Who thinks The Thing from Another World was a poor adaptation of the story?

The 1951 original Thing movie, it wasn't even an adaptation of the novella "Who Goes There" by John Campbell as it was just it's own film.

The monster wasn't even the shapeshifter, it was just a dumbed down killer carrot vampire alien Frankenstein wannabe because they didn't have the technology in the 50's to make it a shapeshifter.

Now Carpenter's version remains THE definitive faithful adaptation.
