I JUST CANNOT BELIEVE ANY OF THIS VOODOO
Whether it’s a prequel, remake, or reboot, this new version of The Thing is actually happening. Sigh. I keep telling myself that John Carpenter’s alien inner-space invasion flick was a remake itself, as well as an adaptation of the John W. Campbell short story, and that I should just calm the hell down and find a way to look forward to this new “interpretation.” But I can’t! After suffering through this weekend’s horrendous Conan the Barbarian remake, and scratching my head at the not so Planet-of-the-Apesy Rise of the Planet of the Apes, I don’t want to see one of my favorite 80s horror films get fiddled with, let alone CGI’d to crap.
But, the film is happening. You’ve seen the trailer. It’s got the dogs. It’s got the ice and the snow. It’s got a couple ladies. The question still remains if it’s gonna deliver on the monster itself, The Thing. Well, if these leaked set photos are to be believed, than it looks like director Matthijs Van Heijningen at least has an inkling of that glorious Rob Bottin grossness. These photos originally appeared on The Thing’s unofficial Facebook page, but have quickly spun the Internet into Nerd Outbursts.
