The Thing Reviews
The sense of paranoia & dread is expertly crafted and the plot is full of meticulously planned mystery that will make multiple viewings a joy.
As someone who find jump scares excruciatingly simplistic & predictable, this movie is a master-class on the subject. while there are only a small number, they are earned in spades & you find yourself going back to watch it again, just to see how he tricked you.
I can't say enough, if you are a fan or horror, sci-fi, Lovecraft, creature features or Kurt Russel, you NEED to see this film. It's John Carpenter as the absolute peak of his craft.
