This Fall, there’s one movie you MUST see, The Thing! Yes, The Thing is a prelude to John Carpenter’s 1982 The Thing. I recently watched 1982 version and I loved it. There’s nothing like a good old classic gore movie.

What’s awesome about the 2011 The Thing is that it shows how everything came to be, how it all happened, where this “Thing” came from, how it was found, etc… If you haven’t watched the original version, rent it from Netflix it is awesome, and stay tuned as I keep you posted on the MUST SEE movie for this Fall.

Catch some of the images below for the new movie The Thing, and don’t forget to watch the trailer.

The Thing hits theater October 14, 2011.

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.

When a simple experiment frees the alien from its frozen prison, Kate must join the crew’s pilot, Carter (Joel Edgerton), to keep it from killing them off one at a time. And in this vast, intense land, a parasite that can mimic anything it touches will pit human against human as it tries to survive and flourish.
