The Thing (2011) Red Band Trailer

I love John Carpenter’s version of The Thing. Every year in the dead of winter I turn off all the heat (and the lights) and watch it wrapped in a blanket, shivering in the night. I remember seeing it for the first time in an almost completely empty theater in my hometown and I loved every second of it. I was venturing into makeup effects at the time and Rob Bottin’s work just blew me away! His outstanding work still holds up today. With that said, I’m a little hesitant about this movie, but I’m really hoping that it doesn’t let me down.

  1. I’m with you on Carpenter’s version,, I was hesitant to watch the new one but finally did the other night and I HAVE NEVER BEEN SO ANGRY AS I WAS WATCHING THIS GIANT FROZEN POLAR BEAR TURD OF A MOVIE!!!!! I WAS FURIOUS!!!! WHAT A WASTE< WHAT A PIECE OF TRASH, WHAT LACK OF EVERYTHING!!!! It's only a prequel during the last three minutes of wasted footage spliced into the end credits!!! Completely disgusting on every level of story telling…

  2. I have to agree with you there. Very disappointing….
