Film Friday: The Thing
A classic horror movie from 1982 (that was actually a re-make of an even older movie), directed by John Carpenter and starring a young Kurt Russel and a really young Keith David (whom I've discussed being a big fan of). This movie was great back in the 1980s, but has it aged well? Let's review...
For those unfamiliar with the movie, and without me giving it away, it is basically about an alien that can look like anyone that infiltrates a US Antarctic Research Base, resulting in both gross monster-moments, and tense psychological thrills as the men on the base grow ever more suspicious of each other.
4 out of 5 stars.
