Movie trailer


Could've have been as good if not better than the original if they didn't use computer generated effects as a crutch. The original used puppets, stop motion, and all sorts of delightful craziness that made it absolutely TERRIFYING! Made me never want to go to antartica... because yeah that's a popular vacation spot.
I couldnt help but waiting throughout the whole film for the chopper scene with which the 1982 film started. And it came. Man was I a happy boy :-D (Or is this a spoiler ;-)
It's right here on Solar ;) I miss those good ole' saturday mornings. Now they just saturate children with dribble. The Teletubbies are pretty horrific, though.
Ah, yes, but the original was based off of the short story published in 1938, and the alien was a plant that fed on blood. The backdrops are the same; the isolation of the arctic north, but the changing the alien into a doppleganger totally changed the psychology of the movie. Now, not only are you isolated and cut off from any chance of outside intervention, but any one of your most trusted colleagues could now have murderous intent.
Yup! They did the best they could at making it the same scene, even. Crazy Swede shootin at a dog from a helicopter.
@Darthintrepid WOW I forgot about that.
The end being of this film is the beginning of John Carpenter's The Thing 1982 starring Kurt Russel. Thanks for pointing that out.

The ending isn't actually an ending, it's the beginning of the original (with Kurt Russell). This was a great way to make reboot, and a prequel at the same time. I still have yet to watch them consecutively, I may just do that this weekend.
Alien spaceship crashes into Antarctica 100,00 years ago, and is discovered by a group of researchers, along with a body of an alien trapped inside the ice. They unearth the creature, and things begin going wrong very quickly. A fun weekend horror flick, some good scares and effects shots, and blood and gore of course. 8/10
