The Thing ★★★★

Incredibly tense... much more so than I had remembered.

I know that there’s lots to praise about this film, and I never thought I’d see the day where an Ennio Morricone score wasn’t the best thing about a movie, but... I have to give credit to the practical effects of John Carpenter’s “The Thing”, which are - in my opinion - the single-most impressive factor of this movie. 

We don’t need a CGI copy-and-paste shebang to get to the bottom of real horror. This film absolutely proves that..
