If it's crap ... We'll tell you
Please move this post.
BTW, the THING looks like SOME OL' BULLSHIT! How dare Hollywood remake this classic!
As someone who is a huge fan of the original movie, I'm......not impressed.
A few things.
1) As much as I loved Mary Elizabeth Winstead in Scott Pilgrim (and Sky High, a guilty pleasure of mine), she seems out of place in this film. In the original movie, everyone seemed like regular people, people you'd buy working in a arctic base in the middle of nowhere. Once again, this looks like your generic cast of any crappy horror movie.
2) Why all the CGI?!?!?! Do they not understand the appeal of the original?
3) The creature doesn't seem to appear as subtle as it did in the original. They seem to have forgotten that the creature waited until it was alone to attack someone. This movie seems to think otherwise.
Overall, I think it's going to be a disappointment. A cash in horror movie that's based on one of my favorite movies ever.
