The Thing Movie Review

John Carpenter made one of his better films back in 1982 but had the unfortunate bad luck to have to release it two weeks after E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial came out. Luckily, The Thing endures as a very good horror flick: genuinely scary and full of tension, and populated by one bad-ass monster. Russell does some good work as the star, but it's the supporting cast that set the pace for dozens of trapped-with-a-monster knockoffs to follow over the next 20 years.
