacks suspense.

  16. luís debonoir's rating of the film The Thing

  17. Emilie Sovis's rating of the film The Thing

    One of a very small selection of films which have haunted numerous of my nightmares. The scariest thing isn't even so much the monster as what its presence does to us.

  18. Aaron Dillenbeck's rating of the film The Thing

    If the simplest desire for a movie is to entertain the viewer than The Thing deserves all the praise it gets and more. An amazingly dark, shocking, disgusting, and funny movie. The practical effects are as good as they come and the tension between the characters is uncomfortably thick. A must watch and a classic in every sense.

  19. Frances's rating of the film The Thing

    A movie that influenced many others. scary. Crazy in camera tricks esp for the time shooting on 100T stock.

  20. ermete polpette's rating of the film The Thing

  21. abyantama's rating of the film The Thing

  22. Stian Gledje Bekkvik's rating of the film The Thing

  23. David R Williams's rating of the film The Thing

    One of the greatest SCI-FI horror films ever. Unrelenting.

  24. Elia Canevascini's rating of the film The Thing
