5.0 out of 5 stars A very intense scary movie, 15 Feb. 2007
This review is from: John Carpenter's The Thing [DVD] [1982] (DVD)
If you can remember Alistair McLeans "Ice Station Zebra" then "The Thing" will really grip you with some stunning special effects and a superb atmosphere throughout the entire movie.

A group of scientists who have travelled to this remote ice station to carry out research discover a massive Flying Saucer imbedded in the ice, but unknown to them its occupant is hiding in a dark corner at their ice station base waiting to inhabit a human body and digest it from the inside out.

It is the suspense of not knowing what will happen next that makes this a trully great film.

The Alien creature has made its home inside the living body of one of the research scientists, and who do not know which one, until it breaks free in an incredibly graphic nature, hence the spectacular special effects associated with this Kurt Russell movie.

Possibly due to its slow pace it may not appeal to everyones taste, but when the alien form makes its apearence you soon realise this is a superb film with some simply stunning special effects.

Each member of the team soon realise that THE THING may be lurking in any one of their team and the not knowing who gives it a 5 star rating.

The scene that really steals the show has a canine flavour to it, and to tell you what happens will spoil the entire film.

If you enjoyed Alien then this film will certainly make the grade, but if a slow paced gripping drama is not for you then look elsewhere, but for gripping drama with incredible special effects this film is amongst the best out there.
