Mine has to be the blood test scene. I think that has to be the most intense part of the movie.

Thumbs down The Thing Blows

The special effects in this movie are repulsive, slimy and just plain disgusting! It might have been a good movie if they cut the FX some.

It has to be the blood test clip, as Darkjedi points out. The suspense/style in that scene has been stolen again and re-used
many times.

Re: Favourite scene?


And the F/X in Predator were outstanding? Come on now, if you watched the interview with John Carpenter, you would understand why the F/X in The Thing weren't Lucasfilm standard. He wanted to get away from the old 'just a man in a suit' creature and went the other way with help from Stan Winston. Because when you look at other monsters and how their made, like Aliens, Predator, etc., they're all just a man in a suit.

Re: Favourite scene?

yeah,i agree the special effects dont make the movie great ,its the tension between the characters and you cant fault it for that,
i know i will probably get loads of people disagreeing but i prefer this film to alien
this film deserves a sequel....

If they do it like they're doing the game I think it might work out. Taking off where the movie ended and going from there.

Re: Favourite scene?

its the tension and the interaction with the characters combined with their isolation from the real world which makes this film chilling. remember the first alien movie was the same. a group of several people battling a malevolent alien, isolated from the world unable to call for help. in the things case they were in anatarctica 'a 1000 miles from nowhere' and in the case of alien they were in deep space.

Re: Favourite scene?

The blood test scene by far - you had all the right ingrediants: suspense, tension, horror, gore and some light relief at the end of the scene when Garry says: "I know you gentlemen have been through a lot, but when you find the time, I'd rather not spend the rest of this winter tied to this ****ing couch!!"
