Customer Review

on April 18, 2013
The original 1951 version (The Thing From Another World) was an interesting movie but was just begging for a remake. The Kurt Russell 1982 version (The Thing) was quite good but - give me a break - a fully formed creature leaping out of a glass dish with maybe an ounce of blood in it? They could have done it better (see the 1951 approach which was more believable!). This (2011) version, though supposedly a "prequel" to the 1982 version. wasn't as good and seemed little more than a rehash of the Russell storyline. Bottom line? Sub-par story line exceeded only by the poor acting. Buy it at a yard sale or the local dollar store or a cheap Red-Box rental. Otherwise, pass it up.
