Mini Review

John Carpenter's 1982 movie is by far the best of the The Thing is by far the best of (so far) three versions of the John W Campbell Jr story. It reintroduces the shape-shifting element left out of 1951's The Thing From Another World and doesn't go as effect-heavy as 2011 version. Instead it concentrates on the atmosphere of isolation, claustrophobia and increasing paranoia.
