Tag: The Thing
Continuing our series on Hollywood remakes, this week’s film is one of those lauded remakes that many say is better than the original. While a horror movie may not be in the Christmas spirit, this film does have a lot of snow in it. This week, Cinelinx looks at John Carpenter’s The Thing.
Body horror plays off of one of our most natural reactions as living creatures, avoiding pain. Since we are all biologically pre-programmed to do this, body horror can be very efficient at making you squirm.
Announcements on a few films coming to blu-ray have recently come out so, and rather than slam you with several quick news updates, I thought it'd be easier to digest in this quick little News Bits style format.
Meanwhile, The Thing disappoints as the bird watching comedy The Big Year bombs.
While remakes, re-imaginings, and prequels to older films are generally regarded by the mainstream public to be anything from greedy filmmaker missteps to outright cinematic sacrilege, I was for one thrilled to hear about a prequel to John Carpenter's 1982 horror classic The Thing being developed. Several years later, horror fans can now rejoice as Carpenter's horrific, shape-shifting monstrosity has finally returned in all it's terrifying glory.
Damn, look at all the posters! It started with the first posters for Sherlock Holmes 2 but, in a mere 24 hours, things just kind of went crazy! Rather than take the time to right up separate pieces for each poster, we thought it would be easier just to combine them into one easy to read article. But just to let you know, The Dark Knight Rises poster won't be until the end. It would make all the other posters look pathetic in comparison if I put it at the top. Anyways, check out posters for Sherlock, Hugo, Muppets, and more after the jump.
