Later this fall a movie called The Thing will be unleashed in theaters. This isn’t a blasphemous remake of the classic John Carpenter movie (which itself was a remake), but rather a prequel to the Carpenter film showing what happened to the researchers prior to that movie. It’s an awesome idea for a prequel, and it’s looking as if they pulled it off perfectly.
The movie will be R rated, and from the trailer below it looks like its doing a very good job replicating the tone of the Carpenter version. You heard of the research team in that movie, and this one will show how they discovered the Thing and how they were wiped out. It’s been too long since we’ve had a scifi/horror movie like this and hopefully it’ll revive the genre.
