New clip from The Thing ramps up the paranoia

09.30.2011by: Eric Walkuski

We're starting to see a good deal of stuff now from Universal's THE THING as we amble our way toward its release date. However, this is our first new clip from the film in almost a month. Our first clip gave us a nice jump scare or two; this new one focuses more on the "who can you trust?" angle, which seems more or less in line with the simmering paranoia in John Carpenter's version. Dig the final moment...

Directed by Matthijs van Heijningen and starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Joel Edgerton, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Ulrich Thomsen, andEric Christian Olsen, THE THING breaks down like this:

Antarctica: an extraordinary continent of awesome beauty. It is also home to an isolated outpost where a discovery full of scientific possibility becomes a mission of survival when an alien is unearthed by a crew of international scientists. The shape-shifting creature, accidentally unleashed at this marooned colony, has the ability to turn itself into a perfect replica of any living being. It can look just like you or me, but inside, it remains inhuman. In the thriller The Thing, paranoia spreads like an epidemic among a group of researchers as they’re infected, one by one, by a mystery from another planet.

Paleontologist Kate Lloyd (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) has traveled to the desolate region for the expedition of her lifetime. Joining a Norwegian scientific team that has stumbled across an extraterrestrial ship buried in the ice, she discovers an organism that seems to have died in the crash eons ago. But it is about to wake up

THE THING opens on OCTOBER 14th.

although i still have serious reservations about this flick, this is the first clip that i've seen that actually works...im aware that the scene is a plain and simple rip off of a scene in the original, but i was still vibing on it a little. maybe theres some hope...wait, no there isnt....

History rhymes.

Well, seeing that both stations ended up blown to smithereens after their mutual Thing encounters, it doesn't surprise me that events will parallel each other with a group of people in an isolated place. Not knowing who's who, or what's what, that they'd react the same.

Agreed! Which is why a prequel was not the most creative direction to go to return to this story. Would rather have seen a sequel with Mac and Childs' bodies found and one of them is the thing which is released during autopsy.

Arrow hit the nail on the head when he called this a "premake". This is practically scene for scene from Carpenter's flick. The last bit is like when Kurt Russell broke in through the storeroom window after being locked out. They couldn't at least come up with their own narrative? Just like "The Thing" itself an alien imitation of Carpenter's version. How ironic!
