How to Kill the Thing

‘The Thing’ is one of the goriest movies ever made, so don’t fall prey to this shape-shifting alien creature — here’s how to kill The Thing. Watch the skies and wax your flamethrowers, because Kya Quinn is here to tell you How to Kill the Thing! John Carpenter’s The Thing, the 1982 sci-fi horror movie by John Carpenter, starring Kurt Russell and Keith David, is a prime example of the scary, creepy alien terror of body horror. Among horror movies, it’s got a reputation as one of the goriest movies ever made, with incredible effects by Rob Bottin and Stan Winston. In The Thing 1982, John Carpenters mastery of atmosphere shines through as the Thing monster racks up an impressive body count.  No amount of kills in the kill count can make up for a forgettable monster, and luckily the Thing alien in the Thing movie delivers in spades. In every The Thing clip and The Thing trailer, each of the Thing sightings sets a new high mark for horror. The Thing 2011 movie, which was a The Thing Prequel, doesn’t quite live up to the John Carpenter The Thing version, but both are still more memorable than the original 1951 film, The Thing From Another World. They’re all excellent horror movies, and prime examples of scifi and horror mixing to create a terrifying new subgenre. » Subscribe to NowThis Nerd:
