Halloween Day 13: The Thing

Seems appropriate that while the new Thing movie opens I do a post about the 1982 movie. It is hard being a horror fan and having to dismiss most remakes when two of my favorite horror movies themselves are remakes (the other being The Fly). John Carpenters The Thing is a near perfect movie. Brilliant creature effects, great cast and tension beyond belief. So before heading out the see the new one, make some time to watch the 1982 version, it is one of the best horror movies of all time.
