The overall message of The Thing emerges as distinctly hawkish. Reactionary or not, though, it's still a masterpiece. Full Review
Time Out
Feb 9, 2006
Rating: A+ -- The Thing (From Another World) (1951) is an influential and taut horror and science-fiction B-film hybrid, loosely based (by screenwriter Charles Lederer) on the short story Who Goes There? by John W. Campbell, Jr. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- Perhaps the most famous shot of the movie is also one of head-slapping irrelevance. Full Review
Oct 14, 2011
Rating: 3.5/4 -- It features crackling dialogue, deliciously subversive humor, confident and competent heroes, and a healthy air of sexual playfulness between its romantic leads. Full Review
