John Carpenters The Thing is scary as shit.Good thing i was watching it at around 11a.m.The synopsis of the whole film is this:an alien lands on earth,gets frozen,thaws out and tries to assimilate everyone.There was just a few things I didn’t have a clue about.First an easy one;they find a space ship and not one person says alien once throughout the film.Secondly,here’s the big one,the alien attacks you and gets inside you and can control the human and all that.You’d think that’d be the end of it.But no,it has to have a massive scene where it explodes and another version of you comes out of it.what the fuck?Sure if it was already controlling you and had taken you over why this extra step?Major plot hole i think.But besides that stuff this is a good film.It has Kurt Russell,but when he was good,in it.It’s got some really tense looks back and forth between actors and has you questioning who may and may not be ‘a thing’.
