THE THING is Underrated – Cinemassacre Review

THE THING is an underrated classic. Oh, did you think I meant John Carpenter’s The Thing from 1982?? No, I mean the Howard Hawks original film from 1951 called The Thing from Another World, which usually has been referred to as just “The Thing”. It’s an American black-and-white science fiction-horror film based on the 1938 novella Who Goes There? by John W. Campbell. In the movie, a U.S. Air Force crew and scientists find a crashed flying saucer and a humanoid body frozen in the Arctic ice. Returning to their remote research outpost with the body still in a block of ice, they are forced to defend themselves against the still alive and malevolent plant-based alien when it is accidentally defrosted.
